STIA+Temenos 2016

Celebrating 25th Anniversary of the System Thinking in Action Conference and its reincarnation as STIA+Temenos

Sunday, May 22, 2016 | Boston University, Boston, MA

Welcome to the new world of STIA+Temenos where Systems Thinkers play with several other transformational methods and approaches. STIA 2016 will feature a creative mixture of sessions from knowledge areas that surround, enhance and complement Systems Thinking.

Every single system demands a Leadership cognizance! We can’t solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created the system. And we also mustn’t act without taking a good look at what we are doing and why. You can say, a constant retroactivation and shared learning is needed to achieve a system’s shared vision. Join us, with our journey of 21st Century Systems Thinking Discovery. Be a System Thinker, feel the positive wholeness of a system personally & professionally.

    Personal Mythology (PM):
    Each and every life in this universe is an embodiment of tales. Being masked and well secluded in a person’s heart the tales teach the ways to preserve the uniqueness of a journey and help to transform.

    Clean Slate (CS):
    In Temenos, you all are the Storytellers of many adventures. The days of happiness and sadness; the moments of fulfillments and disappointments; the feelings of contentments and displeasures -- all are being the mileposts for you to reach your true purpose of life. Clean slate is a process, that differentiate the delusions from realities.. We facilitators can teach you “Why being honest is necessary. Whatever we do the responsibility lies with us, so without running away from it, we can always choose to face.” So Clean slate is a eliminating process of the emotional baggages that drag a person down.
    True Personal Vision (PV):
    When we start observing and making conclusions about ourselves and our environment, the conclusions we make affect our identity, vision and roadmap. Temenos symbolizes the Greek word for container or vessel. It is about awakening yourself to self-healing and self-realization, that will help you to light the fire of transformation in your soul. We absolutely believe in The Power of Vision.. Humans achieve the authentic insights of Vision from a lifetime exploration of connecting themselves to others and acknowledging their existence as a part of container.

Join us for the 25th anniversary celebrations of The Systems Thinking in Action conferences and its reincarnation as STIA+Temenos. We will have multiple Temenos Vision Labs (small systems) facilitated simultaneously and also a few plenary labs for all participants (large system).

Based on the work of Siraj Sirajuddin, we propose Temenos Vision Labs. Where we help individuals (leaders) to fathom their own dreams, motivations and magnify their awareness of the container they belong to. The skills we provide influences gratification towards life and gives an indepth understanding on self-sabotaging and self-deceiving behaviour of humans. The deep trust and shared insights that evolve in Temenos labs help individuals to work more genuinely by supporting each other in a container.
