Session Details – 2020
Perception is in context.
This session is an invitation to revisit familiar ideas like patterns, a difference that makes a difference, logical types, ecology, purpose and so on in the original Batesonian context.
The art of discerning the snow fox in the tundra, the moose behind the trees, the rattle snake in the desert.
To explore through arts, music, poetry and of course, metaphors. Through multiple modalities, observing the observer and mutual learning. An invitation to the concert of Living Systems.
To linger in Bateson’s idea of Mind.
