Ever found yourself contemplating on how might your “livelihood” support your wellbeing and also be a tool for contributing positively to the society? Ever wondered how you may integrate your work life more deeply with values?
To explore further, we invite you to join a week-long virtual immersion: a collective exploration space, with like-minded friends from across the globe, coming together with the shared intention of being the change we wish to see in the world, in small or large ways.
Some of the questions we will hold in our circle:
Along with outer growth, can business be a tool for our inner growth and wellbeing? Where everything has a price, how might we not lose touch with the “priceless” in our lives? In rapidly changing business, technology and societal context, how do we skilfully hold the emerging nuances of “ethical business”? Is it possible to cultivate deep relationships in a business context -- Can Profit and Love coexist? Can business support inner and outer transformation? And more!
A bit about the design principles--
"Many to many" Learning. Pods are designed to blur boundaries and hierarchies. Everyone is a student and everyone is a teacher. Beyond themed content of business, everyone’s perspectives add value to our whole; the unique convergence of all our vantage points and life experiences creates a rich field of peer-learning. Anyone in the inquiry of values in business is equally welcome - whether an employee in a corporate, or a small business owner, or a startup whiz, or a business leader.
Holding questions. The intent of this pod is to collectively hold space for an appreciative inquiry more than trying to identify quick formulaic answers. By holding the questions sincerely, in its nuances and complexities, we start allowing ourselves and others to see new possibilities, experiment and find our own answers gradually to serve our own unique contexts.
Internet for “Inner-net” -- The immersion will be hosted on a private feed on Pod tech platform, a non-commercial, volunteer-run offering of ServiceSpace. More details about the process in the timeline below.
If you are moved to explore these questions collectively with like minded friends globally, then we welcome you to join this co-creative experiment. More on our timeline, below.
||April 4th: Orientation Call
We'll start with a virtual orientation call to connect all Pod participants and volunteers and to take you through the process of daily prompts and other pod details.
Time: 90 minutes (7:30PM PST)
||April 5-10: Diving Deep! (+ Bonus Practice Sessions)
For these 6 days, all of us will get a daily email prompt with a "head" reading and a "hands" practice, and a "heart" reflection, curated by the volunteers. Everyone is expected to engage in the daily exercises and then submit our reflections, on a private feed. As you submit your responses, you'll also get to read other participant responses.
Time: 1 hour per day. Although, its self-regulated with plenty to scope to go deeper if you spend more time than that. :)
||April 11th: Closing Call
We'll host a virtual gathering to marinate our collective learnings, hear from couple guest speakers, and brainstorm on how we might support continue to support each other in this direction. Open to all who have completed prior prompts.
Time: 3 hours (7:30PM PST)
