Jan. 22 – “Transforming in the midst of crises,” Rita George
Revolutionary new historical, archeological, and scientific discoveries shine a bright light on how Seven Principles – the Phoenician Blueprint – was used by the ancient Phoenician culture to create peace and prosperity for 3,000 years, even though they were surrounded by larger, warlike neighbors. As a descendant of the Phoenicians and a transformational strategist and author who has turned around individual lives and businesses in transition for over 30 years, Rita George brings insight on how evolutionary transformation is unfolding in the midst of a crisis-cycle of history, how the country is divided by two different worldviews, how this ancient wisdom illustrates a bigger picture of history linked to the last political election, and how the wisdom can resolve modern day crises.
