Accessing Ancient Wisdom for Living in Full-Hearted Prosperity

Monday, July 31st | 9:00am - 4:00pm

Facilitators: Anthony Willoughby, Don Opatrny, Doutzen Groothof, Polina Crotty

Embark on an experiential journey into the many dimensions of visible and invisible wealth and what it means to truly prosper. This Pre-Rendezvous Workshop brings together the ancient wisdom of our ancestors, the insights of modern indigenous communities, and our own values and life experiences, to broaden our thinking and come to greater clarity about our purpose. Led by Don Opatrny, Principal of the Lovins Group, British explorer Anthony Willoughby, and elder of the Maasai people Emmanuel Mankura (joining us live from his home in Kenya) we will experiment with the fast-working, emotionally engaging, and non-threatening methodology they have developed, which is enabling practitioners and clients in the family wealth arena to break out of habitual patterns and articulate inspiring new visions. We will ask essential questions and chart courses to game-changing answers for us, our clients, and the larger community.  This full-day session will take place on Monday, July 31st from 9:00am – 4:00pm at the Westin.
