Embodying Higher Consciousness: Practices for a Higher Frequency of Life

A Four-Day Intensive Training, May 14 – 17, 2015

Novato, San Francisco Bay Area, California

Booking information below

We are living in an extraordinary age where there is an immense acceleration in consciousness available to us. How much do we allow this to permeate through us, so that our different ways of knowing – our somatic senses, our subtle and psychic capacities, become ever more integrated, as our ground in life?

In this year’s training we will inquire into our potential for embodying a higher frequency of consciousness through our everyday life, work and relationships. We will explore those inner capacities that enable us to tap more directly into our complete individual and collective potential.

We will use inner tools to explore the transformative power of bringing a deeper quality of presence to ourselves and each other. We will learn to notice where we tend to disconnect from higher consciousness or from life around us, inquiring into those unconscious, often inherited structures inside ourselves that are next available for awareness and healing. We will practice bringing light and inner movement to wherever we hold back from fuller feeling, contact and expression – becoming a clearer space for an ever-higher frequency of life, and exploring the evolutionary implications of this in terms of our individual and collective responsibility.

The training will include the following themes:

Inner and outer attunement

  • Synchronizing inner and outer perceptual worlds and realities, deepening a transparent culture of feedback to further embed integrated perceptual capacities and leverage their potential,
  • Exploring the subtle realms of life through our feeling centers and relational space, attuning to the informational realms and their invitation (subtle-energy competence and response-ability), refining our capacity to discern how we are called to respond to and act upon higher intelligence,

Structures of consciousness

  • Inquiring into the form and evolutionary function of contracted inner structures of consciousness through witnessing practice and attunement,
  • Optimizing the potential in these inner structures for movement and healing on individual and collective levels (personal and cultural trauma work),

Presencing and primary knowing

  • Practicing different qualities of presencing and inquiring into its transformative impact at transpersonal levels (presencing structures of self and the world, radical inclusion), stabilizing and grounding presencing practice through our lives,
  • Cultivating capacity for primary knowing through attention and attunement (amplifying inner coherence), leveraging our awakening potential.

We will use small and large group exercises, dialogue and presentations, systemic constellational process and guided inner work. No previous experience is required and everyone is welcome, while those who do have experience will find the training a powerful aid to further development. A strong field for this work has been emerging over recent years in North America, enabling all those who consent to higher consciousness more immediate access to dimensions of growth and unfoldment in their life purpose and calling.

Here is a beautiful slideshow from our group-work last year:

There will also be other events in California: including an Open Evening on 6 May (hosted by Bay Area Integral in Berkeley), a day devoted to Cultivating Radical Innovation Ability on 11 May (at the Impact HUB, Oakland), and an Open Afternoon on Higher Consciousness in Systemic Healing Work on 12 May also in Berkeley.

“Remarkable. Powerful. Extraordinary. Deeply healing. Important work, timely and timeless.”

“One of the most powerful processes I’ve ever encountered – and I’ve done a great many processes on my path. Stephen has a way of working that is dynamic and simple to understand and which can help heal long-held patterns.”

“Stephen is doing what I consider to be some of the most important work on the planet today: I can’t recommend his work enough and can’t wait to experience it again.”

“The deepest work I have ever done and it has penetrated my entire being.”

“Through Stephen’s work I have a much deeper awareness of myself through a higher frequency that I call love. This has brought me closer to my true nature and enabled me to break through blockages in my life and work.”

“It is a gift that Stephen’s work comes just now. Over and over again I feel his intuition and energy-transfer as so rich and transformative.”

“Embodying Higher Consciousness is a fitting title for your work – though the time we had together is long over my life has subtly changed, attuned to what is essential.”

“Thank you deeply for having supported my path. This has started to heal an absence I have felt all my life – of learning and sharpening my skills and abilities from a man of clear inner strength. Being in contact with you, with what you infuse into this world, gives me something exceptional to aspire to.”
