In this Omega Conversation, celebrated musician and philanthropist Peter Buffett and Omega cofounder Elizabeth Lesser discuss and explore the “phoenix process,” named for the mythical phoenix bird who remains awake through the fires of change, rises from the ashes, and is reborn into a more vibrant and enlightened self, as it relates to these times.
The phoenix bird appears in ancient mythology across cultures and eras. Continually changing, yet eternally itself, the phoenix represents the idea that the end is only the beginning, and that in order to change, we must let go of what no longer works in our personal and collective lives.
With so much changing all around us, it’s an unsettling time, but also one full of hope and possibility. If we listen closely for what wants to be born, we can become innovators, healers, and creators.
Don’t miss this powerful conversation, where Peter shares what he’s learned as the steward for many years of a philanthropic organization focused on social and economic justice, gender equity, and promoting local living economies. Plus, he and Elizabeth answer many questions from the Omega community about how we can reimagine our future.
