For millennia humans have developed stories about power and leadership, of which many have been of great service to humanities thriving. Yet, mostly over the past century, these stories have begun not only to lose their usefulness, but to create disruptive and even life-threatening harm to our planetary livelihood.
More and more people are awakening to the need of living a more regenerative, interconnected, and interdependent life. A beautiful variety of local and global organizations and communities are emerging from this need, carried by people yearning to serve the purpose of a wholistic approach to life. For this, a shift of our relationship to power and leadership is needed, but – more often than not – old stories that shape our belief systems on the deepest level form a seemingly invincible blockage on this journey.
In this presentation we will explore how accessing different states of awareness can support us in shifting our relationship to power – the power in us, in others and in all – and how this can open us up to allow for the emergence of a life affirming manifestation of power shifted and purposeful leadership in service to the web of life.
