INVITATION

So right now I'm emailing a few of my friends to see if they are interested in a kind of gentle conversation experiment with others. 

It brings together a few movements and vibes of late. The sense of having more open conversations that are a little formatted - enough of a ritual or format to get things going. It's partly about bringing together some wonderful energies of people I've just becomes friends with, or become new and much deeper friends from a distant past. It would extend some of things like my Blackened Wood BBQs, the Brown Paper Bag Group, finding out about women's circles etc. And it would also be a way of marking my birthday.

So what is the idea...?

Luke and ten others.
Eleven elephants.

We have an open conversation. 
There is no agenda. 
But I may offer a few moments of poetry or reflection.
There is nothing set, but we all know we are coing gently and openly together.

We are those that sense the more, in all our different ways, and can allow a greater feeling of not-yet-known and discovering-afresh to happen together.
It's not humans each grappling at a different bit of the elephant of reality.
We are the elephants. 
We are the mostly-yet-known implicit and growing and evolving reality each coming to know some more, of and between us.

We do this at a very open, good-energy cafe.
A cafe which is a social enterprise, helping various people/communities in Aspley.
Cup From Above. Run by Adam.
I will bring my keyboards too. 
So our bodies are attuning to the space in sound.
