Approaching That More Beautiful World Our Hearts Know Is Possible
“One of the up-and-coming great minds of our time.”-- David Korten
We all feel it—the old stories don't work anymore. We all suspect it—"normal" is not going to come back. Maybe, says Charles Eisenstein, this is not a bad thing. The reigning mythologies—separation, competition, and self-interest--that underlie the institutions of our civilization and the structures of our individual lives have clearly reached their limits. We find ourselves now in the space between stories, and Charles believes it is time to let the separatist myth go. It’s time to open our hearts to the reality of interconnectedness. During this highly interactive weekend, you'll tap into a framework in which spirituality and activism converge and discover how this can translate into political, ecological, and social change. Through process work, you’ll begin to clear the barriers that limit our powers as healers and agents of change. A miracle, Charles says, is simply something that doesn't fit our existing world view. That more beautiful world is not just possible; it is necessary, and it is closer than you think!
This workshop runs an extra day and costs an additional $120.
