Let’s convene!

You are part of a community of awe-inspiring individuals using the Seven Levels to create remarkable change in the world. For years, we’ve been itching for an opportunity to get all of you in one room to enjoy the synchronicity that awaits! We’re thrilled to finally be facilitating this coming-together in July 2019.

This is not your average conference.

“Convening the Collective” will be a rich, organic and co-creative event, designed to bring forth thought-provoking conversations, expansive learning opportunities, and plenty of “aha” moments.

What this event is and is not

While we appreciate the power of a great conference, this is not meant to be one. In place of keynote speakers, presentation hierarchies and networking events, we are excited to bring you workshops, discussions and presentations, both organic and facilitated, on topics we believe will move us furthest forward as a collective.

We are here to highlight and celebrate the work you’ve been doing, as well as facilitate collaboration opportunities amongst you. You can count on there being plenty of time for thought-provoking conversation, meaty work, and space for synchronicity to occur.

A Note from Ursula + Ann

This community inspires and delights us. Most of you use the ideas and tools of the Seven Levels and neuroscience with your coaching clients. Some of you also use them with family, some of you in schools, some of you in organizations, government and non-profit agencies.  ALL of you care about impacting the world through your work — and your being.

It’s about time we all got together and celebrated each other. And if, in the process, we learn some cool new stuff and a few ideas emerge that might help this world move forward, then wow.

Hope to see you in New Mexico!

Love from Ann and Ursula
