Our first workshop! Cultivating Competence in Curiosity

We held our very first workshop, Cultivating Competence in Curiosity, on October 1 – 2, 2015.  A full-scale test run you could say.  Our first cohort were fantastically engaged and engaging, smart, honest and generous, and we were just plain lucky.  Thanks folks!!

We learned a great deal from our session, and will modify a number of the elements in the workshop based on our own experiences, and from the feedback we received.  The workshop also elicited questions which we look forward to following up on; ‘following the question’, which is the basic dynamism of curiosity.  One was about the role of vulnerability in curiosity, and another was about how the word ‘educe’ had transitioned from meaning the discovery of intrinsic knowledge or potential, to the filling up of a person with information, as if they are an empty vessel.
