Sunday Salons

Take time to unwind on a Sunday afternoon whilst someone shares with you what has captured their imagination. From fermenting kimchi through heartbreak, to social and cultural implications of AI. Our community is rich with gems, masters and mistresses of all sorts of skills and knowledge, and this is an opportunity to listen and learn from their passion.

Here are the details of upcoming salons:

Sunday 28th June: ‘Networks of Socio-Ecological Resiliency’ with Rory Egan Curtin

Join our open online salon as we delve into the world of systems, agriculture, and community.

What: Rory Egan Curtin is leading a discussion about the Himalayan region of Ladakh, India, which has recently seen social-ecological transformations occur at an unprecedented rate. How might we learn from this in ways that impact our understanding of food, community, and resiliency in a time when all are called into question?

When: Sunday June 28th, 2-4PM (UK)

How do these salons work?

On the last Sunday of the month, we open our doors to those in our community who have something to teach us, from knowledge to new skills. As a listener, you simply need to log on to the call and the session will be led first by the guest host, and then with a discussion afterwards. If you would like to host one of these sessions and lead a salon, email [email protected] and they will arrange this with you.

What do I get out of these salons?

Our community is vibrant with expertise in many fields under a commonality that is: a wiser way of being, and how to generate that in the world today. You get to learn from these experts and be part of a community that values rigour and expertise, knowledge sharing and craftsmanship.

Why Art / Earth / Tech value this practice 

As a community we are nothing without the people who make up the community – from different fields, cultures and ages. As you know from our Gatherings, our team and collaborations, AET is multidisciplinary and is nourished by our differences and edges.

Here are the times and dates of the salons:

28th June: ‘Networks of Socio-Ecological Resiliency’ with Rory Egan Curtin 2-4pm UK; 3-5pm CET

Write your autobiography

What is my story? How did I become the way I am? What were the events in my life that changed it? Who influenced my look on life?

What: Take the time to reflect on who you are; become the author of your life through writing and collaging your autobiography in a supportive group to share your story with

Why: What holds us back in our life are stories from our past. Distinguishing and sharing them helps us transform them.

How: Online group call for 1.5 hours every week with writing homework

When: Every Wednesday from 6:30-8pm UK for two months (9 sessions) 10th June – 5th August 2020

Price: £100 (£8 a session)

This was an amazing process of writing my story, reflecting on who I am and how I become that person.

How do these calls work?

During our weekly call, you will get to reflect on your own life path and share how your identity was formed and start to transform the seeds of the past. You will be heard by the others in the group who will also share what they are discovering about themselves. Outside of the call, you will be set writing each week that will become your autobiography. Take the time for yourself to look at your life to date so you are free to create the life you want.

You will be part of a WhatsApp group where you get to share weekly insights and pictures of your autobiographical work. In community is a way to help us break free from the narrative of separation into a sense of belonging. You can benefit from our practices regardless of your age from 20 to 80’s and beyond, our community welcomes people of all ages and backgrounds.

Doing this with others, the sharing was so moving and I got present to how I belong to one big family, that no matter the age or where we come from or our social background – we are all the same.

What do I get out of these calls?

These calls allow you to have a better understanding of your life path, create balance and a clearer direction to go forward in your life. To live in the present moment by using powerful creative tools such as collage, writing and group sharing. To be part of a community.

Here are some things that will get covered: 

  • [Coll]ages: We will work with collages on the narratives we created about ourselves and the world at different ages, so we may bring more awareness on the dynamics at play in our life
  • [I]dentity: we will explore how our sense of “I” was formed
  • [Auto]biography: we will bring more consciousness into our life journey rather than living from our subconscious mechanism 

The collages were powerful as a creative process to free myself from the past.

Why Art Earth Tech value the practice

Part of creating a wiser world we all want to live in, is by becoming more aware of how we form our identity and narratives, so we may master the perspective we have on the world, ourselves and others. We see that having deep understanding helps being empowered, and sharing that with others is where you can transform your story.

