Home for Humanity’s Living Curriculum: Focusing on the Humanity Charter theme: EDUCATION - Cultivating the Wisdom of Life
“It’s not about me, it’s about what I can contribute, co-creatively with others” “In a leadership role one is there to facilitate calling, competences and self-organisation”
Helen Eriksen speaks to us with invigorating energy and infectious conviction from her seaside cottage in Denmark about the emerging consciousness of ‘we’. She outlines the new kind of leadership the world needs today that is no longer all about ‘me’ but, rather, about ‘we’. It is leadership based on contribution and service, and not about self-interest. She enables us to understand the holographic nature of our existence within the universe, and to engage creatively - and joyfully - in the profound changes underway on Earth. Drawing on her 30 years of experience as a visionary author, keynote speaker and business psychologist, and her cutting edge research straddling the frontiers of science, psychology, health and spirituality, she stimulates our capacity for mindfulness and intuition, to hear our inner calling and shape our true destiny at this time of systemic change. The interview ends with a delightful visit of her sea-side home embedded in nature, that serves as the retreat centre for her transformational seminars.
BIOGRAPHY: Helen Eriksen is a business psychologist and one of Northern Europe’s most sought after keynote speakers and seminar leaders. She is the author of numerous cutting-edge books at the frontiers of science, psychology, health and spirituality, including ‘Giving While Growing: The Fruit Tree Strategy’. For the past 30 years, she has taught courses and educational sessions to raise awareness about how to reduce stress and create increased wellbeing, meaning and joie-de vivre, personally and professionally. She designs and leads tailor-made transformational processes for companies and institutions based on her profound research and understanding of the holographic nature of ecosystems.
About the Living Curriculum: This conversation with Helen Eriksen was conducted by Leandra Bräuninger and Stefanie Kriech, Members of the Home for Humanity Team 2020. The team worked on the creation of a Home for Humanity Living Curriculum – a task that was embedded in the 2020 “Reshaping International Development” Course at the University of St. Gallen, directed by the co-founders of Home for Humanity. This Living Curriculum is part of the HumanivEARTHsity Programme in Transformative Education of Home for Humanity.
