What is Transition? And what happens in the Lounge?
At OpenEdge experience tells us that the more we bring our conscious awareness, the more we can transform. We also know that many of us may be embarked upon change making without understanding what moving from the old to the new story fully means. For OpenEdge, making explicit what is implicit in the old paradigm, is vital in the new paradigm.
OpenEdge Transition Lounge is a place for naming what we are walking towards and for reflecting upon what it means, how it impacts us, and what it asks of us emotionally and skilfully. It is both a space to learn more and a place to stop learning and to rest in. It is a place for being inspired, excited and tuned into our personal and collective capacities to go forward, as well as a place for any despair, anger and overwhelm we may feel.
In the Transition Lounge we can find community in our shared experiences, and community of different experience. It is a place to share yourself in support of others, and to tend to yourself with no expectations.
We offer the Transition Lounge as a place to ready ourselves in these times of transition, a space to come back to throughout our endeavours.
We invite you to rest, recuperate and grow in our Transition Lounge, with OpenEdge's experienced team of scholar-practitioner-explorers!
