David Bohm, his ongoing interest in dialogue and his attempts to implement it were a form of laboratory experiment in which he did not yet know the results (Nichol, 1994 transcript of dialogue session). The following features of Bohmian dialogue were not set out in concrete at the start, but over time, they formed the basis for the praxis.
These central features of Bohmian dialogue are: 
No pre-established purpose – no agenda
Shared Meaning
Suspending assumptions/judgments, not trying to persuade or influence
Flow of meaning
Group Size of 20-40 people to constitute a “micro-cultural context”
Exposing of tacit infrastructures
No content excluded
No moderation – facilitation is used only to initiate the process and is dropped thereafter
Impersonal Fellowship
Proprioception: Self-awareness of thought, feelings, emotions, body as one undivided whole
Regular weekly or monthly meetings
