Resource to Reciprocity: Reconnecting with Earth to change the way we do business
Our relationship with the Earth is the foundation upon which society sits. It shapes how we interact with each other, do business, and consume. In modern industrial society this relationship is built on a myth of human superiority, growth, independence, and commodification. In order to build a sustainable future, we must reimagine and embody our relationship with the planet.
This will be a virtual to in-body experience in which intrapreneurs experience the difference between resource-based and reciprocal-based relationships with the Earth to reimagine their personal and organizational roles in society. This experience will be participatory with guided visualization, somatic embodiment, personal inquiry, and group discussion to help integrate a reciprocal Earth narrative into their work and personal life.
