Shapeshift a prominent story through accessing the wisdom of your body and your inner knowing. Apply ChancesToChange as a way of living. The Corona virus is our prominent story at this moment. It affects all of us locally and globally, it also affects our sourcing gathering here in the South of France with the ChancesToChange community. ChancesToChange is a wildly original board game and exists since December 2016. The board game serves as a doorway to wake up and live your life to the fullest. Since its creation we play everything with regard to our organisation into existence. In this article we first have a look at the prominent story of the Corona virus. Afterwards we take  you on a journey while we play the ChancesToChange board game. You receive insights in what happens when a player throws a red dot and when a player throws a blue dot. What is the prominent story of the Corona virus? The prominent story of the Corona virus is that it is a threat for individuals, communities, countries and the economy. The information we daily receive is about the numbers of people affected in each country, about the speed of the spreading of the infection and how it affects us globally. The Corona virus does not seem to make any difference between good or bad, colour, race, beliefs, ethnicity, wealth. Our collective answer is a combination of actions in an attempt to try treating the symptoms of the outbreak on an individual and global level. We try to find a vaccin against the virus or find all kind of alternative procedures to strengthen our immune system. We try to prevent the spreading of the virus by locking down villages and cities, even locking down countries. We fight, we protect, we separate, we are afraid. The most important ingredient of the prominent story is fear. Fear to become ill, fear to die. Fear that our economy will suffer, fear that are lives will be disrupted. Fear unites us globally these days and is the reason we exclude and separate our self and others to a fascinating extend.  Playing the ChancesToChange board game and meeting the corona virus Whatever happens to and around us always affects the game. So does the story of the Corona virus. This article shares some of the extraordinary insights and fascinating possibilities we receive as we play. We are all somewhere on the board and we play at this moment using both dice, a numbered one and a coloured one. The numbered one allows us to move on the board and the coloured one adds specific instructions depending on the colour we throw. A player throws a red dot The image shows you the instructions we follow. We go into silence and we connect with our body. We sense and we listen. Our body is wise and so much...

THE MANIFESTATION OF A WILDLY ORIGINAL BOARD GAME

Posted by on Sep 15, 2017 in Chances to change

You play with two dice and journey through a theory of everything to find your place in all of life and to discover how to live your life to the fullest. This is the story of how everything I have done in my life has coalesced into the creation of a platform for the emergence of the “ChancesToChange board game”. This game was birthed in December 2016. Guest House Facilitation practice manifesting as a U wave. A three-dimensional view of the Life Pulse. Adding deep human aspects to the infinity symbol. Flipping the orientation of the infinity symbol. Theory U shape-shifts into an infinity symbol. A specific colour code in alignment with the emerging knowledge. A two-dimensional board emerges.   Guest House Facilitation practice manifesting as a U wave Guest House Facilitation is a complex, interconnected and continuously changing practice, it is fluid and smart-flexible. It is a process of experiencing which can only be expressed in words afterwards. The Guest House Facilitation mission is to listen to all voices, even to the whispers. The main ingredients of Guest House Facilitation are Theory U and the Life Pulse Theory U (top of the picture above) has been developed by Otto Scharmer and his team, it is a change management method where leaders move through a process of inner knowing and social innovation. Theory U is a framework indeed a method and also a way of being. The Life Pulse (bottom left in the picture above) is a cosmic principle with different phases: stasis (red), contraction (green), stasis (red), expansion (blue). Stasis or pause is stillness and emptiness. It is an inward movement connecting with our inner being. Contraction is an outward movement where we enter into relationship with our personality. Expansion is an outward movement, where we enter into relationship with the collective field. The first representations of the Life Pulse and the Theory U during our Guest House Facilitation gatherings were U forms with waves (picture above on the right). The U process is what happens as Guest House Facilitation (GHF) unfolds. The U process transforms and shape-shifts GHF and vice versa. We create space for this fascinating and wonderful process through graciously bringing our attention to the cosmic principle of the Life Pulse.   A three-dimensional view of the Life Pulse  Panarchy is the study of the interactions between economic growth and human development and how they depend on ecosystems and institutions. In a step-by-step process by adding the ingredient of Panarchy to the Life Pulse, the Life Pulse naturally emerged as an infinity symbol (April 2016). Contraction (green) and expansion (blue) become loops and both meet in the middle where the phases of stasis (red) are superimposed. The emergence of the Life Pulse as an infinity symbol happened very quickly and from that moment on, the infinity symbol became an integral part of the Guest House...
