Mennie Scapens, MEd, has a background in educational leadership, having co-founded and led Matahui School, an independent primary school in Katikati, NZ, in 1988. (www.matahui.school.nz ) Mennie has a life-long passion for education and a deep admiration and respect for teachers and their vital work in the world. Her areas of interest and expertise include the theory of multiple intelligences (Howard Gardner), teaching of creativity and effective thinking, and human diversity and potential.
Mennie also had a long involvement with the Women’s Gathering at Tauhara, which was held annually for 20 years until 2013 at Taupo, NZ.
Through her Courage & Renewal facilitation, Mennie offers people the opportunity to take time-out from their busy lives, to reconnect with themselves and review their work, their relationships and life’s other mysteries and happenings. Her goal is to help develop successful collaborative organisations where people are valued and personal connections and trust are able to thrive.
Through her work, she aims to highlight and help heal the growing sense of disconnection in our world – disconnection with our deeper self, with each other and our shared humanity, disconnection from nature and this wondrous planet we live on.
She is the author of The Rebel’s Guide to Leadership which she has written for changemakers who feel called to help create a more compassionate, just, and sustainable world.
“Let yourself be silently drawn by the strange pull of what you really love. It will not lead you astray.”
