What is...

Dialog-OS
Dialog-OS is a play on the term dialogos that also references the essential nature of dialog in human interactions. Dialogos translates to ‘through the logos’. The Logos being an active relational and spiritual principle that permeates all reality. It’s also a term that can be related across science and religion, in that it can also reference “divine wisdom”. 

In the context of Dialog-OS, dialogos represents an ever-present potential in dialectic, often showing up through the collective flow. A flow that explores, comes into contact and engages with the ‘deeper truth’ of whatever has our attention. An experience that offers insights that we wouldn’t otherwise have been able to come to on our own.

Therefore, Dialog-OS hosts events and courses that offer its participants a playground to access dialogos in service of becoming more wise.
Wisdom
Simply put, Wisdom is the harmonizing of one’s View, Care and Action. Here, View refers to how we see ourselves, others and the world. Care refers to what we perceive as meaningful, and Action refers to what we do. 

We believe the motivation for becoming more wise is so we can avoid foolishness such that we can experience more Goodness, Truth and Beauty in our lives and the world. 

Dialog-OS offers ‘Wisdom Practices’ in service of this.

The Kernel
The Kernel is our deep dive into an ecology of practices that serve the cultivation of wisdom. It’s offered within the context of a ‘fellowship’, which references commitment, consistency and shared context such that we can more authentically show up and be for one another on our journey together.
