The climate crisis is not only the single greatest challenge facing our country; it is also our single greatest opportunity to build a more just and equitable future, but we must act immediately. Bernie Sanders
Dear Ones, The three greatest issues facing humanity today, are climate change, social and economic inequality and spiritual abandonment, the issues we’ve been talking about on Conversations for almost two decades. These issues can seem overwhelming, too complex to face and often beyond resolution. The resulting sense of overwhelming despair, doubt, and resignation lead many to depression, desperation, and even suicide. Perhaps the greatest threats to life on earth are presenting our greatest opportunity…
The immense global suffering that we are experiencing today was born of a lie! This untruth is the unexamined belief that we are separate, separate from our bodies, each other, and from nature. It was born some 300 years ago when we bought into a worldview that convinced us that we live in a mechanistic world of objects, and the wild beauty of the natural world surrounding us, was little more than resources here for our own personal aggrandizement.
True self is non-self, the awareness that the self is made only of non-self elements. There’s no separation between self and other, and everything is interconnected. Once you are aware of that you are no longer caught in the idea that you are a separate entity. Thich Nhat Hanh
But, there is a new emerging worldview that has the power to transform, our lives, our culture, and our world. This new Quantum perspective validates what the ancient mystics, shamans, and medicine people have been saying for thousands of years. It has the power and capacity to turn the direction we are headed to one of peace, possibility, and prosperity. It represents the journey from the head to the heart!
This journey starts with the deconstruction of our own personal narrative, separating our feelings from our story, and using every circumstance that arises to claim the beauty of our own awakening. As Saint Francis said, “it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.” What is dying is our dysfunctional, deterministic past based story. When we move into the world of Quantum Mysticism we enter into a world beyond our personal story, and outside of time, where past, present and future meld into the eternal now. This is the story that is calling us from the emergent future…
The ability to shift from reacting against the past to leaning into and presencing an emerging future is probably the single most important leadership capacity today. C. Otto Scharmer
From this place of deep presencing, we step into the role of the cultural mystic, on a pilgrimage, stalking the truth of what is, which gives us the clarity, capacity, and opportunity to experience our true purpose for being here - it is the rebirth of our own belonging! This is our birthright, we were born, in a body, at this time to reconnect the severed cords of connection with all of life and release ourselves from the prison of our own mental constructs.
We are offering you a new map of the journey from your head to your heart and will present a template to guide you on your journey to wholeness and the alignment of the heart, head, and body.
In this webinar, you will learn 3 primary practices of the cultural mystic that will support you in using difficulties, triggers or upsets as access to personal and planetary healing… We hope you will enjoy this talk and join us for the upcoming Way of the Mystic: An Embodied Approach to Personal and Planetary Healing.
With heartfelt love and gratitude, Michael, Meriel and the Well of Light Team
