Our Invitation to practice Collective Alchemy continues 14 August 2020

Friday August 14, 2020

AS THE WAVES OF CHANGE INCREASE AND INTENSIFY, WHAT IS OURS TO DO AS FELLOW ALCHEMISTS IN COLLECTIVE PRACTICE? HOW DO WE STAY AWAKE TO WHAT’S COMING WHILE REMAINING BOTH STEADY AND RESPONSIVE  IN SERVICE OF THE ERA SHIFT?


 

As the world balances on the edge of chaos, we can only take one step at a time. There is now a body of us practicing Collective Alchemy, holding the crucible together over time, witnessing the Era Shift as it unfolds. What is being burned away, what is being alchemised and what is the gold being brought forth in the process? The circle continues opening: you are invited to join us!


 

Orienting the next Portal Day calls on the arc of the journey so far:

The pattern of opening a portal to practice Collective Alchemy twice monthly is interweaving a two-stranded dual path together, like the double helix of DNA.
Since 8 May we have been alternating between the Via Positiva (exploring transpersonal, Integral consciousness) and the Via Negativa (burning off the personal dross that blocks access to it). On the Via Negativa, we have been exploring the alchemical phases within the Alchemical Procedure Matrix: eradicating the false roots that distract us from living life as who we really are.
On 14 August we will enter our 10th cycle of collective practice together, moving deeper into the second octave. Our steps will return to the Via Positiva, as we continue to develop our capacity as alchemists exploring together what it means to transmute consciousness.
 

Framing the calling question:

AS THE WAVES OF CHANGE INCREASE AND INTENSIFY, WHAT IS OURS TO DO AS FELLOW ALCHEMISTS IN COLLECTIVE PRACTICE? HOW DO WE STAY AWAKE TO WHAT’S COMING WHILE REMAINING BOTH STEADY AND RESPONSIVE  IN SERVICE OF THE ERA SHIFT?

 
The cartoon image below, by Graeme Mackay is just one representation of the wave-set in motion in the era shift. Add or interchange: systemic racism, political meltdown, sex-trafficking, 6th mass extinction etc, etc , we can be under no illusion that this is a time requiring presence, practice and resilience. 
 
 
As named in the Foreword to the Collective Alchemy Practice Guide: “These and other global dynamics are alchemising an intense and potentially devastating unraveling, exacerbating hyper-complex, high-amplitude wave action, ushering in increasing disequilibrium and uncertainty so that, for many, this situation is at last becoming unavoidable and must be faced. Engaging with this reality in a generative way requires us to encounter and metabolise these potentially foreshortening consequences for all life.”

Preparation for the calls
:

The questions for this Portal Day invite us into an inquiry as to the ways in which we are interconnected with the wider world and discerning our place —individually and together—as alchemists for being of service. To prepare for Friday’s calls, you are invited to read:

‘The Bigger Picture’.
