ebbf 2021 retreat
16th to 19th Sept 2021
Every year we hold a very special and intimate ebbf retreat in Acuto, a medieval village perched on the top of a hill in the countryside around Rome.
At a time of deep fast change, ebbf has created for you a moment to come together to pause and reflect, to understand, to gather new insights and plan actions around some of the questions we share below.
How can we best prepare for the new work ethic that is emerging? How can we influence it?
The global pandemic has allowed assumptions to be questioned, new possible future ways and meanings of work have emerged.
Across our societies, we are also seeing the manifestation of the challenges presented by global climate and ecological crises, which will require unprecedented innovation and responses by all.
We come together to understand and explore how we can harness these new mindsets that are arising and offer new relevant ones.
Across our societies, we are also seeing the manifestation of the challenges presented by global climate and ecological crises, which will require unprecedented innovation and *dynamic* responses by all.
“Study which involves not only constant reference to the writings of the Faith but also scientific analysis of patterns unfolding”
We want to be “building a materially and spiritually prosperous future.”
UHJ letter dated 2nd of March 2013 to the Baha’is of Iran.
What assumptions have been questioned?
What good has happened?
What is giving us hope?
Once we reopen our working spaces, what should they look like?
We want to avoid old ways by fostering universal participation, personal learning, universal learning.
It is fundamental that we rethink human relations at work.
“Extraordinary reservoir of spiritual potential available”
“Transformation of both the inner life and external conditions of humanity”
“This transformation naturally occurs as a growing body of people, united by the divine precepts, collectively seeks to develop spiritual capacities to contribute to the process of social change.”
Ridvan message 2010
There is extraordinary spiritual potential that we all have access to.
What does that mean, how can we access it?
How can people in my community that I influence and interact with (team / clients / suppliers / customers / society...) gain access to it?
We want to understand the adjustments that are required in the present order but mainly we want to reflect on the new order that is required and how we can contribute to it.
Stepping away from an already broken system and instead putting time and energy to help the creation of the new system.
How can we build, create, share Human Knowledge
How can we move from the current prevailing material, ego-driven priorities to a spiritual attitude and behaviour?
How can consultation, universal participation and empowerment help us achieve this?
