The Great Transistion - Bringing Desire to Form

We are inhabiting a pivotal time in the history of humankind on the planet and our relationship with the rest of the life community on earth.

Knowing how to respond to the challenges and crises we see around us can often feel overwhelming and beyond us.  This 8 session programme aims to:

  • create a process or ‘container’ to enable you to gain deeper clarity about what it is you are most desiring to contribute to a life-giving future
  • find the inspiration, courage and freedom needed to bring into form ‘inner seeds’ which are calling you to become part of a greater movement towards change

During the 9 months of the course you will be:

  • supported in tuning into and more clearly articulating the ‘desire’ sensed within you to make a contribution to wider change in the world
  • offered a range of pathways/tools/processes to enable that desire to take more concrete form – stimulating the cognitive, creative/embodied and soul dimensions of your self
  • part of a community of others who are also seeking to bring their deeper desires into active form in the world – working within the whole group in the monthly sessions and then as part of a smaller ‘seed group’ over the 9 months of the programme

The commitment required from you is to:

  • attend the eight 2 hour monthly online group sessions (consistent
    attendance is important to follow the flow of the process, to build trust and freedom to work creatively together in the group)
  • engage with reading, reflective exercises and experiential material offered to deepen the work in between the group sessions
  • meet online once a month with your support group
