Developing Organizational Creativity, Leadership Skills and Team Performance in Nature | 在大自然中培育組織創意、領導技巧與團隊表現

Vision Quests, solo retreats in Nature and Sacred Passages have been the primary source of creative renewal for many human cultures. For example, Vision Quests conducted in the Native American Way involve a period of deep preparation with the help of a qualified shaman, teacher or guide, followed by a wilderness solo at a sacred place in Nature. Normally, the solo time is for three nights and four days. During that time, there is no contact with other humans, one stays inside a specific circular area and often there is a simple fast from food.

Democratic Dialogue | 民主式對話

Green Parties and civil society movements convened in Dakar, Senegal this April 2012 to discuss the world’s critical intractable issues of today, and it was at this Global Greens Congress that I experienced the connection between dialogue and democracy.  From these discussions among 400+ delegates emerged resolutions declaring our common voice on clean technology, the rights of indigenous peoples, sustainable development, LGBT rights, land justice and biodiversity, marine ecosystems, the occupy movement, Syria, Tibet, Western Sahara, Greece, and many more.  The following article

Modern-Day Myths | 現代神話

Learning models and development frameworks have been a staple of my education - it dawned on me this July however, that models like the ones I'm learning serve as our modern-day myths continuing the age-old attempt to give metaphorical form to the transcendent mysteries of life. 

I invite you to explore with me the meaning-making of mythology and their relevance to our individual & collective journey.
