Integral Healing and Empowerment to Co-Create a Regenerative Future: An Introductory Seminar on the Home for Humanity Story
5 July 2020: This interactive seminar presented a transformative journey of how our homes can grow into the potential to heal and empower.
This panel was convened by the Dialogues en Humanité 2020 (Humanity Dialogues), in partnership with Home for Humanity, TRANS4M, Theatre of Transformation Academy, and with the Truth and Reconciliation Citizens Action Weekend.
Alexander Schieffer and Rama Mani shared their personal journeys that led to the creation of their Home for Humanity, followed by a dialogue among remarkable worldmakers present in this zoom-based seminar.
After opening the conference through inspirational poems out of the book “Hibiscus: Poems that Heal and Empower”, Alexander Schieffer and Rama Mani shared the story of how Home for Humanity grew, in the very Home for Humanity style. As such, Alexander Schieffer and Rama Mani shared their own story by associating their passion with the words: Unity, Earth, Culture, and Wisdom, and finally shared how their stories and dreams were combined.
Both declared that they have always felt great sorrow by expressions of inhumanity. Nature, for them, has come into their lives as a way of healing and empowerment. While having had all kinds of cultures present at the panel, Alexander Schieffer and Rama Mani explained how each culture has its own voice and every single one is needed to restore our humanity and to co-create a new planetary civilisation. Bringing all these cultures together, by hearing every voice and societal knowledge base, regenerative and inclusive solutions can be co-created.
After this introductory part, participants were invited to share each of their own homes. As a co-creating exercise, each worldmaker present was requested to answer several questions related to the keywords: Unity, Earth, Culture, and Wisdom, and how those aspirations can be translated in their lives and homes. By opening up the stage, an atmosphere of sharing and co-learning was created. Thus, “wisdom travelled” around the world and inspiring thoughts were spoken.
“Shakti Leadership” Author Nilima Bhat from India, participant in the seminar and co-convener of the Truth and Reconciliation Citizens Action Weekend, brought the essence of this rich and interactive experience to the point, by stating:
“I cannot boil the Ocean for change, but I can boil my cup of the Ocean. We can change the world, one home at a time. Starting with mine.”
