Invitation to practice Collective Alchemy – May 8

Friday May 08, 2020

In these times of breakdown and breakthrough, how do we develop our individual and collective ability to discern what is true in the moment?

These twice-monthly invitations to participate in a Collective Alchemy circle are a taster of what this practice can offer. Each round of calls is drawing us gradually more deeply into the field of practice. Our third iteration will continue that journey.

In last week’s call, we saw that one of the purposes of Collective Alchemy is to burn away the personal ‘dross’ that clouds the individual’s capacity for clear transpersonal consciousness. Another of its purposes is to then bring that clear transpersonal consciousness to bear, collectively, on matters of vital concern for humanity at this time of epochal shift.

In our first two rounds of calls, the questions we leaned into were designed to bring personal issues to the fore. For our next calls (Friday, 8 May), we would like to invite you into a collective dive into the Bigger Picture, through the following question:

In these times of breakdown and breakthrough, how do we develop our individual and collective ability to discern what is true in the moment?

Framing for this upcoming invitation to practice, Friday 8 May: 
There is more at work in these days than just a global pandemic; humanity as a whole is entering a phase shift – a rite of passage – from adolescence into maturity. The current pandemic is forcing us into a cocoon-like state where this transformation is starting to take hold. It is important to recognise that this shift is happening at levels which are quite beyond the capacity of human agency and will to influence or even understand. What we can do is learn to surrender into the ‘Portal’ of these times, learn to be with and navigate the flows in every moment. While survival is not guaranteed, there is evidence of a newly emerging consciousness that can support us if we are able to lean in and embrace it. The practices of Collective Alchemy have a role to play in this. To begin to explore the potential of this moment together, we invite you to join us in collective inquiry:

In these times of breakdown and breakthrough, how do we develop our individual and collective ability to discern what is true in the moment?

Be welcome to come explore this question,
in a sacred space, in a sacred time,
in a collective crucible,
where Mother Gaia is holding the whole.

Preparation for the call:
To get the most out of this experience, and to enhance your own capacity to contribute to the inquiry, we invite you into some preparatory reading of excerpts from the Practice Guide before coming to the call. We recommend you to set aside about 90 minutes for this reading, if you can.

Part I: The Bigger Picture (includes 4 short videos)

Part V: Insights from the Journey (an example of the kinds of insights a Collective Alchemy journey can produce).
