From its beginning, the Collective Wisdom Initiative (CWI) has been committed to making visible the study & practice of collective wisdom, in part through inviting a number of 'seed papers' & publishing them on the website.
Seeded Conversations are a natural extension of these 'seed papers', offering an opportunity for deeper interaction within our growing community.
We propose that something “quite else” can happen when a group of people begins to see and contemplate common images & ideas from diverse perspectives and by means of multiple ways of knowing; Seeded Conversations offer a context & medium for this ‘something else’ to happen.
We invite you to participate in this experiment with collective consciousness by reading and listening to what calls to you in these pages and then adding (as you choose) your thoughts and reflections to the emergent curiosity and understanding that is beginning to form there.
The Seeded Conversations are listed alphabetically by topic in the left-hand column for your convenience, and described in more depth below, with the most recently-added conversation appearing at the top.
Seeded Conversations can be found throughout the Collective Wisdom Initiative website wherever you see these little red seeds.
