2.10 Theory U Session with John Seex and Colin Tracy (open to members, ex members, friends of Shambhala and by invitation to non members only):

"Our capacity to pay attention co-shapes the world. What prevents us from attending to situations more effectively is that we aren't fully aware of that interior condition from which our attention and actions originate - our personal and collective blind spots. Theory U enables us, personally and in organisations to shift awareness, connect with the highest future possibilities, and strengthen the capacity to co-shape the future. We will offer contemplations and exercises that will facilitate the co-shaping of the future of our Sangha."
