“The Space Between (our) Stories” – Charles Eisenstein

We live in a time of crisis. The environment, energy, health care, money, politics, education… none of our systems are working very well any more, and more and more people understand that the way we are doing things is unsustainable. Normal is falling apart. But endings are often also beginnings. What are these crises transitioning us into? What might the new normal look like? In this talk, Charles Eisenstein describes the deep, invisible stories that underlie the crisis of our time, and the new stories upon which we are already beginning to build a different kind of civilization. A new (and ancient) consciousness is emerging, but our institutions – money, medicine, government, and more – are still grounded in the old. This talk will illuminate how we can participate in a revolution in human beingness, that includes a different relationship to Earth, a different experience of self, and a different conception of life purpose than what is normal today.

Sacred Masculine – Charles Eisenstein

We hear all the time about restoring and celebrating the sacred feminine. What about masculinity — does that have a sacred dimension as well? Should the reaction to the horrors of patriarchal male violence be to retreat from masculinity and become more feminine? Or is there perhaps a distinctly masculine way of being that is not about domination and control of women (and of the feminine aspect of both genders)? Join this workshop to explore such questions through dialog and storytelling.

Learn about an approach called Healing Stories that can be used with infants through adults to help change those patterns, connect more deeply with one another, help us to understand the hidden story and create a new story in our cells for ourselves and our children.
