1st salon: on Living in Mastery and Wisdom University, conducted by Teresa Collins

Teresa Collins on Living at Mastery and Wisdom University, hosted by Peter Merry

Teresa Collins is CEO of Wisdom University and one of those people who combines a great inner presence, intelligent mind and an ability to apply that to systems in the world – a great example of Integral in practice! She spent many years working closely with Barbara Marx Hubbard, after which she has gone on to inspire Wisdom University to its next phase of life. I have got to know her in that context and have been touched and moved by her teaching, both live and recently through the 3 month online retreat on Living in Mastery. She is in the Netherlands for a few days and I didn't want to miss the opportunity for you to have a chance to get to know her and her work. Her bio says: “Teresa brings a rare blend of dynamic presence, a whole systems strategic mind, and a large loving heart to the endeavors that call her into service. At the core of her calling is a commitment to empowering learning communities of all shapes and sizes to thrive in these profoundly potentiated times.” I can certify to that, and hope you can join us.

2nd lounge: HOME; an experiential salon about living from your origin led by Lenne Gieles

When you live from your origin Being from within determines what you do and what you don't do and you are no longer fixated on – and at the mercy of – the demands of the outside world. This Being is the foundation of your day and it fills your activities with peace and attention.

Every person intuitively remembers his wholeness as a feeling of home. This salon is an invitation to directly experience this deepest knowledge again, to make it concrete and integrate it into daily life. As a unique individual, and with each other.

Direct experience is broader than just feeling; it is feeling, embedded in awareness and it encompasses all dimensions of reality: from low to high, from form to origin, from resistance to openness. By taking yourself as you are and accepting what comes your way, you merge what you feel and who feels; you show a complete willingness to live. You develop an increasingly subtle perception, and recognize behavioral patterns that cause separation. You increasingly choose to live from your origin and in connection. This 'being who you are' gives you fulfillment: you are at home.

Lenne Gieles expresses a direct path to life from your origin in a clear, close way. She wrote a book about this and developed the Essentie coaching® method. She provides training and education to coaches, therapists and managers. For a taste, see the video on her website:
