This series of Deep Discovery Conversations is a journey of
within and between us
and learn how to
EMPOWER YOUR CREATIVE GENIUS AS
“Awakening is a process. It usually doesn’t happen all at once, and we're all involved in the process of awakening all the time, each at a different point in this process. This particular time where so much is collectively changing for us, makes it a great opportunity for us to awaken more quickly to the greater reality. When I say that, I mean this is about an extension of our identity from the little me into bigger identification with our communities, the world-at-large, and even the cosmos.”
Rose and Woods are founding members of A Whole New World. They explore what it means to be discovery oriented and offer guidelines and skills for holding a Deep Discovery session.

3. Barry Brailsford: LAUNCHING THE WAKA FOR THE SACRED JOURNEY
“It’s time now, the time of the Returning, time to reflect and look back, to awaken the whole new world, honour the connection with the Ancestors and come together to create a world of peace.”
Barry’s work is a journey through the wisdom traditions of indigenous pacific peoples.

4. Makuini Ruth Tai : AROHA LIGHT LANGUAGE
'Aroha' is the Maori word for love. If we look at its root words we will find a story that describes the process of love. 'Aro' is 'to
I am dedicated to helping people return to the path of Aroha. I am passionate about my native Maori language because it has helped me to know who I truly am and the nature of my true purpose in life. I am equally passionate about nature inspired living and am fortunate to have recently moved back to the country to bring to light a long held dream of rebuilding papa-kainga or eco sustainable earth home (village). My websites are undergoing reconstruction as I prepare to launch Aroha Light Language and Pa Manawa (Heart Havens). My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
5: John Broomfield: OTHER WAYS OF KNOWING
“What are the things we need to be involved in to avert the mindless headlong rush we seem to be involved in as a civilization: one is silence, or stillness in the biggest sense. And connected with centering into silence is how we understand ourselves to be simply one of millions of spirit forms from the natural world”.
John is a teacher, writer, educational consultant and leader of cross-cultural study tours and shamanic workshops. Former Professor of History at the University of Michigan and President of the California Institute of Integral Studies, he is the author of Other Ways of Knowing: Recharting Our Future with Ageless Wisdom published by Inner Traditions. A student of sacred ecology and interspecies communication, he lives on remote land in the Marlborough Sounds, New Zealand, to learn directly from animals, plants and earth. His website is http://www.eagletours.co.nz and he is available at email@example.comJohn Broomfield
6. Anahata Ishaya: THE PROCESS OF AWAKENING
“Grace comes to us in every moment, it’s just that we don’t know it most of the time we forget because our connection with the Divine isn’t fully hooked in yet. Develop the desire for this connection with the Divine today and just by that desire, that willingness and intent, it will happen”.
Most of Anahata's knowledge comes from her privileged and intensive life skills. Growing up in a family of 6, living and traveling abroad, eleven years of corporate sales & service experience, five years as a spiritual bookstore owner, single parent of two children and fifteen years as a spiritual Ishaya monk teaching meditation all assisted in deepening her desire to know her world, her life and the connection to All That Is. http://onenessuniversity.org More here:
7 Margaret Jefferies: COMMUNITY AFTER THE EARTHQUAKES
“We’re creating a culture of possibility. I’m amazed how many things unfold according to our vision and intent and how magnificently things unfold when we hold them lightly, being open and flexible and allowing.”
Margaret works in her community seeding ideas for sustainable development and bringing these ideas to fruition. All of her life experience in education, raising a family of 5, teaching, facilitation, as the Spirit @ Work conferences instigator…is brought to bear on her work now as Chair of Project Lyttelton. Her work there is in a leadership and visionary role as she holds the values of reciprocity, caring and support, openness, shifting outmoded systems that no longer work all in the spirit of love. www.lyttelton.net.nzMargaret Jefferies
8 Richard Oswald: TAKING THE NEXT STEP INTO THE CREATIVE SELF

Richard is a social change agent and Founding member of the Eden Foundation, a pioneering not-for-profit social enterprise whose purpose is to catalyse human potential, promote social and sustainable innovation, and create real transformative change. More here:
9 Rose Diamond and Woods Elliott, A DEEP DISCOVERY CONVERSATION FOR INTEGRATION
“ Discovery oriented conversations are designed to have more dimension that ordinary conversations. The state of presence is the main condition, settling the self into comfort, ease and absence of tension, and deliberately attempting to create an opportunity for things to disclose themselves; taking the moment as immediately as we can, and by doing so getting beyond the ego an entering into exchanges of the transpersonal.”
