About Our Programs
Leadership and Learning Programs are a cornerstone of the Center for Partnership Studies and the Caring Economy Campaign.
CPS’s Leadership and Learning Programs bring together women and men from around the world to learn how to become leaders of the partnership and caring economy movements. Participants in our online classes study partnership concepts and language and gain the evidence and the tools they need to shift their communities and organizations away from traditions of domination. Our robust alumni community creates opportunities for networking and learning long after the classes are over. Through our online Partnership Learning Community site, program graduates share resources, strategies, and action models and inspire one another to continue the vital work of cultural transformation.

Practicing Partnership with the Earth

Join Ann Amberg for a transformational learning journey. Guided by ten self-designed practices that align with nature’s primal ways of knowing, we’ll assess where we are on the domination-partnership continuum in the context of earth as family, economy, culture and home. We are embedded in an evolving sacred ecology; we can learn to work in synergy with life systems to release outmoded domination systems and nurture our birthright as planetary humans. Register for sessions individually.
