In this conversation, Louie opened the space for recognising a crucial distinction between selfishness, self-centredness, and self-centring. Drawing on the principle of Natural Inclusion, she illuminated how self-centring was an inclusional, expansive antidote to the separating; excluding actions that we may describe as selfish or self-centred. Why might it matter to recognise the distinctions? How can we notice the differences within us, and more importantly, equip ourselves and others to break free from the illusions that keep us locked in repeating patterns that perpetuate separation, distress, and loneliness?

Self-Centring: An Inclusional, Expansive Antidote to Selfish and Self-Centred Reactivity – Louie Gardiner

Presenter

Dr. Louie Gardiner

PhD, MBA, BA (hons), FRSA, Author, Poet; Accredited Supervisor and Master Coach, Change-maker, facilitator, learning partner.

Louie is passionately involved in liberating human potential, drawing upon the natural processing dynamics of ‘Presence in Action’ and ‘Symmathesic Agency’ which pulse at the heart of all she does with individuals, groups and organisations.

These accessible approaches for catalysing personal and systemic change tap into diverse modes of exploration and expression that leverage all that makes us human. Deploying a fusion of poetic, visual, kinaesthetic, intellectual and performative modalities, Louie tickles out authentic human exchange, invoking those who engage to surface their personal and collective brilliance.

Louie’s work is grounded in her doctorate which epitomises the integration of deep personal and collective inquiry; emergent symmathesic professional practice; coherent philosophical and theoretical foundations, and a pioneering approach to academic research.

Her past roles include CEO, Board Trustee, Head of Corporate Performance & Development; visiting lecturer to undergraduate and post-graduate degrees.

She has contributed articles to both academic and practice-based journals e.g. Human Arenas, Cybernetics and Human Knowing, e-O&P Journal, Coaching Today, the3rdi magazine, and Book Chapters in Coaching Supervision Groups: Resourcing Practitioners (2021); Coaching Supervision: Advancing Practice, Changing Landscapes (2019); and The Collaboratory (2015); poetry anthology Attending, Responding, Becoming: An anthology of surprises beyond intention or design (2021) see Louie’s website.
