Emma Quayle

I am originally from Cornwall, UK, where I grew up in a working-class family on the rugged windswept coasts of West Penwith. My parents brought a necessary and contagious resourcefulness to the ration-book-like bare-bones of my upbringing. It presented me with a rich environment in which to nurture my affinity for creatively utilising my surroundings. I learned to build systems and structures that enabled me to do what I wanted to do and express what was important to me, regardless of the circumstances in which I found myself.

 

I grew up quite wild and with a deep and very physical connection to the earth. I have vivid memories of the beginnings of my conscious awareness of the horrors that I saw happening within this world that I know as home and love so dearly; destruction of the earth, war, and a deeply disturbing desensitisation to violence. I became avid in my search for the essence of what was needed for us to be able to build our world together from a place of connection to joy for life. 

 

This journey of enquiry has led me through various fields of focus and development including acoustic ecology and urban design, psychoacoustics, vipassana meditation, nonviolent communication, restorative practices, working with children to develop listening and communication skills, and working with individuals and groups developing collaborative team working practices and systems design. 

 

Over the last years my attention has been wholly on mapping and making accessible context-specific pathways for exiting patriarchal functioning and realigning with vision (within NGL). One primary focus within this has been my engagement in the development of the Vision Mobilisation Framework.

 

The Vision Mobilisation work sits at the nexus of collective/structural change and inner/personal transformation; a merger of the work of Arnina, and Miki Kashtan. Vision Mobilisation supports the development of internal capacity, connection with vision, and provides a framework within which to build structures that support living towards that vision moment by moment in ways that are within capacity; this is important to be able to create something that is sustainable.
