Join a growing eco-system of practitioners who use the “art of scribing” to bridge the ecological, social, and spiritual divides we experience in our world today. Scribing – a process of drawing while people talk – provides a mirror that can help a system see itself in new light. With intention to build navigational capacity for the rapidly changing times in which we live, this program will focus on:

  • Activating intelligences of the Open Mind, Heart, and Will
  • Deepening practice of a visual sense-making discipline
  • Cultivating knowledge of social technologies

We will cover aspects of Presencing, System and Conversational diagnostics, Four Levels of Listening, Generative Scribing, Discernment for ‘Letting Go and Letting Come’, 2D Modeling, Project Planning, and shared Applications of this work in a variety of contexts. The learning process will involve presentations, hands-on practice, individual and peer-to-peer reflections, and large group conversations.

Who should participate?

  • Scribes who want to bring Presencing into their practice
  • Theory U practitioners wanting to learn visual expression
  • Visual thinkers seeking to expand their capacity

Drawing will be our primary form of practice. You do not have to be a skilled scribe or artist – but be prepared to use visual expression as the main method of practice during the program.
