When we turn to face outside the circle

Opening space means that whatever happens happens, whoever engages engages, and when we gather and disperse is the right time. The true open space, in Buber’s terms, would be the going out into the community from the meeting to meet others and meet more, not the gathering itself. This is how we meet the world and enlarge it. The gathering alone can bend in upon itself becoming egoic, small-group-self-centered, and closing up. When we turn to face out from the circle, this is the opening.

What does it mean to us—an ever more inclusive us—to open space?
