Wisdom Gathering: Courage to Listen

  • Harvesting insights from the past

  • Sensing what life wants from you now

  • Turning into the brave new world that wants to emerge

This highly experiential workshop is designed for those that want to take some time to reflect, evaluate and make some informed choices.

Over the course of a spacious 2.5 days, we’ll allow ourselves to be guided by nature, our inner wisdom and the wider ecosystem. Entering the silent and sacred realm of the natural world, we can create a field of courageous dreams.

We will learn from ancient indigenous practices and gather as a community around the campfire, we’ll work in small groups, whilst also creating space for deep reflection so that we can courageously listen out for what life wants from us now. Through an emergent process of sensing and paying attention to what needs to be looked at, we will gather our wisdom and create a courageous space to cultivate the best possible conditions for breakthroughs.

This is perfect timing for you if you are (or the wider system is) entering a phase of transition – you may be...

  • Contemplating your leadership for the next phase of the journey
  • Preparing for a step change into new territory
  • Making significant decisions from a whole life perspective
  • Relishing the opportunity to step back, evaluate and make some informed choices

Join us in The Wisdom Gathering to:

  • Strengthen your awareness and ability to be present, resilient and a compassionate presence during chaos, stress and uncertainty
  • Amplify your sensing of what the systems you inhabit need, rather than what you want from them
  • Expand your capacity for and your confidence in, your inner knowing to invite what wants to emerge, and amplify your ability to listen
  • Deepen your understanding of your embodied presence and tap into your sensing and body intelligence, to better navigate change and to collectively create a healthier & more sustainable ecosystem
