Dialogue is the alchemical power that transforms mere talking into relational magic. It is the essential ingredient necessary to build and sustain all relationships — casual, formal, intimate, or distant. Embracing dialogue is about transcending the legacy of separation, scarcity, and powerlessness so we can enter the rich and rewarding experience that Martin Buber describes as “a conversation with an unknown outcome.” Overcoming fear, we can authentically express what is of the essence for us. Stretching empathically toward connection, we open to what someone else is trying to say. Transcending either/or, we ask for everything and remain open to hearing no. Together, we discover and co-create previously unimaginable solutions that work for everyone. How exhilarating to know that empathy is not a cost to us, and that self-acceptance is our key entry ticket into the world of dialogue.
