What can we find beyond division……
Imagine a Canada where well-held, heart-felt dialogue about complex issues was the normal. Where people feel and believe that their voice and heart matter to their community.
Environment vs. economy? rural vs. urban? Vaccine vs. no vaccine? Are these issues tearing your community and loved ones apart? What if we got really good at creating safe spaces to pause from debating, convincing and fighting and start listening deeper and wider, than we’ve been able to before? What might open up? What do you yearn for in your community?
Your Voice Matters
Your Heart Matters
About us: The Spirit of Canada Dialogue Project is a volunteer network of dialogue hosts across Canada. As a Core Team, we support people to develop and practice their skills to host dialogues beyond division. Hosts are invited to explore taboo or sticky subjects with their communities. We invite sharing what is breaking our hearts, and feeling into what breaks our hearts OPEN to new possibilities.
“Feeling and sharing broken heartedness and discovering open heartedness, frees us to face the future together.”
Kara Stonehouse, Vision Holder
Spirit of Canada
The Spirit of Canada, for us, is a collective consciousness encompassing the land , animals and peoples through time, before and including the legal entity called Canada. It holds all the aspiration and potential as well as all the suffering of the diverse collective. Our offering is to shed light and healing on the places where we feel stuck and uncomfortable so we can face the future and potential as a diverse, caring and wise collective.
We use the root meaning of dialogue: to engage in a ‘flow of meaning’ which can take more forms than verbal conversation. Nature is included in the flow.
Join our monthly community call on Zoom
Together, we practice listening beyond division on various topics of interest, providing opportunities to learn and create community. If you are interested in hosting your own generative dialogue with us, we’ll support you in designing the engagement and delivering it to your audience.
Calls are generally every second Thursday at 3pm EST.

Politics of Spirit
In our first community call in 2023, we invite you to join an exploration of New Consciousness in Politics – The Politics of Spirit. Please join us and our friend Rodrigo Martínez Romero. Rod is the co-founder of the Spiritual Politics Lab and the School of Conscious Politics (SCP), into an open dialogue about our personal and community relationship with politics.
In his emergent work, Rodrigo collaborates with trainers, artists, spiritual leaders such as Chief Phil Lane Jr, and researchers to test, innovate and experiment with heart-driven political leadership education curricula. He brings his inspiration from the unifying Legend and Prophecy of the Eagle, Condor, and Quetzal,.
Together we will explore our relationship with sacred politics. Rod will present a thought-provoking perspective about the possibilities of actualizing Spirit in Politics and encourage our inquiry “What might the Spirit of Canada be calling us?
Join us on Thursday, January 12 from 3 pm – 4:30 pm EDT.
