Working With Subtle Energy: Embodied Skills & Capacities for Life

To promote the upcoming week-long workshop at Findhorn in Scotland this September (8-14), here is a new four-minute version of a recent interview, enjoy!

This event is now booking and all are welcome to join us for a whole week with the higher frequencies of consciousness – most especially of love, as we are also exploring in the current online course, and all this in the heart of the world-famous spiritual community. All the information on the week is here.

Life and Love in the Higher Frequencies

Reporting on the recent we-space events in North America…

The events in my North American tour – in Kansas, in California, and on Vancouver Island in Canada – broke new ground in ways of working with and embodying the higher frequencies of consciousness available to us now; ways which open us to new dimensions of we-space with immense implications for the development of the field of this work and our human evolution in consciousness:

** A new potency in how collective energetic containers are formed, held and deepened, and how higher frequencies are hosted there. Through alignment with the teachings and relational practices we are invited to work as collectives in ways which represent a considerable upgrade. Experience of the higher energies is increasingly spontaneous, even to those very new to the field, and points to much as-yet untapped potential;

** Layers of conditioned energetic imprinting at the level of human culture and of the individual are more quickly and transparently surfaced, presenced, and often transmuted with an ease and immediacy not known before. The ease with which processes now arise and unfold transcends the aspect of ‘time taken’, and resembles a kind of instantaneous combustion of inner structures which is profound and far-reaching; time as we have known it in process-terms is seemingly collapsed;

** A powerful frequency of higher Love becomes palpable, inclusive and uncompromising in the wholeness of its fiery embrace, as we are experiencing in the online course too (Awakening to a Higher Frequency of Love). We are being lived through Love in ways that transcend previous understanding and experience of love. We more appreciate how all Life is woven through and of Love, and that its invitation to us – primarily through the heart centre – is the new locus of our lives and centre of transmission out into the world. Such is the light of this Love that whatever we may have separated ourselves from before – apparently as ‘not love’ – is embraced. Lower vibrational experiences of love through which the personality is structured, for instance of unworthiness, scarcity or insufficiency, are discerned and hosted differently, so that our energetic investment there is withdrawn, to healing effect;

** An attuned and precise quality of presence through the relational practices, enabling us to surface and discern the vibrational character of particular imprinted structures, for example of fear, so as to hold and include these within a frame and frequency of higher Love. This enables more source-wounding to be presenced, often with systemic implications for the lineages through which much imprinting is inherited. The precision with which we are discerning and making distinctions within inner landscapes is upgraded, and reflects a more evolved capacity to attune through surface symptoms to source, now presencing there with more accuracy and ease;

** Nourishment from non-physical beings at higher dimensions of reality is also strengthened, through channelled teachings and dialogue (as in the online course). This allows high-vibrational information to be shared and disseminated, cohering we-spaces through a strong energetic transmission which is encoded with higher light-levels of life. While dialogue like this around themes of current inquiry in a group can be potent and inspiring, the impact of the transmission itself will probably be better understood through continuing research in forthcoming we-space experiments, such as in Findhorn in June.

I am grateful to all those who shared these spaces with me in great courage and vulnerability.

Inquiring into the Self and the Collective

Some inspiring days this week in the Findhorn spiritual community, Scotland, inquiring into traumatised imprints at the level of Self and Collective, in this case the community itself, as a means of bringing higher intelligence and movement down into some of the wounded structures here. The group worked at the interface of individual and collective wounding: how our disowned inner structures are carried into and expressed through relational and organisational community issues and processes, which we then dissociate from, so as to ‘protect’ the wounding and its restoration within ourselves.

Using subtle relational practices and systemic work to explore, presence and host ourselves in higher vibrational ways, thereby inviting and allowing the light and grace of awareness into our lives and more of the spaces-in-between, and illuminating especially the complex interweavings between the Self (and its self-preservation) and any collective in which we participate. How humbling it is to perceive the ways in which we project those wounded aspects of ourselves onto the collective level and then strive and usually struggle to heal there. The higher frequencies of Love available to us (which we will be working with in the upcoming online course) always invite and resource us ‘to trace back to origin’, so that we learn how to progressively take-back our ‘problems’ from ‘the world’ and host them within ourselves, where we once most needed and longed to be met and were not, thus fuelling our dissociation from wholeness.

High vibrational We-space work like this, when committed to within groups willing to represent their collective, reveals more of the higher evolutionary purpose in any human collective movement or structure, bringing next-level intelligence and understanding, compassion and creativity wherever the movement of life has slowed and we are recycling our woundedness through painful and repetitive symptoms.

Honouring all those drawn to working together at this level, and opening to further possibilities within the next collectives in the USA and Canada in March/April, and back here at Findhorn in September. A few last places also remain in the online course beginning next week.

Personal Review of the Field of Higher Consciousness Work in 2017

For many of us, it’s been a wild year. We’ve been taken to new edges and beyond. Many of you – like me – have received huge support through higher consciousness: we have surfaced new vulnerabilities and embodied more possibility, have cultivated new sensitivities and more capacity to contain the unimaginable.

