On the Nature of Dialogue

          * Dialogue starts from a willingness to be tentative about what you know.
* The focus of dialogue is on what is, rather than on ideas and opinions.
          * You can participate by verbally or silently sharing perceptions.
          * Dialogue is letting the issue unfold in affection and mutual respect.
          * When a reaction arises, neither suppress it nor defend it, but suspend it in the mind and in the group, keeping it constantly available for observation and questioning.
          * Dialogue is being together and seeing together in an unfolding relationship.
