Some more words about the Cultural Emergence:
Humanity is presently in a crisis of disconnection and a time of mass cultural emergency; we see the personal, social, political and environmental problems as stemming from a lack of cultural understanding and cohesion. We believe there are tools that can help turn this around into mass cultural emergence; where abundance, gratitude, care and connection are part of our everyday culture. Emergence is a term used in systems thinking where 2 or more things come together with unexpected results. By bringing people together with these tools and methods we have the opportunity to ask good questions and to co-create answers and solutions and emerge the culture we want.
We will look at the many levels of culture, right through from our own personal culture and patterns of being, to the global context. We will share tools and processes for ways of being, thinking and seeing differently that enable breakthroughs to occur. Inviting what may previously seem impossible to become possible through collaboration, co-creating and emergence. People will be invited to nurture the visions they hold for themselves, their communities and the world. You will have the opportunity to consider and clarify your contribution to the world and empower yourself to keep to your true path in life.
