Anyone attended an Open Space before?
I haven't. But the concept has always fascinated me since first reading about it over at IshCon. I've always wanted to start some kind of nature awareness school or mentoring program in my area but I wasn't comfortable with calling it a program or school. I don't want to try to come across as some kind of expert with all the answers, or take on a guru like status. I may have found a way around this by "holding space" for themes like: nature awareness, tracking, and defining the problems with civilization. Thank you for sharing this.
So, what does it take to become an effective facilitator to an Open Space gathering?
