Enlivening Edge Community Conversations


Some participants have said:

“How is it that we weave so much love into the space?” –  Alexandra Pilavachi

“The We is the One.” – Mila Aliana

“… the new and emergent in us is like a fawn coming down to drink at the pond; it needs a lot of care, respect, and a deep listening if we’re to be witnesses.” – Anna Betz

Such sentiments are like others quoted in EE Magazine columns by Andrew Carter MacDonald devoted to reflections on the conversations. Everyone who shows up is filled with deep appreciation, and has helped the conversations evolve to their current forms.

What would it be like for you to engage in a meaningful and different live conversation around Reinventing Organizations—and other movements into new consciousness in organizations—a conversation to lift your spirits, inspire you to a new imagination, make your heart sing, and leave you feeling part of something greater than yourself?

Enlivening Edge invites you to join with others who are having such conversations. While there are many wonderful threads of thoughts posted in our Facebook community, we have co-created a sacred, safe place for realtime, face-to-face dialogues via video conferencing, which can go deeper than written words on a screen. The explorations are facilitated for depth and personal meaningfulness.

Over 1050 participants have signed up for these conversations. Callers from around the world show up for each conversation. Many report their needs for sharing, being heard, having “Teal” conversations, belonging, and networking are amply being met. Synergies are abounding and many cooperative projects have been created.

Two Conversations Each Month

The first Thursday of each month is “Stories from the Enlivened Edge.” One participant shares their story of an experience in co-creating the next stage of consciousness in organizations, and everyone shares feelings and insights about their similar experiences, in the 90-minute conversation.

The third Thursday of each month is “Connecting for Synergy.” For two hours we as a group contemplate two deep questions about inner and outer aspects of our work as change-makers.

Our Intention

Our shared intention for co-creating a sacred space for this online gathering is:

  • Providing a safe place to engage with others and grow deeper connections, a sense of belonging, personal empowerment, and wholeness
  • Providing an environment for networking and collaboration
  • Offering support to people who are actively exploring or practicing or interested in Teal consciousness, Reinventing Organizations, or next-stage organizations: a place to rest, de-stress, and receive nurturance and encouragement
  • Co-creating an environment of inspiration, hope, contribution, and joy
  • Facilitating an awareness of the social ecosystem of the movement for change, which we are a part of, for greater collective impact.

Call Format

You do not need to attend all of the conversations; each stands on its own. However, by attending more, you are able to benefit more from our continuing explorations.

We use the Zoom video-conferencing platform, so we can break into small groups to have more intimate portions of the conversations.

How to Participate

To be notified in advance about each call and receive access information and other communications from time to time about EE Community Conversations, go here and sign up. If you do not have Zoom, the notification will tell you how to set it up (for free), which takes only a minute or two.

All Enlivening Edge Community Conversations take place at 10 AM US-Pacific, and—depending on the time of year—6 PM UK, 7 PM CET. There is no charge to participate.

The hosting team is Will Van Inwagen, Doug Breitbart, and Alia Aurami. We know your time in the calls will be inspiring and valuable!
