Economic Evolution: Navigating the Space Between Stories
Wednesday, May 18 at 7 PM - 10 PM
Awakening House - 2519 16 St NW, Calgary, AB, Canada
The rapidly shifting economic landscape is giving us an opportunity to re-define work and explore different ways of finding meaning, fulfillment, and happiness through service in our lives. Whether it is fluctuating global markets, shifting political or social relationships, a lower price of a particular commodity, the rising prices (for nearly everything), or the continued trend of technology replacing people, the effects and fears of economic uncertainty are being felt by many. Can we as individuals co-create a new story of service, interdependent support, and lasting security?
This four session series is intended to provide a space for people to come together and explore practical solutions for creating a world that nurtures support and facilitates revitalizing flow between gifts and needs. An exciting look into where we are at, where we are going, and how we might get there, Economic Evolution: Navigating the Space Between Stories will empower your life through constriction and uncertainty, and into the creatively inspired imagination found in working together.
***Session I - The Creative Communitarian and An Economic Rebel***
What do you wish you had more of in your life? For many, the answer to that can be summed up in one word: community. Full of varied meanings, the word community is often described as a sense of belonging, a feeling of purpose, a life of meaningful connections, a knowing of support, and a recognition of our role and value within a web of mutually supportive interdependent relationships.
During this first session we will explore the story and experience of community as it relates to our economic evolution as individuals and a collective. What is community and why should we care? Why is it missing and how can we create a stronger sense of it in our lives? And how are Economic Rebels and Creative Communitarians saving the planet?
Come out for an engaging and heart provoking dive into a new story of personal empowerment and collective inspiration as we lay the foundation for the Economic Evolution series.
