In late summer of 2020, through the Pari Center, a small group of people began an applied experiment into the nature of David Bohm’s holoflux (see session description for July 22, 2023). Midway through this inquiry, a number of the group formally presented some of their experiences regarding holoflux, rheosoma, and holosoma. These accounts led to the publication of a book, Holoflux: Codex (Pari Publishing, 2022), that carried the inquiry one step further. In this session, the contributors to the book will share some of that work and discuss their creative process. The conversation, however, will not be limited to an artifact (the book), but will also address the ongoing process of engaging with the holoflux experiment. What is the nature of this inquiry? What impact does it have in daily life? What has inspired people to sustain this inquiry? Where does it stand after three years?

Richard Burg – In 2003 I retired from consulting, my fourth career (IT, potter, Continuing Medical Education research). Simple Idea worked with corporate leaders to integrate human values and productivity in a constantly changing environment – engaging with teams and individuals to build relationships within the organization that nurture the humanity in everyone, even as they work together to achieve audacious goals.

In 1990 a friend sent me a transcript of a talk given by David Bohm at MIT. In my organization development practice – focused on changing corporate cultures – group work was a built-in aspect of the process. Bohm’s dialogue experiment was thus enticing, and I discovered a Bohmian dialogue group in the San Francisco Bay Area, which I attended weekly for the next eight years. Stemming from that group, Lee Nichol and I designed a nine-hour, multi-day introduction to Bohm’s experiment at the first National Conference on Dialogue and Deliberation in Washington DC. I have since engaged in dialogue in many different contexts – most recently, like many, in online dialogues, before and during the covid pandemic.

Early on in my dialogue work, I received permission to transcribe the little pamphlet, Dialogue: A Proposal (D. Bohm, D. Factor, and P. Garrett) and post it online via colleagues at MIT. It is still available, in multiple “versions,” some with several addenda/commentaries.

Eva Casey is a freelance artist who works in ceramics, metal, paint media, and graphic design. A detail of her painting “Heliac” is featured as the cover of Holoflux: Codex. Eva formerly taught at Cañada Community College and the Tibetan Nyingma Institute, both in Berkeley, California. She is a mother of two, and a grandmother of two. She lives in Albuquerque, New Mexico with her husband, Lee Nichol.

Sky Hoorne holds a MS in Computer Science from Vrije Universiteit Brussel and attended LUCA School of Arts Ghent. She is a graphic artist, creator of comic strips, and a dedicated scholar of the work of David Bohm. Currently she is focused on ceramic sculptures, drawings, paintings, and on making complex issues digestible to a broader, non-academic public.

Rooted in her life philosophy of ‘active context’/’contexting’, Sky attempts to make ‘inscendental’ works of art, in which the viewer is invited to step into the subject by appealing to their primal imagination and subtle participation. This approach involves free play with clichés, perspectives, and polarities. Despite her background in IT, her main interests include psychology, eastern philosophy, science of mind, no-nonsense metaphysics and kiko/qi gong.


Maria Hvidbak’s formal educational background encompasses a mix of architecture, business psychology, philosophical inter-viewing and existential-phenomenological psychotherapy. While not settling with any professional title or given field of study, Maria is engaged with questions pertaining to “communication,” as understood according to its etymological root sense of “moving together.” Increasingly inspired by what is commonly recognized as an attitude of the artist, seeking into subtleties of philosophy and sports as well as experimenting with creative expressions…all become modes of exploring what can possibly be “moved together” with.

Beth Macy  The common thread weaving through Beth’s career has been change, having been a manager, leader, consultant or participant in organizations experiencing difficult issues: organizations from small to large, private to public, non-profit to profit, health care to oil and gas, local to global. David Bohm’s dialogue has been core to her research, writing, consulting and teaching for nearly three decades. Living in the USA (Texas) she is completing a book on the ideas and individuals who influenced Bohm’s methodology of dialogue.

Hester Reeve is a Reader in Fine Art at Sheffield Hallam University UK. Her practice encompasses live art, drawing, sculpture, poetry, philosophy and ‘dialogue’ (as set out by David Bohm): Art is not viewed straightforwardly as a tool of communication or form of personal expression, but more as a complex kingdom that is continually attempting to establish itself through human thought and action.

Hester’s work has been shown internationally, including at former Randolph Street Gallery Chicago, LIVE Biennale Vancouver, BONE Performance Festival Switzerland, Tate Britain, Yorkshire Sculpture Park, Halle G Vienna and, most recently, Nirox Sculpture Park, South Africa.


Aja Bulla Zamastil is an architectural and landscape architectural designer, public artist, and educator. She works at the intersection of social, ecological, and conceptual systems and everyday experience. As the Creative Director at Watershed Progressive, Aja is responsible for managing and designing resilient landscape projects and educational programs throughout California. As a Lecturer in the landscape architecture and urbanism graduate program at University of Southern California, she leads design studios that address adapting our constructed world to shifting natural and sociocultural forces. Aja’s ongoing research questions our dominant cultural narratives, and explores multiple forms of knowledge formation and co-creation. Her projects explore how we can re-imagine and transform monofunctional systems into resilient socio-ecological cycles that engage and re-enchant everyday experience, promote alternative cultural practices, and uncover latent ecological processes.
