“I have learned that I have a rhythm deep inside me that’s much slower, quiet, shy, and in touch with the sensations of disquieting times. These are times in which to listen. To receive. To reach out and trust that together we can learn to creatively find a way to make worlds. To act together and be different is a potent mystery we must learn to harness. Generative knowing is nomadic, uncovering ways of being and becoming, actualizing potential creatively by poking fissures of light in the territory beneath living experience.” – Aliki Nicolaides
In this session, Aliki Nicolaides and George Koulaouzides will engage in conversation about Aliki’s recently published book, Generative Knowing: Principles, Methods, and Dispositions of an Emerging Adult Learning Theory, with time and space for participants to digest and discuss in breakout groups what they are hearing, learning and experiencing.
