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If you are feeling called to deepen your understanding of this time, unravel some outdated patterns and explore how you can grow and serve in your community,  ‘all that we are’ invites you to join us on this living inquiry into how we move from Me to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 

 

Your invitation:

Who is it for?

This journey is for those who identify as spiritual beings, as activists, parents, changemakers, future ancestors, global citizens, the curious – active and aspiring – all of us who long to understand how to best serve during these rapidly changing times. It is for those who feel called to move from an individualised relationship with the sacred to a more collective, expansive, embodied and engaged experience with other kindred souls.

What do we hope for and why now?

We hope that each one of us joining this learning journey will be able to contribute to life and your community in a deeper and more meaningful way. It is our deepest hope for this journey to be a collective inquiry with our existing and emerging community- including listeners of the podcast and the speakers- as we re-imagine, expand, and re-define the we in our new name- all that we are.  Whilst we recognise many of us might be a little tired of Zoom, we honour the gift that we can come together with ease from all around the globe and create an enlivening and energising gathering. We feel the questions of this learning journey are timely and are emergent for this moment, and we are excited to hold space for this inquiry.   

We are offering a brave space of healing and transformation. We know that this can’t be done alone, and that these sacred containers where we gather from all over the world to explore key themes of our time have powerful ripples into individual lives as well as our collective consciousness. And we bow to your courage to want to come on this journey with us, and serve the collective journey we are all on as humans at this time. All are welcome on From Me to We. All you need is to feel that resonance with these questions and this longing for a more beautiful future. If this invitation stirs you in any way, please join us. 

This learning journey is different from our previous offerings and other online courses you may have experienced. Everything about this learning journey is emergent and new – bringing together speakers, embodiment sessions and conversation salons. All the sessions will offer that ‘all that we are’ deep listening where these are energetic experiences – not just talks to passively listen to. At the heart of From Me to We are themes that explore vital questions of this time. We have gathered a faculty of 21 humans that hold deep insights and will speak to what we feel we all need to understand during these changing times. It is a unique gathering of souls co-creating something new together. 

We will not be offering this again at a later date as these are THE questions of this time, and the time for this is now. The recordings will be available to those who register. 

We know a gathering like this can have a deep impact in all that each of us does from here – and that this is how change happens. We call in all of you that have some kind of influence (even if you don’t see it that way) – as a parent, community leader, social entrepreneur, yoga teacher, social media influencer, etc – if you have a space where you share in some way – where you are creating a more beautiful future – we need you to be part of From Me to We. 

We know this course will create ripples in our global community that will create shifts in our futures and consciousness. We invite you to be a part of this.

The Themes

Hosted by:

(formally known as the future is beautiful.) We explore the weave between activism, the sacred, creativity and regeneration. The spaces where our inner and outer worlds dance. From healing trauma to nature connection to new technologies to ancient wisdom - it’s time for us to move beyond silos and into an integrated way of being. Every one of us has ideas and personal experiences to share that can lead us to a more beautiful future. Despite the challenges we face as a global community or the pressures we meet in our daily lives, when we stop and dare to listen, to ask ourselves the big questions and to share what we are already doing and envisioning, we create the futures of our wildest dreams. And we begin to embody all that we are, all that we are becoming and all that is possible.

Types of Sessions: 

Speaker Sessions: Each of these six sessions will have three guest speakers in conversation on the questions for that theme. They will each reflect on the theme and the questions – and then the conversation will open up between them. These are hosted by Amisha Ghadiali, in the open and expansive way that you know from the podcast, giving space for new thinking, and perspective to emerge. These sessions will be unique as these speakers have never all come together around these themes before – and they have been curated to bring diversity and for us to both learn and unlearn through this process. The sessions won’t be shared outside of this course and this group, and you will have access to them to watch in your own time, or to come back to as a resource. We will give transcripts of these as well to all participants.  

Embodiment sessions: We believe that embodiment is a key aspect of healing. Facilitated by Ava Riby-Williams, these will be a chance to physically explore and integrate the themes that we explore each week on this learning journey. In each session Ava will hold the group in a mixture of guided movement sequences, free movement, guided visualisations, and playful exercises to Somatically explore our individual and collective truths. Each session will include practises to regulate our nervous systems, and will be intentionally crafted to welcome people with different levels of movement experience and ability. Sessions, like all others in the course, will be held on zoom. For some sections of each class, practising with camera off will be welcomed. At other times, participants will be gently encouraged to practise with cameras on to experience our “we” more fully and transformatively. For this reason joining live, wherever possible, is highly encouraged. It will be helpful for you to wear loose, comfortable clothes and bring a speaker and a yoga mat, even though you might also be invited to participate off of your mat at times. These sessions will recorded (only Ava, not you), and you will have them in your course library so you can keep coming back to revisit them. 

