A message to the Deep Adaptation Community from fellow DA contributors / volunteers, Dean Walker and Matthew Painton...

 

Welcome to a Five-Saturday series / transformative introduction to the global Collapse-Aware conversation and community. Starting on June 26 these weekly gatherings are scheduled for each Saturday through July24. 

This is both an immersive introduction to the Collapse-Aware conversation and community... and, an invitation to join a deep-dive Community of Practice - as we gather and share our own Practices of Reconnection, and expand our capacities to be present in the face of larger and larger stressors.

This course is meant to be a shared exploration of, "What are the core skills, capacities and practices that are called for in these predicament-laden times?"

The purpose of this work is: Offering transformative support and resources to people bravely facing human-caused collapse of Earth and Human Systems.

Please read on for more details about this new course, and, about this body of work...

We are very excited to announce the launch of our newest gateway offering,

Dancing at the Edge: Transformative Resilience Facing Our Very Human Predicament.

 ***

Welcome to a transformative introduction to the global Collapse-Aware conversation and community.

This five-week course is designed to be as useful and empowering for a relative newcomer to this deeply challenging conversation - as it can be for someone who has a long and intimate awareness of human-caused collapse of Earth and Human Systems.

The world in which we are now living is a world rife with human-caused collapse of Earth and Human Systems. The global predicaments that were vague and debatable just a couple of years ago, are now breathing down our collective neck with a savage boldness and urgency.

 

At the same time the now-bankrupt, toxic structures and perverse incentives of our Business as Usual Human Operating System (BAUHOS) are working overtime to keep an illusion of normalcy over the cruelty, injustices, inequities, and extinction-causing systems that are doubling-down, even as billions suffer and all measures of human devastation skyrocket.

 

We offer this course to promote the building of core skill-sets and capacities that can assist any member of the collapse-aware community to be stronger, more centered, inspired, and reconnected, no matter their view or estimate of collapse of Earth or Human Systems.

 

A few of the elements we will touch on in Dancing at the Edge:

 

Sensemaking: Somehow untangling together, this global cynical chaos that has replaced civil discourse and common sense.

Reconnection with The Web of Life: At the heart of our human-caused collapse of Earth and Human Systems is our disconnection from: Deeper Self, Other People, Earth and Soul.

Reclaiming Center, Agency, Presence, so often lost in the
dehumanizing structures and perverse incentives of our
Business as Usual world.

There are many people that will continue to deny human-caused collapse of Earth and Human Systems to the bitter end. (Perhaps most people on Earth)

 

In this supportive learning environment, we are committed to cultivating: optimal awareness, systems thinking, and the cultivation of supportive circles and communities.

 

It is in these circles and communities that the often challenging inner work (Some may call it, Deep Adaptation) that is called for in these times, can be cultivated.

 

A few of the practices we will introduce and encourage in Dancing at the Edge:

 

Self-Regulation / Co-Regulation

 Mindfulness and other embodied practices

 Basic Shadow Dynamics

 Small Group Facilitation Basics / Circling

 Anatomy of (and costs of) individual and collective Disconnection

 Practices of Reconnection

 Expanding facility with healthy emotional range, including grief.

We hope you will join us in this five week gateway course, and perhaps in this Community of Practice and support.
