Group Relations Conference: Exploring Ancestral Meaning Systems as they relate to Leadership and Authority.
Director: Professor Michelle May
Posted: November 1, 2022
IGSPO in partnership with the THIR invites us to a GRC to explore how our ancestral meaning systems relate to leadership and authority.
The rapid destruction of our natural ecological systems and dehumanization of our world calls us. The call to return to the place of belonging, to the homestead of our humanness on planet earth. The umLalhankosi (Buffalo Thorn Tree), used to hold and return the spirits to the place called home, serves as a metaphor for the tree of life to which we belong.
African sage Credo Mutwa said: “You must never again say that you do not know something. You must ask the lake, the unseen lake, to provide you with the knowledge that you seek”. His wisdom rings true with Bion's ideas of our oceanic state of origin. Please join us to explore how our ancestral meaning systems relate to leadership and authority.
