An unexpected change took place today: all of us delegates were asked to arrange ourselves around the room according to age –and it caused quite a stir! Then we were invited to a focused conversation in peer groups. We had an interesting time.

We found that perspectives can be remarkably the same and remarkably different across generations as well as cultures. We were reminded to pay attention to recurring themes, but also to listen to the minority and solitary voices.

Each day the delegates from two Units present the symbols they brought to the Gathering from their home-base. These are invariably thought-provoking and entertaining, and the presentations impact on the imagination, emotion and energy of the group in interesting ways. These symbols are featuring as videos on this website and also on Facebook: search for ‘presentation sisters union’.
