As Beehive we are committed to strengthening our capacity to collaborate and converse more creatively and generatively.
Starting to see that we are part of purpose and a movement that is bigger than each of us. Bigger than each of our communities of Practice. With this in mind we are contributing to a field of practice and connecting practitioners across the world having conversations that matter and organizing in ways that nurture our relationships to ourselves, each other and the natural world around us.
To support the cultivation of this field we want to connect to the roots and the essence of our practices and connect to the evolution of our work.
We are starting an exploration of :
What are the founding stories of our different communities?
What impulses and inspiration has driven the birthing, growth and evolution of this work?
Why is it important to continue to nurture our understanding and practice of working and being together?
What are the deeper underlying principles of this work?
How are the different strands of this work interwoven?
What’s happening in this larger movement?
What is my role in the evolution of this work?
We are opening the conversation as a rhythm of connecting as a larger community every 2 months. We are inviting our elders and pioneers of these practices to share their journey and perspectives on how this has evolved.
We will start this series with Toke Møller and Juanita Brown inviting stories about the origins of Art of Hosting and The World Café as well as the relationship between these two movements.
