DAF's online Open Space Gathering with the theme In the Face of Collapse, How Do We Relate to Uncertainty?
This DAF global conversation (in Open Space Technology format) may include questions such as:
- What do we Know and what is really Unknown?
- How can the Unknown become our Invitation, and guide us?
...and the 4R’s of Deep Adaptation:
- Resilience: what do we most value that we want to keep, and how?
- Relinquishment: what do we need to let go of so as not to make matters worse?
- Restoration: what could we bring back to help us with these difficult times?
- Reconciliation: with what and whom shall we make peace as we awaken to our mutual mortality?
While we invite a focus on the theme and these questions, any topics are welcome in this Open Space event so please do come along with other questions and topics.
This conversation is organized by volunteers in the Deep Adaptation Forum. Our shared purpose is embodying and enabling loving responses to our predicament. DAF is an international space to connect people (online and in person) to foster mutual support, collaboration and professional development in the face of climate disruption and likely, inevitable or already unfolding economic and societal collapse.
