ReMembering Origin Stories
As America celebrates July 4 and its origins as an independent nation, we are bringing you this special program on ReMembering Origin Stories - as families, companies, and nations - in this momentous, world-changing moment.
In this interactive panel discussion and workshop, healer, speaker, entrepreneur and legacy advisor Sara Jolena Wolcott M.Div will lead a conversation on "reMembering" our origin stories, with special guests:
The stories we tell ourselves about who we are and where we come from shape our sense of our self and our values, which in turn shapes our actions. Significantly, this includes the how, where, why, duration, and in what ways we invest our time, money, relationships, and other forms of resources. This is true for individuals, families, companies, networks and nations.
Given the many challenges facing the United States at the beginning of July 2020, Independence Day provides a rich time for us to engage more deeply with our national and our familial origin stories. The descendent of one of America's founding families, Wolcott's journey into creating sustainable futures led her to looking at her own family's history differently. It was a difference that made a profound difference. During this public forum, she will share some of her story and will introduce other leaders whose own origin stories have significantly influenced how they shape their business, their philanthropy, and will tell different stories about who we are and where we come from their own unique familial and ecological perspective.
