Salon: 'Double Healix'

Double Healix

conducted by Manfred van Doorn

Monday, September 10 from 19.00:21.30 PM – XNUMX:XNUMX PM

Location: Center Venwoude, Vuurse Steeg 1, Lage-Vuursche

You are cordially invited to the salon with Manfred van Doorn about Double Healix.

Manfred has developed this leadership model with the aim of contributing to a further enrichment of the inner and social life. He is convinced that together we are on our way to an Ecology of Meaning in which we put care for the soul, for each other and for our living environment first.

The Double Healix model is based on Joseph Campbell's Journey of the Hero. We can see the twelve stages of this Hero's Journey in our life course as a whole, but also in smaller cycles of our personality development; over and over again and hopefully on an ever higher level of awareness, responsibility and compassion. It is an upward spiral to wholeness (helix + healing = healix).

In this salon Manfred will introduce the Double Healix model in a nutshell (until the break) using inspiring images from films, documentaries and new media.

After the break there will be an interactive exchange about what the model has brought about and what is next for us to do.

Manfred van Doorn is an internationally active leadership trainer and originally a psychologist-psychotherapist. He uses his vast experience, people skills and humor to help leaders become the center of their strengths and talents. He is known for his love and deep knowledge of movies, which he uses extensively to support leadership development. Manfred dedicates his life to integrating inner and outer leadership and helping to establish an Ecology of Meaning. His most recent books are: Reinventing the Wheel – Cycles and Levels of Leadership and This is the And – The Future for Beginners. He wrote this last book in collaboration with his son Victor van Doorn.

In October 2012, Manfred van Doorn will start a new leadership cycle 'Vision on Training.' Using impressive film fragments, he takes you on a journey through the various domains of human development and leadership during eight meetings. He makes the connection with the transition we are going through to a sustainable society and the multifaceted leadership that is required for this.
