Jennifer Louden‘s an opening speaker – and a speaker about ‘opening’ – for the Festival of Change. I asked her to participate after I discovered her ‘listening to the question’ audio. As you might imagine, the title caught my attention – I spend a whole lot of time listening to questions, other people’s as well as my own. So I travelled through Jen’s audio retreat with her, listened, opened… enjoyed it but felt grumpily that nothing much had happened… and then over the next couple of days experienced some of the most revealing synchronicities I’ve ever encountered. Hmm.
So this experience, plus enjoying what she writes, plus the fact that her wonderful Virtual Retreats were what first gave me the idea of running an event that would be a whole, coherent experience rather than just a string of information… all meant that asking her seemed like a Very Good Idea.
Then naturally I talked with Yi (as I did with all the speakers), asking what it would mean to partner with her on this. Yi said 14.2.4 changing to 22: Great Possession’s Beauty. I think this refers amongst other things to the fact that she’s the most well-known among the speakers. It also shows the richness of what she offers, how she can provide a big enough ‘vehicle’ to carry us through, and how it would be best if I didn’t try to impose my ideas on her too much!
Timezones permitting, Jen’s call will be the first of the event, on 4th September. We’ll be talking – as you might have guessed – about questions: why they’re important, what knots we tie ourselves in with them and how we might untie a few. And Jen will take us through a guided meditation for listening to questions. (Something similar to the one that led to such amazing experiences for me.)
We’ll take questions during the call, as many as we have time for – but what would you say I should definitely ask her?
