Fireside: Efficiency and the Discipline of Time and Space

What is the nature of time? Do time and space actually exist, or have we created our idea of time for our own convenience? Why do I feel so dictated and restricted by time? What does it mean to be aware of time? Why does time seem to pass faster or slower? How can I consistently be on time, and get things done on time? How should I handle interruptions and past concerns and emotions, to make the most efficient use of the present time? Can we transcend the limitations of time and space? What questions do you have about efficiency, time and space? Bring them into examination with others in a cosy dialogue.

This Dwelling session is free, and it is customary to purchase a beverage, snack or meal from the café.

Speaker Night: Efficiency and Discipline of Time and Space

Time – the life currency that cannot be reclaimed once lost. It is elusive because it waits for no man, yet many of us have little awareness of moments passing. Somewhere, a clock ticks. How do we manage our capacities and energies to make the most efficient use of time? What does it mean to live with urgency? Are you a master of time, or a slave to it? If time is indeed the most valuable commodity we have, how can we really understand its value to us and make that calculation a part of the choices we make in our everyday living? Join our speaker, Wei Ping who will share her journey of her relationship to time, and how to train yourself to be unconsciously competent about time management.

Fireside: Leadership, Discipleship and Fellowship

What is essential to being a good leader? Can a leader have multiple leadership styles? How do you break through the notion of a hierarchy and bond with your team when you’re at the top? When a team is new, as in a startup, how do you build a culture and create consensus and buy-in? What can I do to bond my team when they are so diverse? How can I inspire and empower my team to implement bold ideas? How do you transcend the fear of screwing up when you’ve taken on a role that’s bigger than you? Have a question about leadership, discipleship and fellowship? Bring it into examination with others in a cosy dialogue.

Speaker Night: Leadership, Discipleship and Fellowship

Leadership is about creating an inspiring vision of the future, motivating and inspiring people to engage with that vision, managing the delivery of that vision, and building and coaching the team to be effective in achieving that vision. How does one rise to become a leader? To be a good leader, does one need to have good discipleship, and to be a good follower? How does a leader build fellowship, mutuality and sharing among his people to create an environment for success? Journey with our speakers as they share their stories about the trials and tribulations of their leadership experience, the lessons and growth, and what it took for them to triumph in more than just a role.

The Hero’s journey begins when he or she listens to a call to adventure and a need for change – a quest that must be undertaken. Leaving the comforts of the ordinary world, the Hero enters an unknown world of tests, temptations, and even ‘death’.  Finally, in a decisive crisis, the Hero wins a victory and returns to the ordinary world, transformed. This narrative reflects a journey every human being undertakes if they choose. Discover what stage you are at on your Hero’s Journey. What has been your greatest personal challenge? How has it transformed you? What is your gift that you share with the world? Learn your own story and the stories of others as you take the time to recognize your own Hero within.

Speaker Night: The Hero's Journey

The Hero’s Journey is about living a fully realized life, by embarking on a deep inner journey of transformation – a path that leads one through great movements of separation, descent, ordeal, and return. More than just a mythological narrative that we find in our favorite stories such as Harry Potter and Star Wars, The Hero’s Journey is a deep truth that applies to every human story. Join our speaker, Judith Dawn Francis, as she brings wisdom and new understanding to the world from her extraordinary tale of courage on the day of the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center – a day she had to accept the call, face her greatest fear, and overcome her biggest challenge that would transform her life forever.

Thank you, everyone, for your overwhelming support for our events. We'd love to have you. However, we are at full capacity for this event and any new RSVPs will be on a waitlist. We appreciate your kind understanding that we won't be accepting any walk-in registrations.

Fireside: Dreams, Vision and Faith

Everyone has a dreaming aspect. By following and tapping into subtle feelings, uncontrolled movements, signals and synchronicities, we enter a ‘dreamdoor’ into an altered experience. There, it is possible to gain insight into the deeper meaning of what is calling to be discovered. By enhancing our awareness of these unfamiliar aspects of existence, we can bring wisdom to our everyday experiences, and change and enrich our relationship to ourselves, to others, and to the world. Join us for an experiential session on visionary dreaming, and in a facilitated discussion, find an answer or insights into a question you have been asking yourself.

This Dwelling session is free, and it is customary to purchase a beverage, snack or meal from the café.

Wisdom Session: Dreams, Vision and Faith

Did you ever have a recurring dream or a vision that you followed and sought to manifest? How did you know this was something you had to listen to? Was it written in the stars? Are you doing what you are supposed to be doing? When the journey becomes difficult and there are obstacles and your faith is shaken, what do you do to persist in manifesting your dream? How can you tell if things that present themselves along the way are part of the dream, or distractions? What are signs that tell you that you are on the right path? Says Paulo Coelho, “People are capable at any time in their lives, of doing what they dream of.” Join us in conversation about dreams, convictions, and what it takes to fulfill your personal legend.

