Join Riane Eisler for an Intellectual Shamans Webinar
May 5, 2023 12:00 noon EDT
Join Riane Eisler for an inspiring webinar with systems scholar, attorney, and noted intellectual shaman, hosted by Sandra Waddock and the International Humanistic Management Association. Eisler’s multidisciplinary, cross-cultural, whole-systems research introduces an urgently-needed new perspective on our past, present, and the possibilities for our future: the partnership-domination social scale. This new worldview and the need for whole-systems thinking, acting, and change, has transformed the lives and careers of people worldwide. Eisler is internationally-known for stepping outside the traditional academic and popular boundaries so we may build more sustainable, equitable, and caring institutions – from the family and education to politics and economics. Her groundbreaking book, The Chalice and the Blade is now in its 57th US printing and 27 foreign editions, her The Real Wealth of Nations introduces a new caring economics of partnerism that values and adequately reward the essential work of caring for people and nature in both the market and non-market sectors, and her latest book, Nurturing Our Humanity, published by Oxford University Press in 2019, draws from neuroscience to examine the stories and values that stand in our way, and provide four cornerstones that we must shift from domination to partnership. Eisler’s work focuses not only on deconstruction but on reconstruction – in the words of Nobel Peace Laureate Desmond Tutu, providing “a roadmap to the better world we have been so urgently seeking.” Please join us for this important session! You will be glad you did!
