APRIL 16 & 17, 2021  FireCircle mornings of group listening and wisdom gathering

Our April 2021 FireCircle begins a nine-year journey of eighteen intentional FireCircles where conscious leaders gather to collect the wisdom we need to realize the 2030 global sustainability goals and vision we have.

We can't wait to be with you for our semi-annual FireCircle event! Get ready to engage in an intimate and interactive experience where we practice deep listening, whole-self leadership and gathering collective wisdom. Together we will ask the questions of today for the future of tomorrow.
