GAIA is an impromptu global infrastructure for sense-making

About this Event

GAIA is an impromptu global infrastructure, offered by the Presencing Institute in light of the Covid-19 pandemic for sense-making, for leaning into our current moment of disruption, and letting this moment move us toward civilizational renewal. This is a 14-week journey with an online platform to connect (to be shared soon) and calls to co-sense together.

Spanish speakers can sign up for sessions here.

Portuguese speakers can sign up for sessions here.

German speakers can sign up for sessions here (alternative dates!).

Leading up to the July 10-11 virtual Global Forum, GAIA will practice a collective "inhale and exhale" together. On the "inhale" weeks, we will meet together virtually as a global community, with co-sensing conversations and hearing from inspirational guests. On the "exhale" weeks, you will meet together with your communities in the ways that work best for you (live, digitally or in person) with an iterative framework we will share during the global community conversations.

July 10-11: Global Forum: From Ego to Eco 2030

Framing & Description

Covid-19, like any disruption, essentially confronts each of us with a choice: (1) to freeze, turn away from others, only care for ourselves, or (2) to turn toward others to support and comfort those who need help. That choice between acting from ego or acting from ecosystem awareness is one that we face every day, every hour, every moment. The more the world sinks into chaos, desperation, and confusion, the greater our responsibility to radiate presence, compassion, and grounded action confidence.

GAIA offers a journey for change-makers, leaders, and citizens from all sectors, systems, and cultures — a journey that will culminate in a virtual Global Forum, multi-local and multi-regional, in July, co-created among the participants and focused on the transformation journey of the next decade.

The actual format of this journey will evolve with and adjust to the situation unfolding around us. GAIA's infrastructure invites you to join with your whole Self and is designed to be accessible to all, whether you join from home while in self-quarantine or in concert with friends and fellow change-makers in your local organization or community.

The time to pause, to sense, to connect, and to act together is now. Because no one can do this alone. By activating our capacity for deep listening, we support each other, co-sense what is actually going on in current reality and what is wanting to be born. GAIA can help us function as a collective organ of perception - a shared perceptive capacity we create together.

Over the next 14 weeks, we will co-activate a process of civilizational renewal, helping us to:

-re-imagine how we want to live and work together

- re-invent our economies towards serving the wellbeing of all

- evolve our democracies in ways that make them more direct and dialogic,

- And, re-shape our learning systems in ways that integrate head, heart, and hand.
