Ecoresilience Leadership Principles and Practices with Pandora Thomas
This weekend will support participants in deepening their understanding and personal alignment with the 20 principles of ecoresilience laid out in the Introductory workshop.
Participants will also continue to better understand their "ECO (Energized/Connected/Organized)-toolkit" and what strengths they bring to this work.
The group will work together through the following concepts and questions:
• Understanding Zone 00-The beloved animal self
• What stories do and don't serve you
• What cultural legacies are you linked to that you might draw upon to deepen your ecoresilience journey?
• How can your work be rooted in culturally competent models?
• What inspiring models exist that integrate cross-cultural ecoresilience and regenerative community design?
• How can biomimicry guide your understanding of non-human patterns of resilience that are available to pull from for leadership development?
