Laddership Pods – The Alchemy Of Uncertainty
Posted by Bonnie Rose on Jul 31, 2020
The first Laddership Pod was conceived and implemented during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. A 28-day process, it included 260 participants from 25 countries, dedicated to transformation. The time was ripe. So we gathered via technology to envision a new future.
I’m sure many of us thought we’d find answers – solutions for personal and world problems. Instead, we wrestled daily with unanswerable questions. We stayed “in the grey” and pondered the nuances of transformation. “When do I surrender, vs. when do I apply tenacious grit?” “How do we navigate giving and burn-out?” “Where is the balance between inclusion and boundaries?”
The result was magical. Our willingness to embark upon this journey of unknowing delivered us to a realm of shared emergence. Emergence looked like deepening friendships, radical acts of kindness, personal revelations, learning from each other, a brilliant on-the-fly tech platform that supported our global embrace, support for personal aspirations.
The Laddership Pod was a priceless experiment in something beyond what our smaller selves can know. It called forth an un-nameable essence. Unspeakable grace? Infinite possibilities? A sense of an ever-present goodwill that transcends and transforms all things? Yes, all of that, and so much more.
