POLITICAL POD – Harnessing the Discipline of Vision to Create Climate Solutions & Sustainability

Vision is a powerful tool to help bring about the specifics of a sustainable, climate-safe, and just world, and to find, or create, our most meaningful work in service of the world we would like to see.  Research increasingly finds a connection between the power of the mind and what happens in our life. It is our responsibility to vision and articulate what the details of the world we want looks like. Vision taps into right-brain thinking. As Donella Meadows said in Envisioning a Sustainable World,  “The process of building a responsible vision of a sustainable world is not a rational one. It comes from values, not logic.”  

In this workshop, we will:

·       be introduced to the discipline of vision and why it is important.  

·       be led through a guided visualization to experience the use of visioning,

·       experience how visioning shifts our chosen work, and how we want to show up or be, in our real-time future.  

There will be time to journal, debrief in small breakout groups, then reassemble to share, ask questions and explore the use of visioning together.
