Trusting ourselves and each other; without agenda or defined outcomes or targeted results, we take the exploration of entrepreneurial far beyond the suffocating confines of a business interpretation and move it much closer to home… to the core of who we choose to be in the world… significantly altering how we see the profound connection between ourselves and the world in which we live.
Changing our world begins with changing ourselves. Women stand at a powerpoint in this time in history...a place where we find that we ARE the difference that we seek! The Emerging Futures and Entrepreneurial Women conversation transforms lives and awakens us to become powerful attractors for the creation of a world of our own design.
Those who have experienced this four-day retreat enthusiastically share their experience with you, that you might awaken to the gateway that you already are to your own future. Consider what your life can become should you choose to awaken to and engage your own slumbering potential!
I can create differently in the world... Susan Bremner
To be entrepreneurial is no longer focussed on my state of doing in the world. Now my attention is on my state of being and on discovering what can be created in my life from this state of mind. I must cross the line from standing in the Newtonian (therapy model) viewpoint over into consistently living my life on the Quantum paradigm (autopoietic) side. I realize that I cannot get to where I want to be in my life unless I do so.
If I continue on my current path, I can create a sustainable life by staying in my incremental, slow paced, yet ever increasing life creation box. Unfortunately, my box sized creations will only develop as far as what my current level of thinking, within the limits of my environment, will allow. No wonder life, still confined within a box, becomes repetitive, habitual and boring!
I can create differently in the world by taking a giant leap over to being the signal that I am in the world. Then, my creations become full of unexpected and unlimited possibilities. My future begins to emerge as I listen to the impulses that come from within and as I begin to create from the presence that I am.
I realize that there will be uncertainty and chaotic sensations (bifurcations) in my body, throughout this process, as I shape shift from who I am to who I am becoming. Yet, the WEL-Systems® way of living has been the only pathway to the changes that have enabled me to have my life back. Through the Emerging Futures: Entrepreneurial Women experience, I am now awakened to the evolutionary potential for creating the future life that I want!
Engaging 100% for manifesting! Annick Chenier
I discovered more deeply in my experience of myself that being entrepreneurial is about engaging 100% of the force that I am toward manifesting a life that reflects the unique expression that I am meant to be in the world.
I realized I was functioning at 30% capacity and that the other 70 % was being used to manage my past. Through this experience, I was able to step fully into the mindset of leaving the struggle from the past behind and focus my attention on creating MY future, no BOX, moment to moment.
I now GET that being entrepreneurial is a state of mind out of which my life is created and I now know inside my body how to choose ME in the moment to create an emerging future.
The Magic of Round 2! Lucy Hensel
Now I know that I will live MY life.
The first EF:EW was really important for me. The second one was crucial. After almost 60 years of not feeling connected, of not being connected to myself, it’s wonderful today to know deep inside me that:
The ‘process’ was the same both times, and it works for me. There’s the intensity and the relentlessness of the EW:EF conversations that are stimulating and enlivening; there’s the empowering experience of fully opening up to myself and others, and it is ‘easy’ within the safety of a supportive, interesting, humourous and adventurous group of women. Being part of a small gathering of entrepreneurial spirits exploring the creative state of being, seeing where the conversations take us and what ‘an entrepreneurial state of mind’ means for each of us as a force in our lives – it’s hard to beat that!
My experience... was incredible! Marie Smith
My experience during the Emerging Futures: Entrepreneurial Women was incredible! Not to say that it was all fun - trust me! - I was pressing up against a lot, as was everyone else in the program. Yet as pioneers will, all were up to it: pressing up against our own truths.
Emerging Futures: Entrepreneurial Women has given me clarity about living from a different worldview in the cells of my body and not seducing myself back into the other perspective. It is much easier now for me, and also makes way more sense to me. I now live fully in my life. My life is filled with fun and amazing people that I choose to invite in my life.
Shedding Skins Lucy Hensel
The biggest ‘outcome’ from the EF:EW experience last week is that I know, and more importantly feel-in-my-body that my days of cautiously slithering (often away from opportunities), of fearfully negociating my way through badlands and of dodging perceived or actual dangers in the landscape are over. Enough! No need! Done that! It doesn’t work for me! From now on: I connect with mySelf, I stay connected and awake, I choose, and my landscape/world will unfold before me and I will move into it, engaged and engaging.