Join our ‘Write your autobiography’ calls, every Wednesday at 6:30pm-8pm UK for 3 months (12 sessions) with your hosts Sylvie Barbier & Petronella Tyson

Sylvie is a performance artist, the co-founder and head of programs at Art / Earth / Tech. Sylvie trained in Steiner Waldorf pedagogy and taught Art and Design at Polimoda in Florence, Italy. She creates powerful experiences and exercises for people to inquire about what it means to be a human being. These often include enhancing our senses, awareness, relatedness and connection. www.shiweiart.com

Petronella is a trained facilitator, community practitioner and Doula. She has twelve years experience working in communities and is passionate that they are the place for transformation and wellbeing. In order for a community to flourish, it requires us to get clear on what’s going on inside us. www.petronellatyson.com

Here are the times and dates of the calls:

  • Wednesday 17th June 6:30 – 8pm

How to create community in practice

As the confusion and uncertainty beset the world back at the start of April, many of us were thrown into redesigning and readjusting to our lives. Some of us lost people, some of us lost work, some of us were on furlough and some of us were requested to work from home. For the majority this is still the case months later. 

Art Earth Tech is a distributed team of people who work in different countries and timezones, so much of our communication and work culture is generated online. Over time we have experimented with different practices and processes to help us be effective, be connected and be well as a team, and as a community. We are community committed to being in action. And that takes practice.

Recently, we launched a new offering to share these practices and exercises with our community. These require a low but regular commitment and construct something more powerful for you in the long run. 

Get S*** Done calls is an elaboration of our morning stand-up routine. We hold one another to account for what we say we will get done that day; and what was done the day before. We give our word to the team, and that is all we can give. There is no one else telling us what to do, no ‘pressure’ we create from elsewhere, it is on our word to create our work and move the company forward. That is powerful. As it is in everyday life. 

And if you don’t do what you said you would… there is nothing wrong. If you can identify what ‘blocked you’, what got in your way and how we as a team can help (both with coaching and structurally), we go through it during the call. You can only get the support though if you share what stopped you – and that requires a level of openness and vulnerability crucial to team and to community bonding. 

Each morning now, I sit and watch as 24 people from across Europe pop up on my screen because they gave their word to show up to the group, and to themselves; to hold one another to account, the sense of integrity and commitment is tangible and their results show that. 

The next cohort starts on 8th June at 8:30am (BST) and is open to book here.

Creativity is like a muscle, the more you practice the stronger it gets. In our Creative Practice calls, you get to be more in tune with yourself and your intuition. Our community provides support and helps you with motivation, since one of the hardest things is to keep yourself motivated in your creative practice when you are alone. Morning is the best time to activate your right brain, so you will continue your day being more in the flow. Join Sylvie at 7:30am (BST) every Thursday morning from 11th June for six weeks and see for yourself what happens if you practice! https://artearthtech.com/2020/04/02/morning-creative-practice/

And finally, we delve deeper into our story.  We are excited to share with you Write your autobiography class: an opportunity to get clear on your past so you can create a new future. This is a beautiful journey with a group to reflect and discover perhaps long forgotten years of your life, key events and key people who took you in a different direction. During our weekly call you will get to share and reflect on your own life path, how your identity got formed and start to transform the seeds of the past. After just 9 weeks, you get your own unique book full of collage and stories of what made you who you are today. Starts Wednesday 10th June at 6:30pm (BST) https://artearthtech.com/2020/05/18/write-your-autobiography/

“Doing this with others, the sharing was so moving and I got present to how I belong to one big family, that no matter the age or where we come from or our social background – we are all the same.”

For all of us, we are in a time of reflection, of noticing and of opportunity to transform what isn’t working. These calls are simple ways to be part of a community that holds you to account to that opportunity and helps you break through what is not working for you. Come and join the call with us.

