Conference

Speaking and Event Facilitation

Humankind is being led along an evolving course, through the migration of intelligences, and though we seem to be sleeping, there is an inner wakefulness, that directs the dream, and that will eventually startle us back to the truth of who we are.

- Rumi 13th Century

I speak about what it means to consciously and intentionally evolve and its potential to transform our planetary existence. I propose that it is a developmental process and one that needs to be understood, experienced and embodied in order to contribute positively to the future of life in the universe.

 

I share how two profound experiences in my life have shaped my awareness of the reality in which we currently exist and how they opened a window into the “truth of who we really are”.  I share how these experiences have led to my research and study in consciousness development, human and adult development, evolutionary science, unified science and leadership development.

 

My hope in sharing my insights and wisdom is that listeners recognise they are much more than they think they are and that they have the capacity to intentionally evolve, thereby creating greater meaning and purpose for their existence.

 

These views have been shared on numerous occasions with gatherings of futurists, social entrepreneurs, business and government leaders and leadership experts and practitioners.
