Tounché Asia 2019

Kura Kura Happiness Island, Bali

Theme: STEPPING-UP SACRED LEADERSHIP

Inspired action to co-create a more loving compassionate world

A new kind of leadership is called upon us to lead the necessary revolution to create a more loving and compassionate world where all can thrive: humans, animals, nature, cosmos. We are all called to be Sacred Leaders. Leaders who transcend the illusion of separation, have a humble and reverent approach to the world, who lead from a profound and serene place of alignment with All.

Tounché AFRICA 2018

Cradle of Humankind, South Africa

theme: UNITING IN A POLARIZED WORLD

Heal the divide & craft a vision of a depolarized world

There is an angst in the air that permeates our daily lives. All these things that divide us, politics, religious war, xenophobia, racism, and gender divide, are causing us to move with an unease. We already carry the weight of a traumatic past and for many of us, the day-to-day microaggressions often build, reopening old wounds. What can we do to help? Are there different solutions we haven’t tried? How can we be changemakers in our businesses, communities and our daily lives? Where do we find solace, love, and understanding? Where do we go to commune, to breathe?

AUTHENTIC

Tounché is intentionally designed to create a fundamental shift in all who participate to unite in an increasingly polarized world. It is intended to serve as a safe space to engage in polarizing topics from diverse perspectives, to encourage healing and renewal and to empower ourselves through wisdom sharing & preservation.
