Speaker Nights 2019

Speaker Nights are a great place to begin an inquiry on a life topic, through inspiring shares by ordinary people who lead extraordinary lives. Through their stories and journeys, get a glimpse into aspects about the topics we may not have explored. Sharing is candid, raw and real, reflecting values such as truth, respect, and wonder that fade as we grow older.

Stay tuned for news of our next Speaker Night. Meanwhile, visit our Dwelling Facebook Page to see what we're discussing, and share your thoughts and experiences with the Dwelling community.

Speaker Night: An Invitation to Wellness

Sometimes it comes as an urge, a prompting. It may seem irrational but yet your heart knows, and you cannot say no. It can take you across the world to follow that call and to give up all that is familiar and known. In all great journeys of self-discovery and transformation, one needs to have faith even though one may not be sure that this is the right path to walk. Join crystal healer Sylvie Louisfert as she shares her crystalline journey from the French mountains to Singapore, and meeting her teacher in Hawaii. Be inspired by her extraordinary experiences with the mineral kingdom from her journey through her own transformation and sharing of fascinating crystal stories.

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.

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.

Speaker Night: The Hero's Journey
Jun

7:30 PM19:30

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.

Speaker Night: Guilt, Forgiveness and Letting Go

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.

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.

Speaker Night: Wonder

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?

Speaker Night: Ego
Sep

7:30 AM07:30

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.

Speaker Night: Trust
Jul

7:30 AM07:30

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.

Speaker Night: Commitment
May

7:30 AM07:30

Speaker Night: Commitment

What does it mean to commit, whether to yourself, or to someone else, or to a chosen field? Why do so many people fear commitment? What are we committing to when we say ‘yes’ to something or to someone either willingly or unwillingly? And when things go wrong do we push on or hold back, and how does either consequence impact us? How do we stay committed to the choices we made? Come hear from Suchi, our speaker who is no stranger to Dwelling, and expand your notion of what commitment is as she shares about what it takes to persist in one’s chosen endeavors through the most difficult moments.

Speaker Night: Passion

7:30 AM07:30

Speaker Night: Passion

It’s something everyone wants to find – their passion. But what is it and how do you find it? How do you know you are passionate about something? Is passion a burning flame of enthusiasm, or is it something more? It’s easy to think that when we’ve lost our enthusiasm for something we are no longer passionate, and we look for something else hoping to find it there. What eludes us is that we might be experiencing passion without even knowing it. Dwelling invites you to join us on the road to discovering passion as our speakers share their experiences so we can deepen our understanding of what passion really is.

Speaker Night: Simplicity

8:30 AM08:30

Speaker Night: Simplicity

What is simplicity? Without a deeper understanding of it, we could pursue a lifestyle of simplifying our environments and glorify the idea of minimalism only to find that the once decluttered space fills up again. There is more to simplicity than just eliminating things. How can simplicity help in decision-making, better understanding in communications, and make for a richer life that flows? Join our talented speaker, Sean Chua, as he shares useful and applicable principles around the process of getting to simplicity. As head of concept of a company that creates explainer videos, Sean condenses complex topics into 3 minutes.

Speaker Night: How to Thrive in Times of Strife

When something in our environment opposes us, it creates a disturbance within ourselves, and we feel upset. What if there was method in the madness? What if nature’s plans for us were just what we need to grow, to better ourselves, and learn to live with for a fuller life experience? If we could understand the laws of nature, and that it is ever-changing in its own system and order, we might begin to appreciate the world, other people, and ourselves better. Join our speaker as she shares her process of finding zen and balance in the midst of adversity.

We stand in awe of those who defy the limits of themselves and the world to move the human race forward. Nelson Mandela, Gandhi, Albert Einstein and Steve Jobs have all demonstrated the triumph of the human spirit, reminding us that we have the potential to transcend our known reality to shift paradigms and transform the way we see and live life. What about the rest of us? How can you fulfill your greatest potential, realize your wildest dreams, and impact communities or billions of people around the world?

Speaker Night: How to Succeed in Anything

Various studies indicate that discipline and will are more important for achieving academic success, maintaining physical and mental health, better savings behavior, and financial security. Even Leonardo da Vinci said, “The height of man’s success is gauged by his self-mastery; the depth of his failure by his self-abandonment.” So where do our discipline and will come from? How do we summon them up when things get tough? Why do some of us have more of it than others? Hear our speakers share about how they cultivate discipline and will to succeed in what they do.

Speaker Night: How to Live a Life of Greatness

How often do we rob ourselves of the chance to be great, and to live life fully? There are two ways to approach life: to live bound by the circumstances given us, or to live a life of greatness. Either way, we will die; so what really matters is how we live. Living a great life takes courage. It forces us to face our truth and risk relationships as we walk a road many hesitate to follow. What does it take to go to battle with ourselves, and give up what we are for who we could become? Hear from our speakers how they went all out because the power of love was greater than their fear.

