And you thought YOU had fun !!!

At the end of our recent leadership seminar in the Ukraine, our participants use a special technique to work on their insights. According to different intelligence types (Gardner) we learn and remember differently when using for example movement. In this small video, participants move each of their hands differently, expressing a special leadership quality that they have found, and let the hand work out the integration between them through spontaneous movement. Astonishingly, the hands find a movement solution and the person has an insight about what the hands did, that they can use in the days to come. As you can see, most of them have their eyes closed, in order to better focus on the kinesthetic and proprioceptive process and not to be disturbed by visual information.

"Truth is like a baobab tree; one person's arms cannot embrace it" (African proverb) 

We are grateful to Florence Champin from Nairobi for passing on this proverb to us. It's an image that resonates with the essence of Deep Democracy, as we understand it. Even if some arms are pulling against each other, and not in touch, they are all trying to embrace the bigger truth.

Today raised its flag - though it's a provisional flag, it is a flag, nontheless, waving in the winds. Thanks to everyone  who helped to get this done.
