Phenomenological Observation Facilitator 

Lawrence Ngorora

Lawrence originates from Zimbabwe. Professionally, Lawrence studied Synoptic Meteorology in Russia, almost 20 years ago. Family and systems constellations offered him a link to the question of tracing his origin. Using the power of Awareness to realize individual personal leadership, Lawrence enquires about the illusion of self-identity, race and gender. In mixed groups of both men and women Lawrence helps participants to speak openly about the difficult topic of gender injustice. Using the model of deep democracy and self-inquiry, Lawrence is trying out new ways of welcoming and bringing to light that pain which hides us from active citizenry. He does this through dialoguing and ‘conversations that matter’, sometimes in wilderness settings.
