First I want to thank you for your mail, as it allowed me to became aware
of a small point where what I wrote was not what I intended. As it may be
important in the future, let me first correct. What I intended to say was:

>In other words how can we facilitate personal, organisational,
> or social "metanoias"?

This is important because from the "Plan of Posts" I sent sometime ago you
may imagine that I have the intention to later answer some of this
questions, namely the organisational one... And if you have imagined that,
you are right; I will.

Now, answering to your point: if someone answers my question, I will do
WHAT I expect some of you to do when I will send my (approach of) answer
to the same question: try it! And AFTER post here the results.

What I will not do: answer with some "opinions" or "beliefs" or
"pressupositions" without first trying it. This is compatible with my idea
of "Reflective Practice"...

And, Thanks for asking...

You are so very right. And to stay over their shoulders, one must take a
lot of care and have a certain agility. That's life ;-)

But you have shown the same type of agility many times before, even if my
limitations in the use of English some times don't allow me to follow you

[and thanks for choosing Cezane - one of my favorities. (During many
years, each time I went to Paris, I would make a visit to the Museum of
"Le Jeu de Pomme" to see the impressionist collection. Then they moved the
collection to the new museum of (his it Orsay? any how, a remodelated
underground station where they have decided to create a museum. If you are
real agile and or have 20yo I would suggest you go there. I felt too much
tired before the middle and gave up. (And, I am not British, so I have
nothing against France ;-)

Warm Regards