Fireside: Beauty in the Moment

What is beautiful? Where does your concept of beauty come from? Is there beauty in negative situations? What happens to beauty as we age? The Japanese have a saying that translates to the idea that we live each moment only once: “ichi-go ichi-e”, meaning “one time, one meeting”. As nature unfolds in a kind of balanced harmony, all that is happening now cannot be happening in any other way. No two sunsets are ever the same. Even our objects of beauty are not the same each time we interact with them as they change, and we change. How do you appreciate beauty in the transience of things? Join us as we dwell in the experience of beauty and moments of intense presence.

This Dwelling session is free, and it is customary to purchase a beverage, snack or meal from the café.

Wisdom Session: Beauty in the Moment

Just as a beautiful flower represents the peak of the life force of a plant, so are we most beautiful when our entire being is fully expressed. However, so many of us are too busy trying to live up to what our cultures socially agree upon as the perfect beauty that we try to be something we are not. In our hope of being more adorned and adored, we have forgotten how to be ourselves. What is true beauty? If we could leave our beauty regimes for a moment, suspend our judgments and comparisons, and be more in touch with life and our deepest experiences, we might discover moments of intoxicating awe, tranquility and amazement. Join us as we discuss, share and uncover the essence of real beauty.

Fireside: Guilt, Forgiveness and Letting Go

If you had ever blamed yourself for something, how do you let go of the guilt that keeps you tied to the past? If it was as easy as affirming ourselves, letting go should be easy but why isn’t it? How do you forgive someone who shows no remorse? Or is it a matter of dealing with that part of us that is hurt, and for some reason holding on to the pain and suffering? How do you forgive your parents if they have hurt you in any way? Does holding onto feelings of animosity or cutting them off mean we’re cutting off parts of ourselves? Bring the questions you have to an intimate discussion on how to heal ourselves from guilt, shame and past hurts.

This Dwelling session is free, and it is customary to purchase a beverage, snack or meal from the café.

Speaker Night: Guilt, Forgiveness and Letting Go

At some point in our lives, we say or do things (or not) that hurt others or ourselves – from choosing to work long hours over spending time with our family, to saying something to punish someone, to eating four slices of cake in a row, to doing something we know is morally wrong. Guilt helps us to become better human beings by learning from mistakes and making a change for the better. How do we make amends, forgive ourselves and others, and let go of past deeds? Are there also times when we should not feel guilty, but do, and what causes us to feel that way? Join our speakers as we talk about overcoming the difficulties of guilt, shame, regret, forgiveness and letting go.

Fireside: Connecting Perspectives

Many of us find it difficult to be at ease when meeting someone for the first time. We end up talking about topics that seem acceptable to most people, afraid that we might appear too presumptuous if we got more personal. But that only leaves us yearning for deeper connections. What if, beyond “hello”, we can get to know another person so much better, and even help others through difficult conversations? As we continue exploring our edges and boundaries in relationships, come share and connect to different perspectives that will inspire you to dive into realms you never dreamed you would ever venture into with others.

Wisdom Session: Acceptance and Belonging

Belonging and feelings of deep acceptance are like being ‘home’ in a relationship. The need to give and receive affection, recognition and approval is such an integral part of what gives us our sense of self-worth and self-esteem. In what areas do you seek acceptance or fear rejection? How do you respond to your boundaries and edges when it comes to giving and receiving in relationships? Come explore, through sharing and an illuminating process, what it takes to connect deeply with others, and how it’s possible to overcome differences and barriers that prevent you from enjoying healthy, satisfying relationships.

Speaker Night: Dealing with Differences and Conflict

Conflict is a normal part of any healthy relationship. It arises when people disagree over opinions, ideals and needs, triggering strong emotions that can lead to feelings of hurt and disappointment. Not managing conflicts can lead to resentment and irreparable rifts over time. However, when handled in a respectful way, parties can deepen their understanding of one another, develop an appreciation of the differences they have, and strengthen the relationship. Join our speakers in a discussion on the nature of differences and conflict, how to transcend them, and how they can be opportunities for growth.

Fireside: Wonder

What does it mean to live life with a sense of wonder? How do we inject that childlike state of wonder into our adult life that expands our imagination and creativity in the everyday things we do? Is it possible to keep our sense of wonder all the time, even when things go wrong? How does one combat sentiments of certainty and rigidity? And how do you know when you have achieved a balance between the need for certainty and wonder? How do we know when we should listen to messages we get from flirts in our environment? Have a question about Wonder? Join the discussion and discover what more there is to Wonder.

