Greetings Community,

Beija’s Healing Market is tomorrow night starting at 6pm. Drop in to check out some local healers and have a dance party in the Studio. Ish’s area will be open with catered food.

Diversity Training in Western Culture

Michael Welp is co-founder of White Men as Full Diversity Partners, and for thirty years has worked extensively with leadership teams in organizations around the world to grow courageous leadership skills, transform conflict, and create cultures of full inclusion.

Michael and Robert discuss the importance of Relational Leadership training given our current global and cultural challenges.

Topics discussed:
– What is relational leadership, and why is it so important in this challenging political climate?
– Discovering our cultural blind-spots; seeing the water that we swim in
– Head vs Heart — Do we have to choose between rationality and emotionality?
– Listening to fix or debate compared to listening to relate
– How to model what we want to see in the world with our relationships
– The Sameness / Difference paradox. How are we all the same, and different based on our cultures and as individuals.
– How courageous conversations can lead to better results and performance

Michael will be presenting and facilitating at the upcoming Relational Leadership Summit in Boulder Colorado, Oct 26-29th. Learn more here: relationalleadershipsummit.com

Integral Salon – Activism, Violence, Justice, Resistance – What’s an Integralist To Do?

Join us again this Monday evening for our ongoing conversation about Integral Theory & Practice.

We’ll be talking about how we can make a positive difference in the world and its future. What to do, to not do, to change or keep the same? And how we can be a help rather than a nuisance.

“We are living in an ultra-fast changing, challenging time,” Orion said. “Beautiful things are happening and horrifying things are happening. My personal journey led me to use my brush to create visions for a new conscious world. I encourage others to explore and express their innate talents and raise their own consciousness, in turn, affecting positive change in the world. Positive sustainable change can only come from a positive sustainable consciousness.”
