Drawing on the arts and contemplative traditions, Social Presencing Theater brings to the surface a clearer sense of the relationships, hidden dynamics, and emerging possibilities inherent in a team, organization or larger system. It allows co-creators in a given system to gain insight into the current situation, seeing potential opportunities for change. It sets the ground for creative collective action. "Theater" here denotes an empty stage or a blank canvas where the different aspects and roles of the system can be embodied. In that space, the roles can interact in fresh and creative ways to reveal emerging possibilities hidden in the system. It is "the art of making a true move."

This course is an introduction and does not require any pre-requisites.

What this program will provide

Social Presencing Theater is a series of embodiment practices that develop capacity for awareness-based engagement in social and organisational transformation (grounded in Theory U framework).

Participants will learn the basic Social Presencing Theater practices which invite:

  • Experiencing the wisdom of embodied presence
  • Seeing and sensing the larger systems in which we live and work
  • Cultivating our social field of relationship in family, teams, organisations and communities
  • Building action confidence to create new solutions.
