Event Description: This gathering is aimed to revolutionize your effectiveness as a leader, healer, and social activist in times of rapid change. Our society is entering a time of profound transition. Crises in the economy, the ecosystem, health, education, water, energy, and more are propelling our civilization toward a radically different way of living on planet earth. Such conditions call for a new kind of leader, and even a whole new paradigm of leadership. At stake are the deep questions: “Who are we?” What are we here to create?” “What is the role of humanity on earth, and how may I contribute to it?”
In this gathering we will explore, in concept and in practice: Our unique historical moment; from separation to connection; The dynamics of transition (personal, organization, planetary); Envisioning together “a more beautiful world our hearts tell us is possible;” Leadership independent of power structures and hierarchies; What does leadership mean in a non-hierarchical setting?; The necessity for miracles, and how to access them; How to accomplish what seems impossible; Rebuilding community and meaningful relationships through living in “the gift.”
Many people sense that the multiple crises of today share a common root. All of them come from an invisible mythology: a Story of the Self and a Story of the People that holds us separate from each other and the world. In this gathering, we will see clearly how this mythology generates the dominant institutions of our civilization, as well as the structures of our own lives. We will touch upon our innate knowledge that a more beautiful world is possible. We will see how to draw power from that knowledge. We will tap into a larger framework of cause and effect than the old story recognizes so that we can envision and accomplish what once seemed impossible. We will begin to clear the invisible habits of Separation that limit our power as healers and change agents. And we will experience the convergence of the worlds of spirituality and activism -- a necessity when we understand that the roots of the present crisis go all the way to the bottom. Utilizing multiple modalities, this workshop will crystallize the "next step" in your transition into the New Story.
