The Art of Humans Being --Explorations in Creating the New Economy
July 16-19, 2012
The Essex Conference Center & Retreat
If the current shift in financial and economic systems is an opportunity, how can we re-pattern our ideas around money, value, and appreciation and start living the new story?
The Art of Humans Being is a series of events committed to helping discover and live the best of who we are as human beings. It is not a plan to save the world. It is a pattern for gathering to learn, to spark, to imagine, to innovate. We come together in a spirit of learning and the conversational practices of The Art of Hosting, Women Moving the Edge, and The School for Collective Leadership. We contribute to movements rooted in principles of participative leadership and social collaboration.
Explorations in Creating the New Economy is created from awareness that we all live in dramatically changing financial and economic times.
Money, and myths of money, are fundamental scripts that dominate much of what we do for a living, who we think we are, and how we relate to others. Myths about money and wealth, taken to scale, have created gross environmental destruction, human degradation, exploited labor markets, and distorted gender roles. People everywhere are beginning to challenge money and economic stories. To explore and begin to create the new.
From the streets where Occupy opened our eyes and awareness we gather in the deep womb of nature to learn - from her and one another - how to create a new economic vision and reality for generations to come.
The Essex Conference Center & Retreat is a deliberate choice because of its aligning mission of transformation and resiliency. Because of this alignment and the compelling call of this time, ECCR is underwriting much of this gathering. Registration cost is $495 plus tax ($513).
