About this event


		Global Forum 2021: Stepping into the Decade of Transformation image

One year ago, with countries successively locking down, we were called worldwide into a collective moment of sensemaking as the limits of our existing social infrastructure were nakedly exposed.

This is the decade of transformation. We know our societies are in dire need of transformation and renewal, yet we lack the capacity to act collectively. Disruption presents us with the choice to freeze and look after ourselves, or to turn towards others and act from a place of compassion and grounded action confidence.

One year into the Decade of Transformation, and one year into the pain of the global pandemic, the Global Forum offers us an opportunity to take a pause, gather our breath, and turn inwards – together.

A Focus on Collective healing

During the GAIA Journey, Thomas Hübl shared that “integrated history is presence and unintegrated history is the past. When we’ve dissociated from our painful moments, they keep replaying.” As a global community we are called to have the courage to look at our painful moments – today, and in the shadows of our past.

The School for Transformation and this year’s Global Forum invite us to step into a process of collective healing, with the guidance of faculty like Melanie Goodchild, Angel Acosta and Thomas Hübl. What does it take to decolonize our societies, economies, and ourselves?

The Journey: Going Into the Woods

After a strenuous year of connecting over webcam, this year’s Global Forum calls for a different experience. At the core of this year’s event is a solitary journey: we invite you to step away from your desk and put in your headphones, for a guided sensing process that draws on the wisdom of our global community to help you take deeper root where you are and move through a practice of regeneration and renewal.

The two-day forum anchors this personal, audio-only experience with video sessions that bring out community together for collective resonance and sense-making.

DAY 1: TUESDAY, JUNE 15th

Opening Session - Re-Integrating Ourselves and Our Planet

June 15th, 8:00-10:00am EDT - Live Zoom Session

During the live opening session, Melanie Goodchild, Angel Acosta, and Thomas Hübl will join our School for Transformation (u.School) faculty to inquire about what renewal and re-integration look like, and what we see and sense in the emerging future.

Audio Garden - Your Personal Listening Journey

June 15th - Self-paced, offline experience

We have created new possibilities for connecting as a global community of sense-makers by curating a diverse selection of 10-20 min audio experiences, designed to help us each sense into our own unique place, in our own time, while also connecting to the larger whole of this planetary moment.

You’ll be able to choose and create your own path through a selection of audio artefacts: Sensing Journeys, Stories, Practices and Essentials from the Presencing Institute archive.

DAY 2: WEDNESDAY, JUNE 16th

Global Resonance Session - Coming Back Together

June 16th, 9:00-11:00am EDT - Live Zoom Session

Led by some of our practitioners from across the globe, this session will invite voice and vision from around the world in a moment of collective presence. Together we will pause to notice what is resonating in our global community, and turn to each other to share our experiences.

Community-Organized Sessions

Regional Sessions - Program forthcoming

To crystallize what’s emerged from the global resonance session, language tracks and hubs are facilitating their own sessions - activating locally what we have been experiencing together as a global community.
