His award-winning book, The Patterning Instinct: A Cultural History of Humanity’s Search for Meaning, examines the way humans have made meaning from the cosmos since hunter-gatherer times.

About From Me to We
As the pandemic has changed us in ways we are just comprehending, several living questions are: How can we live our values in a more meaningful way? How do we move from the paradigm of individual spirituality to something that feels more aligned with the story of interbeing? How do we have a relationship with the sacred that allows us to show up in an engaged way – recognising that we are all in the same storm, but not in the same boat.
We are living in a crisis of spirit and separation – from our true nature, each other and this beautiful planet. Navigating a spiritual path within late stage capitalism is challenging for all of us. As many of us have moved away from organised religion into a hybrid of different cultures and practices, whilst wellbeing has become an industry – we feel the damage that New Age spirituality has caused. It has distorted us from an engaged and embodied approach to collective healing and liberation – in many cases fostering greater separation, individualism and escapism – and doing little to dismantle and transform the systems of power and separation that drive so much suffering in our world.
Many of us feel we have become a product of this time and these systems, with a focus on individual success and external comparison – fuelling these very crises rather than seeking to heal their shared roots. Despite good intentions, we find ourselves navigating the complexities of these times rather clumsily and being part of the problem. We now also exist within ‘cancel culture’, where questioning the dominant narrative can lead to being outcast and deplatformed, it’s a challenging time we live in.
If you are feeling called to deepen your understanding of this time, unravel some outdated patterns and explore how you can grow and serve in your community, ‘all that we are’ invites you to join us on this living inquiry into how we move from Me to We.
This is a collective journey to transmute and heal from the hyper-individualised and capitalist shadows that too often fuel isolation, inadequacy and polarity. Our deepest intention is to create space to discover and embody a spirituality of belonging, wholeness, and action – to live a We, that is both more inclusive and expansive in these divided times and in deeper relation with the more-than-human world.
Our starting point is not with all the answers. We don’t offer you experts or gurus. We have good questions, and a willingness to sit with the uncertainty this great turning asks of us. We will bow at the altar of emergence and hold space for what longs to be birthed through us as we remember ALL THAT WE ARE.
We have gathered a collective of curious souls for this inquiry, in both the facilitators and each of you taking part. Together, we can explore what it means to be human at this time and how to show up more powerfully as we go on this six week learning journey.
From Me to We is the first experience in our new series ‘Dismantling New Age Spirituality’, which comes as we let go of ‘The Future Is Beautiful’ to embrace all that we are, all that we are becoming and all that is possible.
“Much as I enjoy popular New Age commentary on love, I am often struck by the dangerous narcissism fostered by spiritual rhetoric that pays so much attention to individual self-improvement and so little to the practice of love within the context of community. Packaged as a commodity, spirituality becomes no different from an exercise program. While it may leave the consumer feeling better about his or her life, its power to enhance our communion with ourselves and others in a sustained way is inhibited” Bell Hooks (All About Love: New Visions)
