Enter into Dialogue

Input

Panel-Discussion

Workshop

Listening to a given input you might start rethinking your own thoughts. This is where the inner Dialogue take’s place.

Small group offers a room for trust and careful communication. By training your ability of sharing personal experiences, you also work on Dialogue skills.

Usually we discuss for the purpose of gathering argument. The art of discussion is not to repeat only but, develop your argumentation by listening to each other.

The most intimate setting for a real Dialogue has always been and will always be a conversation between two people. Either friends or couples, collegues or family members might be common Dialogue partners.

Experiencing both possibilites and limits by doing arts or handicraft opens a new space of self-awareness. This might increase your ability to enter Dialogue with others.

After listening to input, discussion or debate, it might be youseful to rest for a while and calm down. Then you might become aware of a new aspect of yourself.

Playing games, leading games well, experiencing the often underestimated value of playing games. We had a super time, a plenty of fun and take home a lot of inspiration.
