Event Description

Early bird discount still available, please mention Julie Allan's name when booking.

Join the wonderful Nora Bateson for this special two day exploration into the further reaches of a new leadership.

This is the era of the in-between. In this workshop we will be attending to what keeps us stuck and trapped and what will enable us forward to fresh and more rewarding possibilities. Some of the ideas and themes we will be exploring are:

Liminal realms: the era of the in-between. We are between cultures, between the ways of living of the past, and the ways of living of the future. We have old habits that cast shadows across the visions for new becomings. Old ways of living that are premised upon exploitation of human and ecological rights are not yet gone, and new ways of living have not yet manifested. The word liminal refers to this ripe, but confusing state, mid-transformation.

What is change?: mechanistic and linear notions of change are susceptible to mechanistic and linear solutions, what other change might there be?

Symmathesy: Looking at living systems as contexts of mutual learning.

Who are we now?: Mythology of heroes, leaders and the crisis of perception. Redefining these roles for the pathways ahead.

Identity in complexity: You are an ecology of selves. Identity is at the core of our perception process. Bringing complexity to identity makes it more possible for the complexity of others to be more visible.

The Paradox of Agency: You are you, and you are your contexts.

Ecology of institutions: The institutions of our world have formed an inter-dependency that we are having difficulty extracting from. Economy, technology, medicine, education, politics, religion—these institutions are woven into each other now, and woven into our lives.

Nora Bateson describes herself as an “interdisciplinary interloper” she travels between conversations in different fields and with different audiences bringing multiple perspectives into view to reveal larger patterns.

Hi all.  I'm a delegate on this so see you there if you can make it. It's a 4.30pm finish on Day 2 and there is a discounted rate at the Hilton if you need to stay - just get the info from Paul at Beyond: 

This is the second time I know of that they have hosted Nora and I very much enjoyed the first day as it's really quite tricky to maintain a fully holistic approach and 'live' what Nora refers to as symmathesy.  Her Dad was the chap who wrote Steps to an Ecology of Mind. . . Nora has her own expression of this ecological type of approach for our current times and, of course, is very familiar with its history.
