Event description

Description

The topic was inspired by the sense that we are living at a time of massive changes – politically, environmentally, socially, financially, spiritually, in the values we live by ... Many of us feel threatened by what feels like our world breaking down around us.

It's as though huge, tectonic plates are shifting in our inner worlds as well as externally. Like some archetypal battle is being fought out over our heads. We can feel quite powerless.

Are the collective myths that have anchored us individually and culturally and have given direction and meaning to our lives, losing their power? Are new myths emerging, and if so, where do each of us individually fit in? Can we engage with this archetypal level of meaning?

Last time we looked at Peter Fenwick’s research on Near Death Experiences. Many of the accounts of people who had had them included a sense of having to come back for a reason … But if there is something we are here to do, how does that purpose emerge? Do we find it or create it, and how do we know what it is and if we are living in line with it?

We also looked at the transformation of consciousness and Non-Ordinary States of Consciousness (NOSCs) - what Steve Taylor called ‘awakening experiences’ - moments in which we open to a field of awareness outside our conditioned ways of seeing and experiencing. Are we as individuals really separate or is part of our being formed in relationship to others and to our community? Might there even be a level at which our consciousness is part of a wider field of Consciousness, as many spiritual teachers suggest?

Might NOSCs, these moments of expanded awareness, help us engage with what is emerging as our guiding myths recede? And is there a need to revalue the archetypal Feminine to restore a healing balance to our individual and collective psyches?

These questions are important, as they influence how we move forward as individuals and as a species. The answers we find for ourselves will determine the extent to which we feel we can make a difference in what happens next. If there is a storm – how can we survive it in a way that is creative and life-enhancing for ourselves, our families, our communities and the planet? How do we find our own path through?

The purpose of this day is to create a safe space for us to explore some of our own thoughts, feelings and experiences. We can all learn from each other. The speakers and short film are just there to get us going!
