In a Dance with Word — 2024 Conference Theme
When Word emerges from Being it is an expression of a created self. It evokes a response, elicits participation, creating a dance with the world. There’s an abundance of resources including all time and space. Our commitments occur as natural, necessary and achievable.
When we make commitments in order to be accepted, get by, look good, or to fix the world and anything that’s wrong in it, we turn the world against us. Such commitments often take on a note of being contrived, manipulative and unfulfilling. When we notice we are no longer empowered by our commitments, the opportunity arises to return to the dance with Word and what really matters to us.
Word expressed from Being ignites an original created Self, ongoingly. Engagement is natural; action is enlivening and fulfilling. Word arising from Being is an answer to what is wanted and needed, and what we will do, be or have (almost) anything to realize.
We invite you to play a part in the 2024 Conference for Global Transformation by submitting a journal paper, workshop proposal, work of art, collaborative video, report from the field, or poster proposal based upon what you continue to discover and create, while fulfilling on your commitments, in a dance with Word.
