August 23: Practicing Partnership with the Earth

The invitation is fascination…listening and acting in partnership with the voice of the earth

The Center for Partnership Studies is delighted to be teaming with applied transformational ecology consultant Ann Amberg, M.C.S. on Wednesday, August 23, 2017 for this special event.

Each of us in our uniqueness has a vital role to play in the evolution of a new human-earth partnership based on care, reciprocity and respect. In this time of radical change, loss and uncertainty, an informed and committed relationship with the earth grounds our action. Nature is available to engage with us in unexpected ways!

In this 60-minute webinar, Ann will introduce a new dimension in the power of partnership, focusing on re-igniting our intimate connection with the natural world and forming the foundations of a living earth partnership. We’ll take a peek at some of the everyday practices that will be shared in the upcoming workshop Practicing Partnership with the Earth.

Learn about the upcoming 5-session workshop starting September 13 that will introduce 10 simple practices to jump-start our connection with our own true nature and with the natural world as a living subject in all of her wild and intelligent magnificence. Nature is extending to us now an invitation we can’t refuse: a cultural imperative to constrain our impact on life systems and allow ourselves to be reshaped at our leading edge as we act in partnership with the voice of the earth.

“Thank you again for a lovely presentation last night. It was really special, and lovely to feel how the energy of the group deepened when we came together in a circle, connecting and opening. I felt really inspired and supported by the event.”

Workshop starting September 13 – Practicing Partnership with the Earth

Everyday practices to align with what life does in the context of earth as family, economy, culture and home.

The Center for Partnership Studies is delighted to be teaming with applied transformational ecology consultant Ann Amberg, M.C.S. starting Wednesday, September 13, 2017 for this special in-depth workshop.

We are embedded in an evolving  sacred ecology; we can learn to work in synergy with life systems to release outmoded domination systems and nurture our birthright as planetary humans.

Over the course of five interactive sessions, we will utilize systems-based concepts and experiential practices to explore our “true nature” —the human potential of a thriving partnership system that takes nature seriously— and dive into the heart and soul of an emerging human-earth alliance. Drawing from the work of Riane Eisler, climate change scientists and evolutionary philosophers, we’ll deepen our felt sense of “a resurgent partnership consciousness” within our local ecological community.

Guided by self-designed practices that align with nature’s ancient ways of knowing, we’ll assess where we are on the domination-partnership continuum in the context of earth as family, economy, culture and home. In the spirit of reciprocal and respectful relationship with our local place, this interactive workshop will take a deep dive into 10 original, embodied earth partnership practices that will jump-start your connection with your own true nature and with the natural world as a living subject.

In this workshop, you will learn:

• Ten primary life dynamics that shape who we are every day
• Simple embodied practices to align and co-evolve with these patterns
• The links between climate change and earth as primary economy
• How nature’s (our) radiance is disguised as money
• The role of grief in healing the earth-human relationship
• How our capacity for care is mirrored in our relationship to the earth as mother
