The Weaver's Way

What An Ancient Art Can Teach You About Your Approach To Shaping Change

By Corrina Grace


Fires, floods, the rising cost of living, and increasing inequality. As Corrina Grace argues in The Weaver’s Way, the sense of safety and security that those of us in the West carry with us is nothing more than a dangerous illusion. And the only way forward toward a more certain future is to throw off that illusion and find new ways to engage in shaping change in the world around us.

But not just any approach will work. Whether it’s in the aftermath of a natural disaster or in the daily lives of those living in marginalized communities around the world, it’s become clear that the business-as-usual approach to change—change that makes a real difference—isn’t sustainable.

 

Based on Corrina’s first-hand experience, social impact strategy is most successful when ordinary people are empowered to come together and weave their communities back together.

Corrina Grace built a career facilitating transformative change in marginalized communities in Central America—a place that she always believed was worlds away from her native New South Wales, Australia. But it was while taking part in rescue efforts during the catastrophic flooding that destroyed thousands of homes and businesses in her hometown in early 2022 that she came to a realization: that the blueprint to resilience lies in those margins.

In The Weaver’s Way: What An Ancient Art Can Teach You About Shaping Change Corrina Grace proposes a new approach for the social entrepreneur.
