SESSION TWO: JAN. 29, 2018
“2017-2037: ONE OF THE MOST HISTORICALLY IMPORTANT TRANSITS IN HUMAN HISTORY”
What will happen in the next 20 years and why?
The emphasis will be on all the marketplace, political, economic, medical, and social changes that are ahead. Reality, as we know it today, will change in almost every aspect of our lives. This class offers a roadmap to the future that will help you plan, work, and thrive in the years and decades ahead.
SESSION THREE: FEB. 5, 2018
“WHEN REALITY CHANGES, MEANING CHANGES. HOW CAN WE PREPARE FOR A WORLD WHERE WHAT IS REALITY TODAY NO LONGER EXISTS IN 2037?”
For this final session, participants should bring their most thoughtful questions to class. David will lead an interactive audience discussion about the massive changes to most belief systems that will happen by 2037. How can “We” anticipate these changes and how must “We” alter our thinking to be happy, relevant and successful? In order to get the most from this class, participants should have attended one or both of the previous sessions. The goal is to collectively forge new ways to think. This will be the class when “We” all realize that having participated in the three sessions connects us in a new way that might provide interactions and collaborations going forward.
