Rising Women Rising World - April 2019 monthly gathering Mon 08 Apr

  • Sustainability

Free your thinking and take action!

"To discover your mission and put it into action – instead of worrying on the sidelines – is to find peace of mind and a heart full of love.“ - Scilla Elworthy, Nobel Peace Prize nominee and author of Pioneering the Possible: Awakened leadership for a world that works (2014) and The Business Plan for Peace – Building a world without war (2017). https://www.scillaelworthy.com/

The Rising Women Rising World programme at Hawkwood Centre for Future Thinking is an ongoing conversation / inner action group. 

You don't have to be a leader or an activist, you don't even have to be a woman! Just bring your open mind and heart. The intention is to raise our consciousness, bringing the Feminine into balance with the Masculine. Men are very welcome.

Each evening is an open conversation, like a "Salon", with a different topic each time. It is held on the second Monday of the month.

Free your thinking and take action!

In the spirit of rising to the challenge, this evening introduces a dynamic tool from systems thinking that can help us deal with issues – whether personal or planetary – that we are ready to shift. Action Experiment takes you through cycles of responses and changes. Key words for this emergent process are complexity, freeing your thinking, experiment, uncertainty, learning from the future. 

We hope this piques your curiosity!

Your host Katie Lloyd-Nunn is the programme and communications manager at Hawkwood. She has experience facilitating groups and holding a space having lived at Findhorn 1990-2000, as well as leading singing and teaching yoga. She is inspired by conversation as a way to listen respectfully to others, to find out what we know and believe through speaking, and to express this in a natural and authentic way.

Reflections from regular attendees

On the new Climate change theme, Helen writes:

Thank you very much for a very stimulating evening last Monday.  Although it should have been very depressing facing up to the true horror of irreversible climate change, I found the evening made me strangely upbeat.  I think it was because or two things.  The first was connection with interesting people and so not feeling alone with my worries.  The second was that in facing the fear of climate change, some of the fear went even though the inevitability is still there.  Fear is disempowering and can make one feel hopeless.  However, facing the fear gives one choices and I think that is very positive.  Having considered myself to be an environmentalist for as long as I can remember, it was good to take a different approach to it.
