Each year representatives from established centers around the world gather in the spirit of collaboration, and one place has been reserved in the May 2017 Gathering for a new participant to join us.
Join Esalen, Omega, Hollyhock, The Haven, Findhorn Foundation, New York Open Center and other centers including ones in China, Africa and Greece in conversation around a range of themes. Dive in to topics relevant to us as centers including marketing, programming, leadership and sustainability and enjoy the friendship and camaraderie as we share our experience with each other.
Our monthly webinar in March focused on the theme of diversity and participants contributed from The Haven in BC, Canada, Breitenbush Hot Springs in Oregon, Abrevista in Florida, Omega in New York and the Findhorn Foundation in Scotland.
In advance of the call, we were invited to reflect on a range of questions and these formed the framework for our discussion, including;
How do you define diversity?
What is your Center’s current conversation around the topic?
Where do you find resistance or struggle around the theme of diversity?
Frederic Laloux, the author of Reinventing Organisations, will be joining us via Skype during the Centers Gathering in May. The session called ‘Vision and Values – Integral Leadership’ will be a talk followed by Q&A.
To prepare as a circle in advance, I reached out to Gathering Participants for their reflections on this opportunity, curious as to who else is familiar with, interested in or has experience of his work.
On the flight back from the Gathering in Quebec last year I had the insight that our circle reflects many of the more evolved qualities that Laloux describes in his book and I’m intrigued about how we can explore this more within our respective centers.
The humble Indian sage, Mahatma Gandhi, shared a deep spiritual truth, ‘If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change’.
A transformational learning center invites us to do just that and open to the possibilities. It might feel scary, exciting, challenging or intense to step into the transformational field of a TLC, yet these are places that have mostly grown up out of a deep commitment and dedication to personal growth and are there to encourage, inspire and support us along the way.
Come and explore some of the qualities of a TLC community…
There is a planetary transformation of consciousness
and these centers give people hope.
