Dancing with Shiva

I’ve written about Open Space Technology before in this post. The concept rocked my world and I want everybody to know about it.

Since the, I’ve done some more reading on Harrison Owen’s website, http://www.openspaceworld.com/. Within it, you’ll find all sorts of great things to read. I highly recommend Wave Riders¬†as a start.

What I would like to share with you today is a talk that Owen gave at an independently organized TED conference back in 2013. The talk embodies much of the philosophy Owen has developed over his 30 years of conducting his “open space experiment.” Please sit back and enjoy this video. I hope it challenges you to stop trying so hard to take charge of the wave and to start surfing it!
