GATHERING: Weaving Inneraction – Awakening our Courageous Hearts

GATHERING: Weaving Inneraction – Awakening our Courageous Hearts

Awakening our heart space, where we encounter and learn to embody courage for our life.

In this year’s Weaving Inneraction gathering we are creating a heart space for true encounter. For this we will let ourselves be guided and inspired by the virtue of courage. The root of the word courage is heart. If we want to find our way in this world, which seems to be confronting us from all directions with ever more fearful scenarios for the future, we will need to take heart and be ready to use our strength and not remain passive towards life. Inspired by Rudolf Steiner, we ask ourselves: “How can I not withdraw in a timid way from the things which life asks from me, but be prepared to take myself in hand and know how to act when it is necessary?” Courage is connected with a healthy life of feeling. We can therefore also ask ourselves: “How do I create a healthy life of feeling out of which I can develop bravery at the right moment?” 

Our intention is to provide a time to explore these questions and the questions you bring, to further develop the work that we began in last year’s gathering. Our hope is that we, from an inner balance can be active towards a healthy society. Through a carefully and purposefully designed schedule we will have the opportunity to be supported through the experience of different activities, and together generate a heart space for true encounter. Guest contributors and workshop leaders will guide and energize us on this journey.

Our gathering will take place in the week leading up to the festival of Michaelmas, considered to be a time when we inwardly prepare for the coming cold and darkness of winter. Emerson College will nourish and support us in this collective work with its beautiful and peaceful environment, its healthy food and warm character. The time of this gathering is traditionally also a celebration of the end of summer with the harvest of many gifts the earth provides for us. For the participants of Weaving Inneraction, that will mean being served delicious and freshly prepared, all organic meals for lunch and supper every day. Most of which will consist of vegetables, fruits and herbs just harvested from the Emerson College biodynamic garden. These qualities that our amazing venue Emerson College has to offer, a group of highly qualified guest contributors (with some new and returning), the dynamic Weaving Inneraction Team and more will all assist us in the supported experience of diving into our heart space where we encounter and learn to embody courage for our life.
