Technics and wisdom are not by any means opposed. On the contrary, the duty of our age … is to unite them in a supreme humility which will result in a totally self-forgetful creativity and service.*
I is a dream-blowing giant.**
I want to share a little more about an idea mentioned earlier this month.
It has been reported that it is the young who are being most affected by unemployment as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, so I’m trying to figure out a way of making a form of my dreamwhispering work available to anyone who would like to explore the depths of their talents and skills towards being better prepared for work in the future.
It’s not HR and it’s not a careers service but it will make it possible to be more aware of what we have and what we can do.
The project will comprise of online sessions and offline reflection and exercises leading to participants noticing, reflecting upon and beginning to express nineteen significant truths about themselves. These include values, talents and the kind of environments we flourish in and perish in.
There’ll be no direct cost involved, but there will be an expectation for each person to be committed to the journey.
I’d really appreciate it if you would help me get the word out. Whilst the headline about young people being made unemployed caught my eye, the project is open to any who have been laid off because of Covid-19.
If you are interested then drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
It is also possible to support the project. If you are interested to find out what this means then please let me know.
