The April 2015 gathering will be an online video conference
on Saturday, April 25th, 9:00 AM – 10:30 AM (Pacific Time)
(the 4th Saturday of the month).
Is it possible to look at ourselves non-analytically and therefore observe without the me observing? Is it possible to look at life with all its questions, with all its issues, which is tremendously complex, to look at it not as a problem, but to observe it clearly, without bias, without coming to some conclusion which will then dictate your observation?
Please register for the event below.
Here is an FAQ on the nature of the gathering, and details on how to get setup for the video conference.
What is the purpose of THE GLOBALITÉ CAFÉ?
To have a dialogue on global topics in a quest for the Truth of the matter.
To allow solutions to emerge (if they do) from that position of clarity.
To experiment with Truth.
What is the nature of the dialogue?
There is no leader or moderator.
You may submit topics for discussion by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Topics will be put up for a vote before or at the start of the dialogue.
We may go through more than one topic if the group so wishes.
Some Suggestions on the Nature of Dialogue from the Krishnamurti Foundation of America:
* Dialogue starts from a willingness to be tentative about what you know
* The focus of dialogue is on what is rather than on ideas and opinions
* You can participate by verbally or silently sharing perceptions
* Dialogue is letting the issue unfold in affection and mutual respect
* When a reaction arises, neither suppress it nor defend it, but suspend it in the mind and in the group, keeping it constantly available for observation and questioning
* Dialogue is being together and seeing together in an unfolding relationship
* To go beyond opinions, biases, judgements, theories, and learn to look at what is. While the topics hover around global issues, the process of dialogue tends to be about raising our own awareness. And awareness in turn often leads to conscious evolution, towards collective excellence of humanity
* While the dialogue will not start out with a set goal, if solutions emerge organically, we shall strive to take them forward and implement them in tangible ways
