As humanity, we are called to a larger conversation and participation in Life. We are called to usher in real change, and help create and shape the face of the future for ourselves and generations to come. The time is now.
The Call: We are calling forward our inherent leadership genius and our collective dreaming, so together, we can co-create best practices for establishing new structures and processes that serve all people and the earth.
The question is:
“Are we up to the challenge? Will we step up as humanity?”
To do that we must shift. We must change. So this is a call.
“Will you take a stand?” “Will you step beyond your own edge?”
We are calling experienced professionals from across the planet that carry expertise in many diverse arenas—business executives, humanitarians, visionaries, community leaders, consultants, politicians, environmental promoters, educators, health care professionals—to name a few. This kind of participant diversity creates a rich tapestry in our learning community. We are looking for those who deeply want to make a difference in the pathway ahead in this human journey. We are calling those who are willing to take a stand for life-affirming action in each of our lives, in our communities, in our nations and on this planet.
Why is this needed now? Evocative leaders are needed in this changing time to draw forth the best from those they interact with as well as to evoke the kind of higher consciousness required to address the volatile, complex and ambiguous issues we all face at this time.
Evocative leadership emerges from a culture of interrelatedness, which holds the deep value of relationship, respect for life and collective wisdom. This training journey involves deep personal growth along with developing the capacity to evoke life-affirming outcomes in all the rings of relationship – personal, partnership, community and work – as these rings ripple out to create global impact.
What is the Program Flow?
To enter the Evocative Leadership Mastery™ journey, the Portal Gathering is required.
To sign up for an online portal, please write firstname.lastname@example.org for registration details.
The structure of the journey consists of the Entry Portal, followed by five 6-day training sessions held every 3 months. Participants are asked to arrive the night before and depart the morning after the 6 days. Between sessions, participants deepen their learning by applying practices and skills and will report and work as a learning community to enhance the depth of the experience. Throughout this program, participants experience their growing mastery through:
- Whole body learning for full integration
- Deep introspective time alone on the earth
- Interactive and experiential team practices to deepen learning
- Use of inquiry to explore and discover depth of insight
- Ancient wisdom practices based on values of earth wisdom cultures
Through these experiences and practices participants:
- Grow their ability to innovate and create
- Work with presence with the ability to appreciate what is
- Respond from a place of inner stability
- Clarify identity and purpose to illuminate the pathway ahead
- Hold the container for growth and change in systems
- See connections and co-create across boundaries
- Build heart mind acuity leading to right action
- Work with life force and the power of shift
What is the structure of the complete training program?
Knowing we face increasing polarity and challenge in our world, we will work with three high level lenses on this journey: The first is the lens of Interiority: practices for balancing the inner landscape of the Leader, called the Ground of Being. The second lens is Polarity and Complementarity: practices for finding the complement in what we see as polarization in the rings of relationship. The third lens is Bridging: practices for finding pathways to wholeness.
We will use a universal map to unfold the Eight Intelligences that are inherent in the human: Creation Intelligence, Perceptual Intelligence, Emotional Intelligence, Pathfinding Intelligence, Sustaining Intelligence, Predictive Intelligence, Decisive Intelligence and Energia Intelligence. We will open the Ground of Being, how we stand within, as well as practicing the skills of being an Evocative Leader in the first four sessions.
The second part of the journey, following the first four retreats, open into pathways we call intensives. Each pathway will offer something different and can be chosen according to the interest and wish for additional deepening of the Evocative Leader.
The TOOL Intensive is a deep practice in working with individuals, partnership and teams. We offer eight vital tools with an emphasis on Evoking. The Intensive training prepares the Evocative leader to evoke the highest potential from self and others, with tools that inspire, grow and ignite the best in each of us to grow the future toward our dreams of a sustainable and peaceful world.
The COUNCIL Intensive is a profound earth based practice to gather the voices of the people to share wisdom perspectives and move toward wholeness in our relationships, communities and world.
Participants will receive certification after successfully demonstrating proficiency in using the tools.
Additional intensives will be added at a later date.
