In this episode, Angela Levesque explores the Warrior, the Anchor & the Visionary. Different roles emerging from different perspectives in our current paradigm. All of them valuable and all of them necessary. We also explore the difference between conscious and unconscious chaos and why this idea of destruction and dismantling our system using our current approaches will only lead to more of the same power dynamics. If we want to create a new world, we fundamentally need to operate from a different story of power with instead of power over.
- In this segment, we take a deep dive into the current power dynamics that underpin our dominant narratives. Using the framing of stories, structures, and systems we uncover that all attempts to dismantle the system without challenging the story and the zero-sum power dynamics that exist within it, are just doomed to repeat the cycle. The idea of conscious and unconscious chaos is also explored noting that destruction is only one aspect of chaos, we also need to embrace the void aspect and its importance in giving rise to new stories, structures, and systems. The path to any change occurs not from being in resistance to a dominant system but by making the current one irrelevant.
- In this segment, we look at the different roles that one might play in bringing in a new paradigm. We look at the warrior, the anchor, and the visionary. None is more important than the other, each person needs to assume the role to which they are called.
