Are you feeling despair about the current political climate — not only in America but around the world?
You’re not alone.
The dramatic escalation of polarization, mass protests and assaults on democratic foundations as well as basic human decency, affects us all.
The really important question for those on a conscious path is, “How do we turn our current circumstances into a catalyst for the awakening, healing and leadership the world so desperately needs?”
In other words... how do we move beyond unproductive cycles of reactivity and begin to reframe the challenges we’re experiencing as opportunities to grow and expand our capacity to create positive change?
Aikido teacher George Leonard used to say, “Take the hit as a gift.” In fact, a “hit” or “attack” is raw energy that, if worked with correctly, can actually be deeply empowering.
The Aikido metaphor is a perfect one for our time... when so many posts in our media feeds can get our emotions boiling!
We need to transform our relationship to these circumstances so we can navigate the chaos with clarity and joy (yes, joy!).
There’s a real urgency for us to awaken to this next level of consciousness and take positive actions to help our families, communities and countries navigate the perilous times ahead.
And yet, as a conscious person, you might wonder if the current activism you’re witnessing is needlessly polarizing, melodramatic and even corrosive. It might feel cathartic, but is it opening other hearts and minds to new possibilities?
What if instead, you could become fully engaged in a way that brings more wholeness, enlightenment and freedom? What if you could stand passionately for the evolution of the whole... and emerge feeling lighter, freer and more empowered?
Terry Patten has answers (and provocative questions!) that open you to new ways of viewing the challenges now facing us.
Terry, one of the foremost integral thinkers and activists of our day, is now focusing on how we can each apply the wisdom of integrated, holistic practice to become what he calls “ integral revolutionaries. ”
Terry worked closely with the Institute of HeartMath, leading the team that developed its first heart-rate variability device. He also worked with Ken Wilber to translate his brilliant integral theory (used at the highest levels of business and government) into a truly Integral Life Practice. Even more importantly, Terry embodies 40 years of wisdom as a serious student and teacher of authentic spirituality.
In this special online event, he’ll explore how you can open your heart, expand your understanding, anchor yourself in sacred wisdom and contribute to cultural evolution.
He’ll light the way beyond simplistic slogans into a rich dance of evolutionary inquiry and action that calls more of your spirit and soul forward in the midst of tumultuous times.
During the hour-long session, Terry will share with you:
Join us for an illuminating hour that will help you open the door to a new, fresh and profound relationship with your own heart!
