Presencing (blending Presence and Sensing) is the capacity to operate from the source of one’s highest future possibility, in the Now – an intentional realisation of the present through active dialogue with the emerging future.
Julie Arts, from the Presencing Institute, will share elements of Theory U, a framework for profound innovation developed to allow individuals, organizations and communities to address their most pressing challenges.
Theory U, as an awareness-based method for transformation, is inspired by the wisdom and experience of many scientists, artists and spiritual lineages, including David Bohm, Francisco Varela, Henri Bortoft, and others.
The Practice is both highly systemic and deeply personal – most essential is the individual and collective capacity for deep listening, generative dialogue and sensemaking, as we learn to allow the future to emerge through us. As Martin Buber put it, “the future stands in need of you in order to be born”. Or as David Bohm said: “The whole is present in the parts; separation without separateness.”
The Presencing Institute was founded in 2006 by MIT Sloan School of Management Senior Lecturer Dr C. Otto Scharmer and colleagues, to create an action research platform at the intersection of science, consciousness, and profound social and systems change.
This online presentation will be followed by discussion and Q&A.
