After brief introductions from Robert MacKay, Diana Hughes and James Brian, and following the "Open Space" protocol, participants were invited to announce themes they wished to explore, in the context of the RSCT's future. These initiative takers then wrote the name of their theme on a flip-chart sheet and took it to a corner of the room.
Once all the themes had been announced, people who were also interested in exploring a topic, joined the group of their choice, and a good half hour was spent in these groups exchanging views and jotting down bullet points. Some people moved around from group to group while others stayed with the same group all throughout.
After the half-hour brainstorming session was up, one representative from each group presented to the larger group a brief summary of what their group had come up with. In the photo above, Elisa Vander Hout presents the work of the Anthroposophical Hubs group.
