What stands out for me about Dynamic Dialogue is that I think it is one of the most profound acts of loving, one that often times I take for granted. When I consciously practice the model, I am profoundly aware of the gifting of my attention and the receiving of the attention of another. This movement towards depth of curiosity, caring, and generosity that we humans can be capable of, has deeply impacted me in terms of (at most) connectedness, and (at the very least), clarity. It is a way for me to find myself, and with others, to find each other in this world.
