Sounds alot like the Quakers approach to decision making, non-hierarchical, consensus based...

Have to say it all sounds quite annoying, but perhaps that's just me being miserable...

Still I think it might be quite amusing to apply the 4 principles to the next TCC meeting.

This report on a recent Open Space event in London gives a flavor of what it can be like. It's definitely not the slow, quiet, polite consensus process of the Quakers which (tho I love 'em) sometimes bores me out of my skull. http://arts.guardian.co.uk/theatre/drama/story/0,,2001828,00.html

There is often a kind of consensus that gets reached by the end of a good Open Space event - enough to inspire participants to take action, individually or in spontaneous teams, motivated by the energizing conversations and the sense that we're in this thing together after all.
