Abstract

The Congreso Futuro (Futures Congress), sponsored by the President of Chile, was established in 2011 “as a bridge that connects ideas, people and views that change the world with our society.” The 2018 Futures Congress included 40 panels featuring 130 presenters. Riane Eisler gave two plenary speeches, both featuring a Consciousness focus. In the Master’s Closing of Congress Speech delivered on January 20, 2018 at the Salón Honor – Congreso Nacional (Honor Hall of the former National Congress) in Santiago, she summarized the partnership/domination paradigm as a model for understanding our history and our current societies. She concluded by describing four societal cornerstones (family relations, gender relations, economics, and language and narrative) that support domination or partnership systems.
