On September 11, 2014, I hosted a “Dinner & Facilitated Conversation” at a private home in Fruitvale, California. Ten people attended, a diverse smattering of friends and colleagues, with gender fairly evenly represented. In retrospect, I realize now that being both the caterer and speaker for my own event was a bit overambitious. Thankfully for the evening, I had some help and was able to manage in all the various set-up preparations. It was an amazing first experience, and definitely gave me a taste of something which I could further enhance in terms of creating a bigger and deeper container for taking in the partnership vision. In terms of my next steps as a conversation leader, I would like to plan another presentation in conjunction with a local activist community/group, ideally one which may incorporate Partnership ideals but in need of more self-reflection upon how to completely embody Partnership principles in their work space and policies. I would also try to make the presentation not just a “talk” but an “experience” of a vision, utilizing games and exercises as shared by other members of my cohort.
