What we're about
This is a group for anyone interested in teaming up to create a hub for the Theory U course provided by the Presencing Institute. The course is free and requires 90 minutes of time per week. It is focuses on how the quality of awareness, attention or consciousness of the participants of any project directly impacts the results of the endeavor. You can learn and practice "to be the change you want to see in the world".
"This is our moment. If you feel moved to make a difference towards helping to shift the global social field from absencing to presencing, here is one way how you can participate. You can join the u.lab—a global online-offline platform for prototyping the ego-to-eco shift in business, government, and education. The u.lab drew 75,000 participants in its first year (2015), which is an inspiring testament to how many people today are just waiting for the opportunity to redirect their attention fromreacting against absencing (the cycle of destruction) toward activating the field of presencing (the cycle of co-creation).
An introductory (90-minute, self-paced) course (https://www.edx.org/course/awareness-based-systems-change-u-lab-how-mitx-15-671-0x) begins on August 15th, 2016, followed by a globally facilitated version (https://www.edx.org/course/u-lab-leading-emerging-future-mitx-15-671-1x) that will convene tens of thousands of change makers worldwide that begins September 8th, 2016."
