We at GEN are reaching out to you in this time of uncertainty when all of us are being affected by the coronavirus – directly or indirectly. Many of us are staying at home and losing work. We or our loved ones might be ill. We watch ourt health systems being overstretched. Those of us living in communities & ecovillages might have the extra security of shared food gardens, mutual care and solidarity. But also, many communities and ecovillages are deeply entwined with visitor streams and facing drastic cuts to their economies.
It’s easy to become disconnected when we face inner fears and outer social distancing. Yet, the coronavirus teaches us more than anything about global intimacy. Regardless of borders and distance, it is being passed on between us with incredible ease and speed. We all share the same air and we all walk the same earth.
As a global family, this is a time to come together, focus on our heart connections and be there for one another. Technology allows us to weave community with one another – we can use our online meetings to practice true togetherness across space and time. Let’s use this extraordinary, globally shared experience to come home to our deeper purpose.
We have had to cancel face to face events, in the USA, Costa Rica and elsewhere, but we will not cancel our commitment to human connection. Instead, we invite you, the GEN Community, to join us for online workshops these coming two weekends, combined with freely accessible interviews and conversations. Also, each person enrolling will receive free access to the GEN Online Summit Package – with 35 hours of inspiring interviews with leading edge thinkers and practitioners – to sweeten your time at home.
Kosha Joubert & Ecovillage founders and leaders in Europe and North America, two of the areas most affected by the Coronavirus, will be leading us on this journey.
