Next up, our first Regenerative Evening in 2024 will be on 25 January : Storytelling Workshop on Rewriting the Narrative
Stories and beliefs shape our current reality, and hold the power to change it.
What are the dominant cultural narratives in Western societies? And what possible alternative ways of seeing could we practice instead? How can we let go of old stories to make room for something new? Can we create new narratives to invite the wild possibilities of a regenerative future?
At this event we will explore what dominant stories shape our current realities. What stories and beliefs do we perceive to be true in our industrial growth society, and what possible alternative views and truths could we explore?
And what if the unraveling of our current systems doesn't just ask for new stories, but is also an invitation to be without solid answers for a while. Can we experience uncertainty and surrender to the potent place between stories?
During this evening we will explore the power of stories, deep time perspectives and the wild possibilities of not (yet) knowing. We will do (group) practices, listen to stories and poetry.
The evening is hosted by Esther van Bezooijen and Marjorie Lumet. Esther has worked as a freelance copywriter and sustainability communications professional. She is currently exploring the possibilities of a regenerative culture through self-study and visiting projects, while using her own writing to share her insights. Marjorie is a mindfulness and self-compassion coach and trained facilitator of the Work that Reconnects & Active Hope.
To help us plan the evening, please register for a ticket. The minimum group size is 5 people, and the maximum is 10. (You help us a lot by registrering as early as possible.) The evening will be in both English and Dutch.
Please note this is an evening about cultural narratives and exploring new idea's and perspectives. It is not a writing workshop.
