Open Space as artistry…

Wendy Farmer O’Neill has posted this to the Open Space Sangha:

So i am offering this up to you all for consideration. The facilitator as Artist. Artist in the creative sense and Artist in the alchemical sense as well–taking the common stuff of the Now, that which Is, and with Artful intent mixing it in the crucible of chaos. Then dancing on the edge of the feather of uncertainty, with only the lodestone of faith in those present as a guide, and gently holding the energetic flame beneath until something new emerges.

This is a wonderful image, taking the stuff that is, the common elements, mixing in a crucible (called chaos yet!) and bringing forth precious things. As always, the people are the precious ones.
