Leading from our Hearts, and the Emerging Future: Deepening into Personal Purpose (Online)

October 20, 2020 @ 10:00 am - December 9, 2020 @ 6:00 pm


“Before you tell your life what you intend to do with it, listen for what it intends to with you….” Parker J Palmer

A time of crisis like this one, as many have commented, presents a great opportunity for reflection on what is essential to us and where we place our precious life energy. For some this may mean a deepening reaffirmation, for others a reset of direction; either way, clarity and strength around how we move forward is needed more than ever in these challenging times.

The purpose of this transformational online community is to help you step forward and deepen more fully into your unique personal purpose, gifts and the work you are here to do. It will support you to identify the contribution that your deeper self is calling you to make and help you embody more of your true potential in your life, your work, your organisation and in the world.

(This online community is a foundational part of our family of Systemic Leadership programmes, giving people the next generation skillsets to build, lead and transform purpose-led, regenerative and sustainable businesses that are fit for the 21st century).


Who is it for?

We are inviting leaders, entrepreneurs, change agents, coaches and indeed anyone who wants greater support in stepping forward and deepening into their purpose in their work at this extraordinary time.

How will you Benefit from the Programme?
  • Gain deeper clarity on your vocation or unique purpose, by ‘listening’ to your heart’s desire and passions, your particular strengths and capacities as well as your career ‘thread’ so far.
  • Free yourself from any invisible loyalties or dynamics that may be holding you back, including internal obstacles and blocks in your relationships with others.
  • Create momentum for making changes by drawing on the support of other participants who are facing similar challenges to you.
  • Identify unseen opportunities and resources that will strengthen you as you step into your true work more fully.
  • Gain greater alignment between your personal calling and organisation’s purpose
  • Adopt specific concrete practices in your everyday life, to sustain the transformation you wish to make while dealing with arising obstacles & resistance
  • Deepen your understanding of the nature of living systems and the part they play in your lives
  • Belong to a growing community of practitioners who want to lead from their hearts in service in the world

What People Say

Working with Ed, Charlie and Deborah on their ‘Deepening Your Purpose’ programme has been a joy. The programme was beautifully designed and structured, elegantly facilitated and well held. And not only did I learn that constellations work can be done really well online and through a screen (who’d have thought!) but I also found that my purpose emerged slowly but clearly through the weeks – and I leave Week 8 with clarity and a sense of readiness for what I think I’m here for and a statement of my purpose that feels both true, energising and useful”

Helena Clayton, Coach

Generative and powerful – unequivocal five stars. This is a graceful and surprisingly potent programme where new insight and awareness springs from the generous and skilfully-held space that Ed, Charlie and Deborah create and sustain. Highly recommended.

Matt Fairbrass, OD Consultant

I am holding my thread, it is strong and alive. I am a part of the fabric of humanity. I dive in with joy to weave the beautiful pattern that is mine to create. Thank you for the gentle yet potent crafting of what has been a truly transformational journey of discovery. I am certain the time spent within this programme will remain one of the pivotal experiences of my life and I’m deeply grateful to have crossed paths with it.
