We are living in times of human-caused disruption and collapse of Earth and Human systems. Humanity, particularly those of privilege, wealth and power, is still reluctant to be fully aware of this collapse, much less to be responsible for it. To become responsible, 'able to respond', will be the greatest challenge humans have ever faced.
The calling of our times is to reconnect with the sources of meaning and belonging in human life – sources and sensitivities we have all forfeited in order to participate in, and benefit from, our Business-as- Usual Human Operating System.
The immense costs of our collective disconnection from the Web of Life and the sources of meaning in life: Deeper Self, Other Beings and Earth herself, have become painfully obvious in every aspect of life on Earth.
The work of Living Resilience is to reconnect with: Deeper Self, Other People, Earth, and Soul. To reconnect with the Web of Life. This reconnection is the most powerful inner resource available to us all - as we face the greatest challenges and predicaments in human history. This ultimate inner resource is often called, Love.
Our first two of many course offerings here in Living Resilience are...
One, an introduction to our particular way of seeing and engaging with this global Collapse-Aware conversation that we call,
"Dancing at the Edge: transformative resilience facing our very human predicament."
Two, the cornerstone of our enthusiastic emphasis on embodied Practices of Reconnection including three types of practices for these troubled times...
Mindfulness / Cooling / Self-Regulating Practices
(Encouraging a calming of anxiety, anger, dissociation.)
Activating / Warming Practices
(Encouraging the activation of inner resources from a debilitating depression, unmetabolized grief, a felt-sense of despair or hopelessness.)
(Encouraging a deeply sobering relationship with the often malicious "firehose" of 24/7 media / social media / and cultural input that is rapaciously effective at keeping us off-center and disempowered at a time when that 'center' is needed most.)
We, in our small and passionate organization, are committed to providing safe environments, powerful tools, and coaching for those who are brave enough to face directly our many global problems, challenges, and predicaments.
Safe Circle Calls are a safe environment where each person can share and be heard, without being attacked or judged - an opportunity for kindred spirits to gather together to share their ups and downs related to living in a global culture that appears to have lost its bearings, lost its connection with the Web of Life.
