9 am – 4 pm (lunch from 12 – 1:30 pm): Swarthmore College, Science Center, Room 101
Join this acclaimed author-teacher in a day-long gathering aimed to revolutionize your effectiveness as a leader, healer, and/or social activist in times of rapid change. Our society is entering a time of profound transition. Crises in the economy, the ecosystem, health, education, water, energy, and more are propelling our civilization toward a radically different way of living on planet earth. Such conditions call for a new kind of leader, and even a whole new paradigm of leadership. At stake are the deep questions: “Who are we?” What are we here to create?” “What is the role of humanity on earth, and how may I contribute to it?”
In this gathering we will explore, in concept and in practice: Our unique historical moment; from separation to connection; The dynamics of transition (personal, organization, planetary); Envisioning together “a more beautiful world our hearts tell us is possible;” Leadership independent of power structures and hierarchies; What does leadership mean in a non-hierarchical setting?; The necessity for miracles, and how to access them; How to accomplish what seems impossible; Rebuilding community and meaningful relationships through living in “the gift.”
Please note: A paid deposit of $35.00 (plus a small transaction fee) is required to attend this workshop. The deposit will be returned to you at the workshop. Charles does not charge a speaking fee, but asks that each individual gift their payment to him, according to their own measure of gratitude. You may take the money we return to you, add or subtract from it, and make your gift to both Charles and/or the sponsors at that time. You may also gift a payment directly to him in advance of the workshop at his website. We will reserve 50 spaces for Swarthmore College students to attend without charge (with current student ID.)
Registration is limited to 175 people. Lunch is not provided, but there is a small cafe in the Science Center, many good restaurants and a Food Co-op in town, and ample open space to sit and enjoy a lunch brought from home in and around the Center. We strongly encourage people to pack their own lunches.
