SYNERGOS VIRTUAL CONVENINGS

At Synergos, we remain committed to creating a world that is more equitable, just and regenerative. Now that we see that so much of what we thought immutable is actually quite fragile, what might we want to let go off? And what might we want to create?
We invite members of the Synergos community to investigate with us how do we build new forms of connection and solidarity. Join us in multiple spaces of discussion: CULTIVATE THE MIND explores the most pressing conversations of our time, CULTIVATE THE SOUL practices inner work and increasing consciousness with Synergos' Spiritual Civilization community and COLLECTIVE ACTION introduces specific initiatives aimed toward building action towards lasting change.

New Views on Trust in Philanthropy
Virtual Session, May 13, 2020
Trust is the bedrock of all authentic relationships and collaborative partnerships. However, as the philanthropic landscape undergoes a seismic shift, many are questioning the structural power imbalances, lack of transparency, and trustworthiness of large charities, grantmakers, and philanthrocapitalists. Join us for a conversation on how to build and enhance trust in philanthropy through mutual sharing, engagement with giving, and re-imagining relationship-building to ensure history’s greatest transfer of wealth goes as far as it can in making a more just, peaceful, and equitable world.

Emerging from Crisis through Inclusion
Virtual Session, May 20, 2020
The coronavirus has spread across the globe, and as the pandemic continues to unfold, there will be unpredictable challenges to which none of us have all the answers. Now more than ever, the importance of having a diverse community centered on inclusion matters. Those of us who are fortunate enough to be healthy are making sacrifices for our global community. For many, those sacrifices are life altering.
How does crisis exacerbate inequity? How can people mitigate inequities whenever possible? What can we learn from past experiences? Our hosts will explore these questions and more.

Moving Beyond Empathy to Compassion
Virtual Session, May 27, 2020
We often “take on” or “own” the pain of others, which can be overwhelming and lead to burn out. Especially in today’s time of the Covid-19 pandemic, when we see so much suffering around us, there are ways we can have a broader perspective of the situation; to have clarity of mind to make better decisions. Explore with us the journey towards compassion.

Virtual Session, June 10, 2020
How can we, as philanthropists, create the conditions for better connecting people, for assisting them in mutually supporting each other in reaching common goals and in improving life together?

Over the course of the retreat, we will come together to share our experiences and explore ways to support one another and co-ordinate efforts.
