Sharing and building Solution Focused practice in organisations

I recently read that there is an upcoming workshop, organized by the Berkana
Institute (, that may be of interest to the members of
this group:


The Art of Humans Being -- Repatterning Ourselves, Our Work, and Our Communities in the New Story
A Learning Retreat for Activating and Practicing Next Ways to Partner in Collective Transformation
July 29 - August 1, 2010
Essex Conference Center and Retreat
Essex, Massachusetts


Key questions that will be explored at the workshop include:


How will we as ¡°humans being¡± repattern ourselves to create and activate the new story?
What can we hear when we welcome the sacred heart of nature to hold us as we work in chaotic fields?
What calls through us to be birthed at scale in this time?
How might the ¡®power of place¡¯ reveal to us some keys to our repatterning?
What could our practice of presence and deep listening help to birth now?
What happens when we work with commitment to beauty?
How can we begin to live the new story in our relationship to money?
What could we next be present to in a new story that serves ourselves, each other, our communities and the planet?
What do we just know is ours to do in this time?

If a child were to read this announcement (s)he would not be able to easily comprehend because some of the questions may be verbose or complex.

How can we simplify each question using a SF manner when one encounters the above "mega" questions?


This is my food for thought for the day so that I can start to enrich my conversation with SF-questions and hear the answers.

I received feedback that the question that I was posing was unclear?

If a child were to read some of the questions that will be covered in the workshop, (s)he may not be able to compehend easily and would request clarification or simplification?

Is there an SF way to simplify a subset of these questions. A response that I would expect to see from this forum is feedback on each question.

If I am still not making sense, then you can disregard my request. Apologize in advance since I don't want to appear impolite.







Jumpstart into Solution Focus

You want to learn more about "Solution Focus"?

You prefer a "step by step" introduction instead to start with reading some
voluminous books?

You would appreciate to have a complete "helicopter view" on SF after the first step…
