Richard and Mago Bill

My name is Richard, Richard Sheehan, Richard C. Sheehan, Richard Carroll Sheehan. I am a U.S. citizen living in Colombia.
Mago Bill was sometimes called M. William Sheehan. He was a Sheehan and a Carroll. I may have some words to say about him latter.
Although I have some passion for governance this Mago Bill blog may best be call a no niche or a multi niche blog.
Topics you may expect to see here may briefly named as>
history, prehistory, world history, Ireland, Colombia, dialogue, social dialogue, cultural dialogue, writing, politics, governance, and some topics best unnamed at this time.
In time I hope to make Mago Bill, the blog, more and more interactive.
Hello and Welcome!

Mago Bill Way of Dialogue

You will begin to learn about Mago Bill as I learn to get this blog working. Here at the blog we have learned of certain interests of ours. High among those interests is a certain kind of dialogue practice and we find we have a lot to say it. Below you can find some of that which our dialogue practice is an about about what is not.

Dialogue practice is not:

~ a place to make a particular point prevail.

~ a debate or discussion.

~ an attempt to make points.

~ a game to win or lose.

Our dialogue practice is a way:

~ to peace and good-will.

~ for us to see our words as gifts.

~ to keep a stream of meaning flowing among us.

~ to an activity which helps us to be us.

~ through the meaning of word.

~ to an honest, supportive activity.

~ to greater awareness and enhanced consciousness.

~ to hone our listening skills.

~ to develop new speaking skills,

~ to practice effective methods of communication.

~ to cultural preservation, growth, and creativity.

~ of making a healthy, effective society more probable.

~ to meet interesting people.

~ of putting honest thoughts on the table where we can look at them and begin to find their meaning.

~ to practice a “second” language.

~ of being heard.

~ of finding pleasure in speaking up.

~ to understanding among us and within us.

~ to satisfying relationship.

~ to exchange idea and opinion.

~ to share experience.

~ to more effective communication outside the group.

According to David Bohm, dialogue practice is:

~ participating in a flow of meaning between us, through us, and among us.

~ an activity out of which emerges new and renewed understanding.

~ an activity which helps us to be an us.
