John Engle, based in Haiti, works with colleagues in an initiative called, The Experiment (

Our purpose is to cultivate knowledge and experience which fosters peace and self-determination.

Our vision is for principles essential in Open Space and Touchstones discussions ( to become as common in meetings, seminars, conferences, and classrooms as the use of podiums, flipcharts, and chalk boards.

Our core strategy is to develop and nurture communities of Open Space and Touchstones discussion practitioners who use these methods effectively, both in their own institutions and groups and with other institutions and groups.
