Guy Sengstock: Circling for Collective Intelligence

This is part of Rebel Wisdom's series on Collective Intelligence, see the intro film for more: https://youtu.be/6PldNSp3tpU

The growing complexity of the world is such that no single mind can hope to comprehend it - so we need to find a form of collective intelligence. Twenty years ago, Guy Sengstock spontaneously invented a practice that came to be known as Circling. He describes it as a "yoga of deep transformational conversations". In this conversation with Rebel Wisdom's David Fuller, they explore the emergent conversation that Rebel Wisdom has been tracking, and how this practice of Circling applies to it.

Making Sense of Sensemaking: Schmachtenberger, Wheal, Hall

This three-way emergent conversation is unlike anything we've released before. It features three of the world's foremost systems thinkers and futurists - Jordan Hall, Daniel Schmachtenberger and Jamie Wheal - and has been by far our most popular members-only film. We're now releasing it on the main channel as part of our Collective Intelligence Series.

What is decentralised collective intelligence and how do we create it? Why does 'sensemaking' matter so much right now? What is coherence and how can we develop it? Take a deep dive with Hall, Wheal and Schmachtenberger into these questions and many more.

The other films in the series include a trialogue between Jordan (Green)Hall, Jamie Wheal and Daniel Schmachtenberger, 'Making Sense of Sensemaking' (Premiere on 4 September): https://youtu.be/0xSUw_QhJkc

Daniel Schmachtenberger: The War on Sensemaking

This is an audio version of The War on Sensemaking, Daniel Schmachtenberger which was published on the Rebel Wisdom YouTube site on August 19th 2019. 

What can we trust? Why is the 'information ecology' so damaged, and what would it take to make it healthy? This is a fundamental question, because without good sensemaking, we cannot even begin to act in the world. It is also a central concern in what many are calling the "meaning crisis", because what is meaningful is connected to what is real. Daniel Schmachtenberger is an evolutionary philosopher - his central interest is civilization design: developing new capacities for sense-making and choice-making, individually and collectively, to support conscious sustainable evolution.
