|Cohort Assignment||Cohort A (Europe + MENA)|
|1. What do you see as your primary work at this stage of your life?|
In this moment of my life, I feel much more confident in my consciousness growth and in the faculties that I had achieved to contribute to projects that allow me to be active in the needs of new paradigms for our health as a species, and the harmony ad integration that we need with the planet and all the species with what we live. See us as part of the whole.
|2. What role do you see as yours to play?|
I am focused on generating a comprehensive life project, that is, not separating the work from the rest of the other arenas of my life.
Since I was very young, I have felt that I want to contribute with something greater than personal benefit, I have always sought major meaning and the feeling of purpose in what I do in my life. I had felt the mission of contributing to the well-being and harmony of all beings alive and for the planet.
Today we need to put ourselves into action as soon as possible, in this, I´m designing to make available my energy, my life experience, and my talents.
|3. What goals or aims do you have in regard to the above?|
Today I contribute with my talents to projects in which I see meaning, with people that want to contribute to a more regenerative world. In this goal, I´m looking to take the responsibility of preparing myself in training in skills and knowledge.
I want to build myself as a contributor.
|4. Where do you feel your next arenas for personal growth are?|
For 8 years I have put my energy into growing consciously. Today I feel more confident, although the path continues. At this moment I want to achieve growth in skills, mindset, and talents for an integral growth in mission and purpose that become tangible in my day-to-day, in my actions, and decisions.
|5. And for professional growth?|
As I have mentioned before, I want to achieve the integration with what I feel is a mission, with my need of a major purpose in what I do in my day to day.
I want to be part of projects with the mission of regenerating, and also to undertake my own project that contributes to ecosocial regeneration.
|6. What have you invested in to get you where you are?|
I have invested my energy, dedication, and way of life to be part of projects with a vision in the care of living beings, and the planet.
5 years ago I left my job and my home, and I began to look where to contribute to the paradigm shift that I see as so urgent. So I did the Permaculture design course, the Design of the social field for ecovillages course, and I took courses in regenerative projects design. Parallel to this, I volunteer with the El Manzano eco-school team (Bio Bio region, Chile). I turned my professional experience in digital products and strategy, working in digital marketing and communication strategies. Last year I started to work with glocalminds foundation, El Manzano´s ally.
After 4 years I had a salary again, just at the moment when I was without resources and thinking that I should return to my old job, and life allowed me to continue on my way.
|7. What fields of learning and which thinkers have been important in your life?|
Thinkers who have marked my life path are mainly Chilean: Claudio Naranjo, Humberto Maturana, and Lola Hoffman (not Chilean, but made her life in Chile). My great admiration and respect to Krishna Murti.
I currently follow her vision and mission in the world are: Vandana Shiva and Carol Sanford (The Seven First Principles of Regeneration)
|8. Can you frame your philosophy or cosmology of life? What role(s) do humans play in it?|
I see that I am part of a greater plan, that this plan is based on total love.
So in this big field or jungle, I play my part being the best that I am, giving my greatest potential, in the least thing that I do, with the understanding that I am not in control of what happens outside of me, and that the art is in trusting the greater plan, learning to dance in/with the system.
