21st July ASN: Discussion - Regenerative, forget sustainable, it isn’t working

  11AM LA / 2PM NY / 7PM UK Register in advance We seem to be trapped into thinking that the solutions to our ecological and human issues are going to come from within our understanding of how everything works now, when in fact all we are doing is squeezing out the last dregs of potential from the technologies we discovered in the last century, if not the one before that.  Do we need to give up on sustainability as a way of thinking, and think differently? Does the idea that a regenerative approach will have a far better outcome and likelihood of success? Let’s not for example think about making cars go further on a different type of fuel, let’s think instead about a world without cars.  Let’s go to the core of what it means to be alive in a world of 7.9 billion people, with fewer resources, but with a mindset and ingenuity that will fix everything. Register in advance Join us to discuss How does a regenerative approach differ to a sustainable approach  Why we need to think differentl

16th June 2022 ASN: Discussion - A World View: A glimpse of the future. What can you see?

Image
  11AM LA / 2PM NY / 7PM UK Register in advance The planet we call home is smaller than it’s ever been, and its interconnections are more than evident. The option of living on another planet is not now entirely science fiction, that said, for everyone (except a tiny percentage) we have little option other than to consider our position in reality, grounded here, on earth. What are your immediate thoughts - science fiction or near reality?  What is your worldview? The signals of change can often be hard to spot but the results of change are more and more evident. How /does it affect you, and how do you see your future? Will/can technology save us?  Will the survival of the fittest remain the model humanity has to endure, or will another economic and more humanistic model emerge? Register in advance Join us to discuss Your understanding of the world - positive, negative or a combination of both  What shapes your understanding of the world - your sources and influences  How change happen

15th September 2022 ASN: Discussion - Why are we so bad at listening?

Image
 11AM LA / 2PM NY / 7PM UK Register in advance What is communication? How do we communicate? During the pandemic we had to rely on texts, emails, posts, video; essentially, communication with far less of the non-verbal clues and indicators we would previously have relied on.  As we continue to navigate a different phase of the pandemic, that of communication in a post-pandemic world, we find ourselves having to relearn the etiquette of face to face conversation. Has the way you socially interact changed?? What is my body language telling you? Are you talking to fill a supposed awkward silence or are you really listening to learn something new?  Through the exploration of all of the different ways in which we communicate, can we learn and benefit from deep listening, and collective sensing to bring empathy and a greater chance of experiencing deep and meaningful interactions? Register in advance    Join us to discuss Sensing and communication beyond words  Exercises to develop listeni