Speaker Night: Purpose and Direction

Have you ever asked yourself what your purpose is in life, what you're meant to do, or where you're going? How does knowing your purpose and direction help, and how do you go about finding it? Is it something you already know, or something that gradually emerges over the years? How do you know you've found it, and does it really matter if you never do? Join our speakers in honest sharing about their search for purpose, losing themselves and finding themselves, as we dwell on one of the most crucial topics known to man that gives us our sense of existence, fulfilment, and expression in this world.

Speaker Night: Motivation and Drive

Everyone has dreams they would like to fulfill but it takes motivation and drive to sustain the efforts required to get there. According to Dr Anders Ericsson who coined the phrase, “It takes 10 years and 10,000 hours to become an expert”, motivation is the most significant predictor of success. So where then does motivation come from, and what drives us to keep going till we manifest what we set out to achieve? How can we overcome obstacles like fatigue, stress, boredom, and distractions that prevent us from succeeding? Join us as our speakers share about their experiences and how they found the motivation and drive to achieve success, change, and personal growth.

Aug

Speaker Night: Compassion and Love

Compassion is considered to be one of the greatest virtues. Empathy, love, and kindness are often closely associated. Acts of compassion typically manifest in the way we identify with others in need and go out of our way to help such as through charitable causes and spiritual practices. What compels us to do so? Are what we consider to be altruistic, kind acts of compassion really beneficial and forwarding? What do we derive from them? What is compassion? Hear from our speakers as they share about their take on compassion and love through their experiences that will allow us to examine more consciously how this virtue plays out in our lives.

Speaker Night: Acceptance and Belonging

Belongingness is such a fundamental human need. Most people need and want to belong to groups and places such as families, friends, workplaces, and interest groups. Belonging and feelings of deep acceptance are like being ‘home’ in a relationship. Were there times you felt you didn’t belong, or felt lonely in a crowd? How did you overcome those moments? Come see through the stories and journeys of our speakers as they share—raw and real—about fitting in, finding the acceptance of others, and most importantly, the courage to be their truest self.

Speaker Night: Responsibility, Compromise and Sacrifice

Responsibility – everyone grapples with it, yet few people are able to grasp it. We say that we should be responsible for our own self, our work, and at times others. But for things that seem to be beyond our control, how are we still responsible? Why do we sometimes find ourselves in positions of compromise or sacrifice when we strive to be a responsible person in a role such as a mother, spouse, or student? Join our speakers as they share about the joys and struggles of responsibility from their experience as a parent, partner, employee, leader, and more.

We will start providing drinks from 7pm. Please come to register and join us for networking.

Choice, Commitment and Freedom
Feb

8:30 AM08:30

Choice, Commitment and Freedom

Dwelling starts 2015 with our first topic of the year – Choice, Commitment and Freedom.

Like a stone falling into water, there is a ripple effect with every choice made in life. From mundane choices like what to have for lunch to life choices on who we want to marry, every choice involves a commitment to a course of action. Have you truly examined the impact that your choices have on your life? Are you at a crossroads now on what life choice to make for yourself? And in making a choice, are you committing to something that limits you or sets you free?

Join us round the fire with our speakers as they share and discuss the choices they have made – from relocating to different countries, to choices in career and love, to choices that determine other people’s lives. Find out what it means to choose powerfully, to make a commitment and through that commitment, to be truly free.

Speaker Night: Direction

“How do I know I’m going in the right direction?” That’s a question often asked as we move along this spacetime continuum called life. What are the signs we look out for that tell us we’re on the right track? Is what we call destiny in fact designed? Hear from our speakers how they went about finding their direction in life, the signs they saw along the way, and the meaningful coincidence they found in experiences. Come with your own dreams, goals, and questions as we end off the year with an inquiry into what direction you would like to take in the New Year.

Why do you travel? Hear from our speaker, Ryan Paugh, who took a 15-month sabbatical from his corporate job to travel the world. Share his inspiring journey of breaking out of self and exploring worlds beyond the one given to us, and find out how traveling outside has led to an inner journey filled with discovery and wisdom.

Speaker Night: Leadership and Power

Many are called, but few are chosen because it is tough. Then again, it is also the most rewarding path that one can take. What are the qualities of a good leader, beyond the role expectations we often talk about? What does being a leader mean? Are leaders born or made? What kind of leader would you follow, and what kind of leader are you striving to become? And at the most fundamental level, how do you become a leader in your own life? See through the eyes of our speakers who have walked a journey of learning to become a leader, the battles they’ve fought, the defeats, the victories, and the priceless lessons learnt about everyday leadership.
