Warrior for the Human: Training to be the Presence of Insight and Compassion
With author, professor, consultant and formal leader Margaret Wheatley
OOctober 24th-30th at Ghost Ranch in Abiquiu New Mexico, USA
Warriors for the Human Spirit are leaders, activists, and citizens who want to make a meaningful contribution in this time of increasing assaults on the human spirit and all life. To serve well, to be effective with their energy and influence, they train to refrain from fear and aggression and to embody the best human qualities of generosity, insight, and compassion. They are leaders who have already developed many skills in community engagement, productive workplaces and systems thinking. Yet these hard-won skills and valuable experiences are not sufficient; a different category of skills and capacities is needed if they are to act wisely and well, persevere, and use their influence and power to offer sane, life-affirming responses as challenges to people and planet intensify.
A variety of processes are used to encourage learning, reflection, and community. And we delight in the opportunity to be together as we learn and explore this new role of Warriors.
These program elements are taught and practiced each day:
- Meditation practice and instruction: morning and evening
- The path of Warriorship
- Direct Perception: Exercises in listening and perceiving
- Qi Gong practice for mind-body awareness
- Warriors at work: Practical applications
- Community engagement
- Personal Reflection and Contemplation
Plans with lodging and meals available.
