Expanding Beyond Belief | A Reunion with Reverence

On November 6, 2020, we held our final FireCircle of the year where we listened for wisdom as we grappled with the question: How do we invite reverence back into our lives?

This three-hour virtual interactive conversation featured the thought leadership and living wisdom of global voices: Métis artist of impact Andrea Menard, Gemini-nominated filmmaker Dianne Whelan, and Author, Speaker, and Philosopher Charles Eisenstein.

FireCircle 2020 is an intentional morning gathering with a diverse cross-section of leaders who are ready to lead differently in their own lives and within their sphere of influence. Join us for this in-depth and interactive experience that models whole-self leadership, group listening, and collective wisdom gathering; a process of asking, answering, and implementing to bring the leaders of today through the fire of our times.

Why a FireCircle?

Activating our braid, our interconnectedness-in-action, is how we move forward and upward as a society with greater ease and efficiency to re-imagine and re-build the systems of sustainability most needed at this time. Read more here.