Wisdom Session: Wonder

How often do we pause from our busy schedules, our judgements of why things are so, our need to be certain about outcomes, and allow ourselves to be surprised as we let the magic of life unfold? Are there things that life is meant to show us if we can just be present, open and curious? If we could walk through life with a sense of wonder, what wisdom could we tap into beyond our physical mind? What can we learn and appreciate through the interconnectedness and dance between ourselves and nature? Join us for a conscious walk and reclaim your sense of wonder – a quality we all have as children, that seems to fade as we grow older.

Speaker Night: Wonder

Remember a time you looked with childlike wonder at a spiderweb, or asked why your mom would kill a fish she brought home, or wondered why it was wrong to color grass black? And nobody could really understand you? Alas, spiderwebs have become a common sight, you’ve forgotten about your pet fish, and you no longer notice the color of grass in your garden at night. We have lost our ability to see goodness in the world, to be curious, to play, and to live life fearlessly. Instead, we’ve bought into the ways of the world, living dull, predictable lives. What would it be like if we could experience life in all its beauty and awesome wonder again?

Who is to judge whether an ego is healthy or not? Can a person really change who or what he is? Is it possible to heal an unhealthy ego? What is a healthy ego? How is self-esteem and confidence related to one’s ego? When I put my ego aside I feel suppressed. How can I strike a balance between being too critical and too nice? How do I use my ego positively for growth? Does altruism exist, and how do we know it’s not somebody’s ego? What can we do to be more aware of and responsible for our egos? Have a question about ego?

Speaker Night: Ego

What makes you, you? Where do you get your concept of self? Who are you, really? Are you your thoughts, your emotions, your body, or a bunch of traits that define your personality? While we identify ourselves with these, in the end they lead us to suffering because we only live within the confines of our conditioning. Ego can be destructive, yet fear of ego can stop us from growing. How do we jump over ourselves? Journey with Eugenia Gajardo, our distinguished speaker, in an inquiry about what lies beyond our self-identifications that can truly give us our sense of “I exist”, and the dance between discovering one’s inner power, arrogance, and personal responsibility and power.

Wisdom Session: Ego

“I can’t stand his ego! Who does he think he is?” “My ego just took a beating after my boss insulted me in front of my peers.” “I am lazy.” “We should be humble.” These are all statements that come from ego – a term we use loosely to refer to our own self-concept as distinct from others, which affects our self-esteem, self-worth, and in turn, our behaviors, our choices, and how we live our lives. Everyone has an ego, and it’s almost impossible to be devoid of our personality. The question then is what is my ego? What is its nature? And how do I live with it personally, and socially? In a fun and lighthearted interactive session, develop greater self-awareness by discovering the different parts of you.

Trust is such an important part of a relationship, yet many of us struggle with it for different reasons. How can I tell if someone is trustworthy? What can I do to get her to trust me? How do I continue to trust others as the boundaries of my relationships are tested over time? When do we trust the past, and when do we trust the future? Can I trust someone without making myself vulnerable? What is the source of distrust, and how do I know if it comes from me or the other person? How can I prevent mistrust from creeping into my relationships? Have a question about trust? Come share and uncover what there is to learn through different perspectives.

Wisdom Session: Trust
Jul
19
7:30 AM07:30

Wisdom Session: Trust

The best teams have a high degree of trust, where members have faith in one another to do the right thing. This means believing in another person’s integrity, strength, and ability to the degree that you’re willing to put yourself at some risk. Trust is essential to an effective team because it provides a sense of safety to share, collaborate, be creative and take risks towards achieving a common goal without fear of others protecting themselves or their own interests. When does trust become a reliance or pressure on others? Through a lighthearted evening of fun, games and insightful sharing, discover how trust is reflected in the way you interact with others in various aspects of life.

Cost goes towards rental of games ($3.30/hr) and F&B (menu prices) from Settlers Café. Dwelling does not charge any fees to attend this session.

Speaker Night: Trust

“Trust is conditional.” “Trust has to be earned.” “Trust takes time to build.” “Trust the process.” “I’ll trust them if they pass my test.” What is your concept of trust, and when did it get formed? Fundamentally, what makes you trust, or not trust? How do you trust what is unknown? We believe that good relationships are built on mutual trust and respect, but what if you trust someone who turns out not to be honest? We have probably all been hurt. Can trust that is lost be rebuilt? Join our speakers as we share our journeys of trust and distrust, and facilitate a discussion on the nature, value, and (how to get around) the paradox of trust in relationships.

How have your patterns in commitment either helped or hindered you in various aspects of life that are important to you?
