We are each always changing, always growing. But sometimes we encounter moments or periods of life that are so potent, and so full of potential, that they transform our consciousness, fundamentally shifting our worldview, our motives and priorities, and how we relate to ourselves, others, and the world. Where we have been limited, we expand. We become more open, balanced, and aligned with our true values. Compassion for self and others arises more naturally.
How do people, both individuals and groups, make foundational shifts in their worldviews that give rise to radically new ways of being in the world? This Legacy group led by Cassandra Vieten will examine what science, religious and spiritual traditions, and modern transformative practice movements have to say about how people change. The group also will examine how we can get stuck or lost, and how to shake free from periods of inertia or patterns that prevent our growth.
Activities and topics for participants include:
Have you ever worked hard to make a change, only to find yourself slipping back into old habits and patterns? Are you in the midst of riding massive waves of change, and need a few surfing lessons? This workshop is for people who are in the process of change, or who work as change agents with individuals, groups, or the collective. Through dialogue, experiential practice, and creative process, the group will learn about the emerging science of transformation and explore indigenous, religious, spiritual, and secular models of transformation.