Get S*** Done Calls

“The practice of writing down goals and To Dos helps to create more headspace and focus. I’m usually not a person who likes to be held accountable for tasks and when there are deadlines, I do everything at the last minute, but this feels completely different and for some magical reason I get so motivated to tick off boxes. Especially in these times I feel extremely grateful for this cohort and the support it’s giving me.

Maybe there are projects you always wanted to do but never got around to it. Maybe you tend to procrastinate and overthink things. Maybe sometimes you just need to talk to someone so you can get your juices flowing! Well the Get S*** Done call is for you! You can benefit from our practices if you are doing a massive spring clean or delivering a project to a client. This call is open for all from teachers to musicians, to engineers and business owners all over Europe. 

Join our Get S*** Done calls, every weekday morning for 25 minutes from Monday 8th June at 8:30am (UK) for 3 weeks with your host Petronella @Art Earth Tech.

Book in for £30 for 15 sessions and get £5 BACK if you attend 90% of the calls!

“If you want some structure and to make yourself accountable to other people, this is a great way to do it. Also a good opportunity to get clear on what it is you really want to achieve and why and how your daily to-do list are aligned with that. In lockdown particularly, it is really great to see other faces everyday and make contact with others but even outside of lockdown, for those who work alone, from home or are self employed, I would say it’s an excellent course.”

How do these calls work? 

You will be part of a WhatsApp group, where you get to write up what you have accomplished in the last 24 hours, what your game is to achieve and do in the next 24 hours, and what you may be blocked with.  This is where being part of a community who has your back helps. 

Life has always been uncertain, yet having practices and people around help us accomplish what we want. 

What do I get out of these calls?

Our community provides support and accountability which produces powerful results (and better than going at it alone). This is a practice we have tested ourselves internally for several years and it works. Which is why we want to offer it to our broader community. Here are some additional things that will get covered:

  • Self motivation and self management
  • Accountability
  • Validation exercise
  • Integrity

“I always take so much out of it! For me especially it is reassuring to see that we all struggle with similar things and that that, too, is part of the process. But I also get a lot of inspiration from seeing what people are striving to accomplish and from getting a more private glimpse into the life of a stranger, and what other forms of living there are (profession, housing, volunteering, cooking, farming,…)

Get S*** Done Culture of Art / Earth / Tech

Part of creating a wiser world we all want to live in, is in the way we are being and getting s*** done. Art Earth Tech would not exist if it were not for us waking up with a possibility and getting the legwork done. We’re doers as well as thinkers and meditators. We value hard work, commitment, shipping, and getting sh** done. So we can’t wait to be on the call with y’all and share this practice with you. Who’s in?! 

Join our morning calls at 8:30am – 8:55am (UK) on Get S*** Done. 

Every weekday for 30min from Monday 8th June to Friday 29th May with your host Petronella @Art Earth Tech. Book yourself for £30 and get £5 BACK if you attend 90% of the calls!

“The morning meetings helped me focus, not just on my day ahead, but on what is important to me. I’ve come away from three weeks with (finally!) a sense that I can make space for the bigger plans in my life. And there are already signs of that plan coming together.”

Here are the times and dates of the calls (BST):

You can benefit from our practices if you are doing a massive spring clean or delivering a project to a client. This call is open for all from teachers to musicians, to engineers and business owners. 

  • Monday 8th June 8:30-9:30am our first call will be for 1h, so we can set you up!

Morning Creative Practice

We are offering our Morning Creative Practice calls every Thursday 7:30- 8:30am (UK). First one starts on the 11th of June until the 16th July. Book yourself for £35. 

Why does art and creativity matter? Well it is your expression, the one which is unique to you. It is a way of making sense of the world and your life, to integrate different parts of yourself and express them. Our Morning Creative Practice calls are here so we make time to develop our artistic side and explore the depth of our humanity.

“These weekly sessions helped to awaken my imagination in work and everyday life, and to deepen my connection with creative parts of myself that have been dormant.”

I would highly recommend these calls for those who are looking for ways to express themselves, creative motivation and connection with others. I felt truly inspired and challenged by each session. My mind, body and soul were nourished by the creative practices.”
