What it takes is a social field and a social space that facilitates a turn, a bending of our beam of observation back onto ourselves, back onto its source.
The bending of the beam of observation is called reflection when it happens as a mental process. It’s called empathy or compassion
when it happens as a process that activates the intelligence of our heart. And it’s called entrepreneurship, or love, or collective action when it happens as a process that activates our deepest capacity to create.

What I saw at the Forum was the beginning of a collective opening process on all three of these levels:
opening the mind (reflection), the heart (compassion) and the will (creative core).
When that opening happens, we still have the same problems, but we can approach them more in more present, more connected, and more co-creative ways.
