The US Academy of Professional Dialogue
Join us in a participative webinar with Peter Garrett author of
David Bohm’s Ontology: The Implicate Order
June 19, 2020
12-2:00 pm EDT
In David Bohm’s Ontology: The Implicate Order, Peter Garrett reflects on his long friendship with Bohm and what they were trying to create together through the practice of dialogue. He takes us back to the 1980s with the first ideas of how dialogue might improve what Bohm was viewing as the fragmentary thinking that was damaging the world.
Peter and Bohm experimented with “dialogue weekends” for several years and in several countries, believing that the Implicate Order that had made a breakthrough in theoretical physics was applicable to human interaction. After Bohm’s death Peter has carried on their work in prison systems and multi-national companies and now with the founding of the Academy of Professional Dialogue.
A Participative Webinar
During the webinar the cohosts, Nancy Dixon and Linda Ellinor, will interview Peter to provide an overview of his thinking. We will then move participants into small groups for reflections on Peter’s interview and how his experience has meaning in our lives and work with Dialogue. To close our time we’ll come back together with questions and reflections from our small groups.
