Women’s Leadership Gathering
“Reconnecting Women in business to the wisdom of the feminine to lead in a new way.”
Mullumbimby NSW, 7th-14th October 2019
Women in Business, you are invited to gather
The time has come, for women to lead as women.
You are invited to gather with indigenous elders, to listen and to learn their ways of connection. This is your opportunity to slow down in nature, to deeply listen and return to reverence. Nature and the ancient ways of our indigenous, teach us how to live and lead in a way that restores and sustains life. When we are deeply connected to our environment and our abilities as women, we become capable of creating impactful and sustainable change. In this gathering you will develop the skills of circular leadership, these are:
VISION based on DEEP LISTENING
Deepening your ability to work INTUITIVELY and innovatively
Greater clarity when working COLLABARATIVELY
Depth of AWARENESS ~ self, others, environment and energetics (energy of self and others)
Cultivate your power and ability as a WOMAN
CREATE more connectivity within your workplace and in everyday life.
“When women connect deeply to nature we connect to our innate ability as women. We become deep listeners capable of intuitive, nurturing and restorative vision and action. This is the feminine way of living and leading in the world.”
Circular leadership is based on deep listening, it has been practiced by indigenous cultures for thousands of years. This form of leadership is responsive to the needs of both the community and the environment, it is eco-centric. In our current environmental and human crisis, it has become critical that our actions as leaders are eco-centric.
Feminine leadership is also circular, it is regenerative and naturally innovative. It serves the whole ecosystem, rather than serving one purpose or one person. As a way of living it is deeply connecting and holistic.
Current day society is out of balance, disconnected to nature and the indigenous way. In the noise of business we as a nation have lost touch with the wisdom of the feminine. Nature and indigenous wisdom hold the key to unlock the nature of the feminine.
“Women hold the power of creating life and nurturing life, of instinct and intuition.”
How does this change the way I do business?
Learning the skills of deep listening and empathy based action generates healthy ecosystems. When the leaders of business have the capacity to lead in a way that is connected to the whole ecosystem the business runs harmoniously, without negative impact to people or place (environment). Connected leaders work with full accountability, always attuned to ‘right action’ action that is aligned to the good of the whole. This is sustainable not just for the business but for the environment and all generations to come.
The Journey Ahead
For six days you will be immersed in the natural beauty of the Byron Bay Hinterlands. We will have the honour of local elders sharing wisdom and story of their connection to the land. This is a 100,000 year old culture that teaches us the ways of deep listening, to sustain and support the whole ecosystem, land, people and all the generations to come.
This journey will also include:
Silent walks in nature and supported meditation
Learning the ways of indigenous ~ understanding their perspective, culture and abilities as deep listeners
Learning the ways of nature ~ experiencing nature from the inside out
Reconnecting to the wisdom of woman ~ through quiet reflection, meditation and circle
Creating your vision for the future based on deep listening
“Circular is feminine, it is how women work and lead naturally.”