It has often been hard. We have been stretched and opened, finding that few of the old ways will work anymore. Allowing in more consciousness changes everything. There is no resting place other than in more of our potential and purpose here, more of our shared and often grieving heart – together. In the events and practice-spaces of our lives, the higher consciousness that has become available is of a particular frequency. To me, its vibration is palpable, sometimes urgent, always loving. It comes as a gift and a blessing: moving and illuminating us wherever we will listen, dip deep within ourselves and act from this new place. Since the summer especially, the frequencies available through the subtle energy group-work have responded in potent ways to the commitment in many of us to grow and to embrace more of our woundedness on behalf of the whole human collective and its healing.

My own calling has changed. In one sense there is less choosing: a more embodied listening and alert capacity to follow through. I am in awe of the impact of this, and am often humbled as I discover new layers of resistance and fear. Many of you in many countries have joined me in the practices: learning to offer more of yourselves to life, bearing witness to what arises in you and with others, inquiring there and including more wholeness – and there is always more. Much more is available to us and we are supported in every essential step, more than we know. Higher consciousness is here to move in the world – embodied through us as we consent to craft a new world consciously, owning up to more of our responsibility in this.

Each of you who join me in this field is supported in a deeper surrendering and in a releasing of what no longer serves you, a presencing of what before was buried and not possible to bear, a re-ordering of priorities, and a consecration of yourself to the person you are here to become.

Recent Inquiry for Men

Deep inquiry, subtle listening and witnessing, laughter and healing – within my men’s group over several days in Germany this month. Which inherited imprints are we still carrying and recycling in our lives, from where or whom, and how costly might it be to let these go, and how?

And as men, how do we dance between coming to stand and embody our own inner axis, our unique expression of divine essence – which can mean walking alone, while staying connected and true to each other?

In my new online course, “Awakening to a Higher Frequency of Love“, these inquiries will continue, and be pursued too in virtual spaces for men and for women.

Higher Consciousness in We-Space – an Interview

As part of the recent Global Online We-Space Summit, I met with Michael Brabant who interviewed me on my Embodying Higher Consciousness work within we-space.

In the dialogue, I explore the nuanced and paradoxical nature of inviting higher consciousness and collective intelligence through subtle somatic experience and transparent relational spaces. We cover the importance of approaching and being in each practice-space and each moment freshly, being humble in our narrative of what arises within we-space and its broader implications, while also honouring how presencing of personal experience has far-reaching ripples in the collective at large. I highlight the importance of finding coherence horizontally with other practitioners in a group – fostering transparency and intimacy, and which you can watch a demonstration of in the other recorded practitioner-session here below.

While practicing like this, we seek to simultaneously nourish connectedness to higher vertical intelligence through moment-to-moment clarity. In our conversation I also cover how engaging in we-space can disrupt default cultural tendencies – to support each other to be present to what is actually occurring and the emotional impact of this, rather than colluding in each other’s avoidance of the intensity of what is occurring in our world and in our emotional bodies. Enjoy the dialogue!

The Summit came about following the book published last year to which I contributed a chapter: “Cohering The Integral We-Space: Engaging Collective Emergence, Wisdom and Healing in groups” and which you can find here.

Higher Consciousness in We-Space – Practicing Online

As part of the recent Global Online We-Space Summit, I met with five fellow practitioners** to record an hour-long online we-space practice session, which you can now view here.

We began by speaking from our experiences of the inner and intersubjective spaces that open up through my Embodying Higher Consciousness practices, particularly when invoking higher frequencies of consciousness. As we allowed a deeper witnessing within and between ourselves to arise, we found ourselves participating in a powerful and emergent space, one where a higher stream of intelligence and frequency of love became palpable. For those versed in subtle energy relational practices, live we-space experiments such as these can become potent incubators for next-level skills and capacities, and can support committed practitioners to tap into the deeper multi-leveled potentials of their collective spaces. Enjoy the session!

The Summit came about following the book published last year to which I contributed a chapter: “Cohering The Integral We-Space: Engaging Collective Emergence, Wisdom and Healing in groups” and which you can find here.

** My fellow practitioners here are: Nancy Fabiano, Daniel Auf der Mauer, Ginny Nadler, John McCourt, and Eva Giedt, with my appreciation for taking part in the experiment.

Higher Consciousness for Young Men

Brotherhood of Men is a series of workshops to empower young men to become more authentic, courageous and vulnerable – a clearer channel for spirit and soul. We invite teachers and speakers to share their knowledge, teachings and wisdom. These events are non profit and hosted by the YoungVision association.

Higher consciousness for young men

Through our questions, our dreams, our passion and pain as men, we find consciousness – and the possibility of discovering more in ourselves. Working creatively with awareness supports us in the many challenges and invitations of our lives. There are higher levels of consciousness available to us when we meet each other deeply, and in these two days we invite you to bring your questions and alive-issues, your problems and next-potential. We will be working in English, using dialogue, inner work, and systemic constellations, and we will be creative with language if any translation is needed. We also invite the presence of a few older men, to witness and support our work together.

Accommodation:
– You can sleep in a dormitory or a hut
– Private rooms available for 29 €/ night

Course Fee:
– 90 € (incl. Accommodation & organic food)
– This price doesn’t include any payment for Stephen, please feel free to make a donation to him according to any benefit you feel you receive.

Registration:
