Observing the (democratic) developments with Clé Burgers and Peter van der Vliet
Following the salon with Herman Wijffels, 'spiralling up or spiraling down', the election results and the dynamics in the Netherlands and the world, a second salon will take place in which we reflect on (democratic) developments.
To observe means to look at what is happening without judgment and opinion. We are used to practicing this for the inner world. You take your thoughts and feelings without being attached to what is happening inside you. Can we also adopt this attitude towards social and political events, situations and developments? That we don't immediately go into solution mode, react, have an opinion, enter the fight, want to be right, stop watching news, etc.
Just observe. Without being attached. What do you see then? What is your perspective from your background, knowledge and experience in life? In this salon we exchange perspectives and share what we observe. From there arises new meaning.
The salon is provided by Clé Burgers, from her background in the field of consciousness development, community worker in neighborhoods of Almere and as a participant in the political constellation: “What does a politics based on unity look like”.
And Peter van der Vliet, from his background in the field of consciousness development, Broedplaats Gooise Meren, 'hot spots' in municipalities and politics, and as a participant in the political constellation: “What does a politics based on unity look like?”.

Organizing from teal – Venwoude
We offer these salons based on the "purpose and principles" of the CHE and in order to make this permanently possible in the future, we ask you to pay a financial contribution from € 7,50 to the salon host.
And also possible, become a donor!
Organized by volunteers for volunteers. And the CHE has costs. From the Chamber of Commerce and the website to wanting to compensate for the time that goes into making connections between parties that enter into collaborations that they could not have dreamed of. To continue to make all this possible, we invite you to become a donor of the CHE. With an automatic transfer of at least € 20,– per month you make our work possible. The Center for Human Emergence NL is recognized as a charity, so your donations are tax deductible.
You can register as a donor by sending an email to Leidje@humanemergence.nl and/or transfer a one-time donation or monthly amount directly to IBAN account number NL51 TRIO 0212 4791 72 in the name of the Center for Human Emergence Foundation in Amsterdam. Incidentally, individual contributions are also very welcome.
You are cordially invited to participate in this salon.
We hope you come!
Cle Burgers, Peter van der Vliet, Peter Luijten
