To support our community of compassionate systems practitioners, the Center for Systems Awareness is hosting a series of online check-in and practice sessions to continue to build our understanding of the compassionate systems tools and to support one another with our developing practice. These virtual convenings are open for any Compassionate Systems workshops Alumni. Each focuses on one of the core tools and frameworks and feature reflections from one of our Master Practitioners, as well as short time for practice. Our hope is that participants will have the opportunity to re-connect, to deepen their understanding of the compassionate systems tools, and better understand what is involved in using the tools in realistic settings, together with compassionate practitioners from around the world. We will launch this series with a session on the Wellbeing Framework which helps to frame the context for all of the compassionate systems tools and practices.
We completed the first session on April 28th with a number of global attendees! Mette and Peter led us through the framework and the practices so masterfully, and the group conversation showed that many of them had made an immediate connection to the topic of "Well-being", and to one another. The series will continue with weekly sessions each highlighting a different compassionate systems tool and framework.
Future sessions will include the Systems Thinking Iceberg, Generative Social Fields, the Ladder of Inference, Core Systems Leadership Capacities, and Shifting the Burden. As our calls continue participants will get to know many more of our master practitioners and to connect to one another.
