My latest take on life, the universe and everything – Volution

This is the pre-paper that I wrote for Wisdom University’s Fundamentals of Cosmometry virtual intensive. It carries a creative commons copyright. 

Volution

Introduction

This paper describes my current understanding of life, the fundamental patterns at work, and the implications of that for our work in the world – in a very compact nutshell! It draws on my collaboration with Dylan Newcomb, input from Marshall Lefferts at the Wisdom University Chartres intensive 2011, the work of Nassim Haramein, ECOtherapy concepts and practice of Hans Andeweg, and my own original ideas.

Presence in Essence – letting go, letting come and the space in between

This is something I have been wanting to do for a while, and now it is going to happen! We are going to run a two-and-a-half day intensive to really dive into the essence of emergence, Theory U and presencing. Too often Theory U has been taken as a tool to apply to a system, whereas it is really a description of the natural cycle of emergence. At the core of the emergence process is the dropping away of the old, the stillness in the space which that leaves, and the birth of something new out of that womb. We will experience and reflect on the core of that process during this event, with real experiences from our work in the world. No knowledge of the model needed!

What is also very cool is that we have someone with real experience of hospicing (Ivo Callens) and of midwiving (Teresa Collins) on the team, to join myself and Gert van Santen holding the flow as a whole.

It is June 18-20 – nicely aligned with the summer solstice – and will be held at the beautiful and nourishing location of Samaya in Werkhoven, the Netherlands. It would be great to have you with us. Click here for more info.
