Group Work

This dynamic form of group work invites us to trade our usual agendas for a desire to serve the whole – and to suspend existing discoveries for solutions that we have not imagined yet. Most events start with a short talk about a recent highlight from the Work interspersed with silence, deep listening, experiential inquiry and dream work.


The design of our week-long gatherings often create space for participants to share their gifts through painting, writing, music, movement, nature walks, and other activities that help us to tap into our individual and collective wisdom. Some people take part on an ad hoc basis, while others form a long-term learning community.


From the outset, this unorthodox, “creative” approach to the awakening of an intrinsic divine potential was disruptive to the norms that govern the leadership and psycho-spiritual arenas, even among seasoned facilitators and guides. No offense is intended, only fresh, more liberating insight.
