  • Sitting in the “Fire” 

  • [author:-  Professor and Leading-Facilitator Arnold Mindell]
    “To those who want sustainable communities and organisations my advice is :  begin by being humble.”
    “Go ‘back to school'”.
    “Learn awareness [ing]”.
    “Learn about ‘rank‘”.
    “You will save yourself and your community a lot of pain.”

  • [ jm:- “Rank” in the ‘composite’ sense-on-the-ground, of
    Ability (ies);

    and of “WorldLiving experience(s);

  • “Creating freedom, community, and viable relationships – has its “price”.
    It costs time and courage to learn how to “sit in the fire” of diversity.

    It means staying centered in the heat of trouble.
    It demands that we learn about small and large organisations, open city forums and tense street scenes. “.

  • The new worldwork paradigm offers us a number of fresh perspectives :
  • Chaos 

  • Learning 

  • Open-Heart 

  • Self-Knowledge   

  • The Unknown     

kindly ‘stay-tuned’ as we now proceed in further ‘little stages’


(1)   Chaos

“In worldwork, conflict and moments of chaos are valued within group-process
because these can quickly create a sense of community and a lasting organisation.”


(2) Learning

“Worldwork expects conflict to be our most exciting teacher.”


(3)  Open-Heart

“Worldwork relies on heartfulness in order to’sit in the fire of conflict and not be burned.
Worldwork uses the “fire’s” heat to create community.”


(4)  Self-Knowledge

“Worldwork stresses that we ourselves are part of every conflict around us.”


(5) The Unknown

“Worldwork acknowledges that sustainable community has always been based on respect for the unknown.”