Discussion Salons, Opening and Closing Ceremonies: Community is a key aspect of ‘all that we are’ and having space to process what comes up. These sessions will be facilitated by Amisha Ghadiali & Hely Cameron. There will be space to get to know each other, share questions on what we have experienced, and share in small groups. These sessions will be recorded in part (not the group sharing) and we will pause the recording if anyone wants to speak or ask a question and doesn’t want to be recorded. For the parts where those live are in small groups, we will hold space for you to do the contemplating alone (with pen and paper) so that when you watch in your own time, you receive the benefits of this space to reflect and share. You will all be encouraged to share through the duration of the course and afterwards in our dedicated group on the ‘all that we are’ app. 

Do I have to participate in everything?:  We understand that three zooms a week is a lot especially as we are now integrating more of our ‘in person’ worlds. We also know that some of you will be joining from timezones where live participation won’t be possible. We know you learn in different ways, and so we wanted to offer everything that we felt was important, knowing full well that some will come to everything live, and others will watch again later, or may not feel the calling to every type of session. This is totally welcome. You can find your own mix of live attendance, using the recordings and choosing your own pathway through this journey.

LIVE or RECORDINGS

We have designed this so there are multiple pathways of learning as we know everyone’s learning styles are different.

You will have access to the speaker and embodiment sessions as a resource to keep coming back to. The salons will be part recorded (the group work can’t be but you will have the group questions to contemplate).

If you can pay the full price and in one payment this supports us in the creation of the course and allows us to know how many places we can gift to those who have been marginalised by our systems. The full price reflects the value of this experience. 

However there is no shame or judgement in which option you choose, the most important thing is that nobody is turned away from this experience – as all of us who feel called need to be present for our collective liberation. 

The Codes for Sliding Scale:

Click on the pink box and this will take you to a payment page and at the cart you can type in the code if you are opting for a lower priced tier in the scale.  

For payments in full you can use the codes SKY or EARTH or WATERS at check out (it will then update the amount).

For instalment payments the codes are SKY* or EARTH* or WATERS* (as this makes sure the discount is on both payments). Make sure if paying in two instalments you put the * (star symbol) at the end of the word – as this will mean BOTH payments are offered at a discount. 

As you decide what amount to pay, we ask that you not only consider your present-day financial situation governed by income but also factors including:

  • your access to wealth in the global context;
  • historical discrimination faced by your peoples;
  • your financial wealth (do you have retirement savings?);
  • your access to income and financial wealth, both current and anticipated (how easily could you earn more income compared to other people in your country and in the world? do you expect to receive an inheritance?);
  • people counting on your financial livelihood including dependents and community members;
  • and the socio-economic conditions of your locale (relative to other places in your country and in the world).

(Thank you to Bayo Akomolafe from Episode 13 & E137 of ‘all that we are’ podcast for these considerations in how to choose your price). 

We wanted to make this a high value offering and also affordable so you get access to all 19 sessions for this one price. We are also giving away a month’s membership to ‘all that we are’ with every place. 

Scholarships:

We offering some scholarship places for those who need them if the lowest tier doesn’t work for you. These will be offered as pay what you can to as many as we can (this depends on how many higher paying participants join and pay it forward). We especially want to make this course accessible to those in the global south, and those who are not currently in work. You can apply for a scholarship here. 

Any questions, please email Charli and she will get back to you.

Even though we have begun, you can still join us, or scroll down for the individual speaker events. 

We are the Ones We’ve Been Waiting For

You have been telling people that this is the Eleventh Hour, now you must go back and tell the people that this is the Hour. And there are things to be considered…

Where are you living?
What are you doing?
What are your relationships?
Are you in right relation?
Where is your water?

Know your garden.
It is time to speak your truth.
Create your community.
Be good to each other.
And do not look outside yourself for your leader.

Then he clasped his hands together, smiled, and said, “This could be a good time! There is a river flowing now very fast. It is so great and swift that there are those who will be afraid. They will try to hold on to the shore. They will feel they are being torn apart and will suffer greatly. Know the river has its destination. The elders say we must let go of the shore, push off into the middle of the river, keep our eyes open, and our heads above the water.

And I say, see who is in there with you and celebrate. At this time in history, we are to take nothing personally, least of all ourselves. For the moment that we do, our spiritual growth and journey come to a halt.

The time of the lone wolf is over. Gather yourselves! Banish the word ’struggle’ from your attitude and your vocabulary. All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration.

We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.
