He calls this the deep democracy of open forums, where all voices, thoughts, and feelings are aired freely . Since 1992, one of Mindell's prime interests has been the bringing of deeper awareness to group conflicts.

He calls this the deep democracy of open forums, where all voices, thoughts, and feelings are aired freely, especially the ones nobody wants to hear. Conflict work without reference to altered states of consciousness is like a flu shot for someone in a manic or depressed state of consciousness. The key is becoming aware of it.

Most of us are terrified of conflict, says Arnold Mindell, PhD, author of fifteen books and internationally recognized for his innovative synthesis of Jungian therapy, dreams, and bodywork. But we needn't be. His burning passion is to create groups and organizations where everyone looks forward to group processes instead of fearing them. He calls this the deep democracy of open forums, where all voices, thoughts, and feelings are aired freely, especially the ones nobody wants to hear.

Since 1992, one of Mindell's prime interests has been the bringing of deeper awareness to group conflicts. Conflict work without reference to altered states of consciousness is like a flu shot for someone in a manic or depressed state of consciousness. Most group and social problems cannot be well facilitated or resolved without access to the dreamlike and mystical atmosphere in the background. The key is becoming aware of it.

Mindell introduces a new paradigm for working in groups, from 3 to 3,000, based on awareness of the flow of signals and events. You can take the subtlest of signals indicating the onset of emotions such as fear, anger, hopelessness, and other altered states, and use them to transform seemingly impossible problems into uplifting community experiences.

As Mindell explains, "I share how everyone--people in schools and organizations, communities and governments--can use inner experiences, dreaming, and mysticism, in conjunction with real methods of conflict management, to produce lively, more sustainable, conscious communities."

  • Author and facilitator of workshops and conferences worldwide, Mindell and his wife Amy are particularly skilled in dealing with conflicts that block community. Mindell notes that most of us are terrified of conflict, but we needn't be. He imagines a world where everyone looks forward to group processes dealing with conflict. By "deep democracy" he means that all voices, thoughts, and feelings are aired freely, especially the ones nobody wants to hear. His stories from meetings in global hot spots (such as in Dublin with representatives from Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland) are intense. The facilitator must be aware of and be willing to acknowledge his/her own feelings, must pay attention to subtle signals in people's bodies and words, and must trust that the process will allow the anger to surface. The anger is usually followed by grief and often by reconciliation.

    The book includes keys to breaking through impasse in any situation as well as instructive and inspiring stories of conflict resolution.

  • Arnold Mindell together with his wife and partner Amy are international treasures!

    I am amazed that to date in this year 2010 there has been only one review of this remarkable book, The Deep Democracy of Open Forums, which was published 8 long years ago in 2002. I first became aware of it just last summer (2009), as well as of a long list of other equally remarkable books by Arny and Amy. I second the first reviewer's remarks!

    In reading aloud the Kindle version preface to my wife one morning last summer to get an idea of its purpose and scope, we were so impressed and excited by it that we resolved to send copies to friends and family in anticipation of lively discussions. Alas, that is where we got stuck! The Amazon.com price in summer 2009 for the paperback version was prohibitive! So, I focused on other Mindell books before returning to Open Forums. However, I must have misread this number back then, because today it is altogether affordable.

    In any case this book contains a model for creating true community and dealing with conflicts that block it. I realized that I had been looking for something like this for decades! It has given us here in Los Alamos a vision for an Open Forum, which is currently being planned for spring 2011. This notorious town is noted for its invention of The Bomb, which led historian Garry Wills to publish Bomb Power this year. Now, with Mindell's model, we have a means of transforming this horrid legacy into something creative. Our community would like this place to be known as the town "Where Discoveries are Made". If we manage to discipline ourselves well enough to apply Mindell's wisdom and practical suggestions, this transformation could become a reality to silence the echo of the old Manhattan Project.

    The Deep Democracy of Open Forums is a book for any community large or small, which must deal with conflicts of any kind.

  • My go to manual for conducting a public meeting.

  • This book is probably the best single resource on deep democracy, though it is couched in the context of creating the semi-structured open forum, as opposed to deep democracy world work or large group process. The open forum is more accessible in an organizational context than is large group process work, so it has a different range of applicability. Readers might also be interested in Leader as Martial Artist and multiple other books that describe the experience of group process, like Sitting in the Fire.

  • What a load of pretentious bougie bull $#I+ that tries too hard to get offended.

  • Fantastic book for facilitators of all stripes

  • no practical application offered

  • Super-guide for facilitators!
