The Open Space of Civilizations, Jordan Festival Program

Dear friends and colleagues,


We would like to invite you to an international festival of creativity and relaxation, the Journey to Jordan, to be held using the Open Space format. From time to time we find ourselves at a crossroads, faced with personal and professional opportunities for growth. This event will no doubt make it possible to see how to find to overcome personal and organizational challenges.


In this time of so-called crisis it is important to stop for a moment and think- in a spirit of creativity - to reflect on what weve been done. It is important to develop a broad view of ones future, to uncover new ideas for developing ones business using the collective knowledge of the group. Jordan is a crossroads for many civilizations. It is an historic power spot and bears the accumulated energy of many cultures and peoples.


People from many cultures have sought to come here. Each person has made their own journey to Jordan. In this place of commerce and cross-cultural communication, in this land of the beginnings of different spiritual traditions of contemporary man, we are apt to see the world in a special way. We discover new sources of inner strength, we develop a different inner vision. We come to see with fresh eyes our habitual patterns. And we develop creative plans for success in work and life.


Artist and writer Lev Zhemchuzhnikov encountered legends of live and dead water in the Jordan River Valley. These were stories of how water transformed the body and soul of man. The live flow of the Jordan River with the waters of the Dead Sea he describes as a merging of life with death. Participants of the Journey to Jordan Festival will have an opportunity to visit the baptism site of Jesus Christ, experience the cosmic weightlessness of the water of the Dead Sea, experience the healing qualities of live and dead water, and return home inspired and with expanded awareness.


The Festival program makes it possible to enjoy the natural surroundings, the cultural sites of interest, and discuss personal and professional issues, challenges, and opportunities all at the same time. The hopes and expectations of all participants who have made a conscious choice to go on this journey to Jordan in November in the off-peak season will be met. Each participant will be able to add to the agenda for discussion those items of any interest and share their knowledge. Everyone will be able to make a professional contribution towards meeting the aims of the Festival. We all will have the opportunity to collaborate in developing the program.


The principle of openness which guided participation in the Open Space for Business and Investment Conference in Jordan in 2007 () will be essential to this event too.


Anyone interested in this Festival is welcome to travel virtually to this historical and biblical places and prepare oneself mentally for this event by clicking here and here.


The festival will take place from 13 to 20 November 2009 in Jordan.


Open some new space within yourself in the search for ideas and success.
