Consciousness, Climate Change
. . . the Shift
This intense time of change brings up grief, worry and fear about how or even if we'll make it through.
I've noticed that there's an amazing "network effect" when we come together in safe, respectful conversation with others around what's most important to us. For many of us that looks like climate change in particular and in the whole uncertainty around the collective future.
It helps enormously to explore this with others, busting the "isolating personal performance" that seem to be asked of us, finding together something that's more than the sum of its parts.
Just finished the fall group explorations and am preparing for a new set of explorations after Christmas!
Inner Climate Collective (Ongoing, next entry January)
Each get-together aims to be an instance of the future we want.
Andrew MacDonald here! What I notice is that we're so isolated with all this change around us - often caught in an isolating personal performance to make the old world work. I love groups that help us bust isolation and get more real with ourselves and each other.
My group connections have changed my life in fundamental ways and shown me quite literally, a world of possibility!

"When you break up the individuals from a community into individual units, they become disempowered because it's the collective consciousness and the collective energy of the group from which power comes.”
The Hello Climate Change! is just what I’ve been wanting without even knowing I wanted it. I volunteer regarding climate change and reversing it through drawdown. I’m in groups that include looking at the issue with body, mind and spirit. Yet the questions we work with here and the approach of awareness of the group field/intelligence are completely fresh for me and I find myself growing as a sacred activist even more.

Though, I’m a lover of Truth and have a daily spiritual practice, the interaction with Andrew has exponentially provided a sense of presence that lingers even after our short dialogue. It’s helped me to be grounded in Presence with my personal relationships as well as a consultant and facilitator.

I’ve been carrying a lot of the weight of that [climate change] conversation on my own and sharing it with [my partner] and others who are open to it but it’s my perception that the opportunities to connect in that way are rare, but the online group in that space that you created in the we-space, there’s really a lot of immediacy and presence. I can fully be present for myself and others in that space in a way that seems harder in everyday conversation . . .
