Generative Communication unlocks being human to generate mutual commitments and shared meaning.

Cultivating a generative mindset transforms our relationship to reality. We become co-creators, expanding openness and possibility.

These FIVE PATHWAYS support cultivating generative conversations.

Foster Reflective Awareness

More than self-reflection, a reflective mindset arises from relaxed awareness to be intentional rather than reactive.

  • Develop spaciousness for relaxed awareness to navigate the tension between confusion and clarity.

  • Discern distractions that enable habitual reflexivity and constrain deeper understanding.

  • Appreciate unlearning/letting go dynamic to develop grounding and create space.

Acknowledge Responsibility

We embrace responsibility for our intentions and reactions and for the power of our word to co-create our world.

  • Embrace your intentions, speaking, and listening; claim your past, present, and possibility that shapes thoughts, feelings, responses, and results.

  • Recognize and dissolve defensive, avoidance, and survival strategies that constrain action.

  • Strengthen integrity to produce authentic agreements.

Embrace Complexity

With space for creative thinking, we learn to dance with and discern the undivided flow of life.

  • Probe evidence, conditions, and concerns that disclose an interdependent view of situations.

  • Recognize limitations and fragmentation that constrain change/flow.

  • Develop critical and creative thinking to realize greater integration and freedom.

Invite Inquiry

With inventive questioning and puzzling, we discover creative human faculties that transform our perceptions and understanding.

  • Practice ontological humility to question views and surface assumptions that develop insight and new perspectives.

  • Discern expectations, attachments, deeply held positions, and fixed beliefs that constrain listening.

  • Develop space for receptivity to realize the undivided flow of life.

Grant Being

Through distinctions in language, we discover a radically different way of seeing and being.

  • Cultivate openness to be with the unknown and cultivate possibility.

  • Discern resistance and blind spots that constrain seeing possibility.

  • Listen from potential to engage in co-creation.

WHAT HAPPENS IN THE GENERATIVE PROCESS?

Generativity brings forth distinctions from the undivided flow of life. 

1. We learn from the body in motion by connecting with the innate wisdom of the somatic mind.

2. We find new paths to presencing by creating internal space for physical, emotional, mental, and energetic experiences.

3. We become aware of a whole intelligence when we open ourselves to possibility and curiosity.

4. We learn to take the space to awaken our voice.

5. We train the discursive mind to cultivate intention and use language to find the words that give value to the experience of the body.

6. We expand our possibilities for responding in the face of daily challenges.

7. We experience grounding and openness to empower creative flow.

8. We identify, integrate, and transcend the positions in our complex identity.

Generativity means giving birth to something, and that something emerges from this conversation.

You feel connected, more understood, seen, heard, and experienced. You’ve been recreated beyond any label or concept – acknowledged as a legitimate being. That is generative communication.

E-BOOK

“Unlike descriptive language, which offers evidence for its claims, generative language offers no evidence, only authority—creating from nothing, from no evidence— spoken from the depths of responsibility and integrity.
