The story of an encounter
The world café creates an atmosphere of dialogue and collective wisdom, it is collective wisdom by its own virtue. Reflecting a situation of critical encounters in their life the participants, in dialogue with others, generate cognitions, find answers to tantalizing questions and ways of healing.
To reflect feelings of alienation in a challenging encounter, to scout out emotional barriers and to be stimulated, in dialogue with others, to overcome them and to find ways of healing.
In changing discussion groups participants reflect encounters they experienced as distressing or discomposing. They get a better understanding of what makes them feel familiar with others or what estranges them.
They explore their emotional barriers and learn, by openly exchanging their experience, to better understand their confusions, and, in a common effort, they try to find ways to overcome and to heal them.
This common effort in networking groups creates collective wisdom and makes participants open for actively participating in the challenging conference agenda.
