A Findhorn Foundation Special Event
2–8 July 2016
40th Anniversary of the Game of Transformation
The Planetary Game is a large-scale version of the Game of Transformation. Born originally here at Findhorn 40 years ago as a way of representing our approach to life, the Game is one of the most creative impulses to come out of the community. Today players and trained facilitators engage with the different versions of it in over 40 countries around the world, and the box Game has been translated into 9 different languages.
The Planetary Game involves up to 120 participants in five Playing Areas. Focused around a life-sized Game path on the floor, it provides an exciting, multi-dimensional opportunity to work creatively together to bring insight, healing and direction to areas of both collective and personal concern. It allows us to connect with and honour our individual paths and contribution within the larger whole, while also engaging our hearts, minds and spirits with collective issues and challenges in today’s world.
Here is the purpose we will focus on and work with in this event:
In a spirit of partnership,
gracefully to stand in and contribute our authenticity and presence,
engaging with the world in creative and fulfilling ways,
and shaping and energising the emerging future
And the Playing Areas we will engage with are:
Relationship and Identity
Nature and Ecology
Community and Systems
The Subtle Worlds
The Emerging Future
The Game begins with you choosing a Playing Area to work in. As we are all involved in all of these, collectively we will deepen into each of them and learn from the interplay between them.
Within your chosen Area, you will then formulate an intention that is personally meaningful for you, and select a role to play: Player, Insight, Setback, Angel or Witness.
Play then commences and costumed participants representing the Playing Areas use a die, free will or intuition to move along the path on the floor. Different squares present opportunities for interaction, growth, breakthroughs, recognition of shared strengths and challenges, and learning from one another’s work.
The Planetary Game amplifies both personal and collective issues. It engages our hopes and dreams for a positive future, highlighting strengths and resources, and pointing to new directions. It also reflects current limiting patterns and their underlying causal dynamics, and gives us the opportunity to reshape them
Although there is personal growth, insight and healing, the Planetary Game is played at far more than just the personal level. Its effectiveness depends on our capacity to recognise ourselves in one another, to see the world within ourselves and ourselves within the world, and to respond accordingly. It requires us to take responsibility for being co-creative participants in the wellbeing of a wholeness larger than just our own.
We are each a fractal of the whole, of the soul and body of humanity, of the soul and body of the world. The currents of our times move through and come to focus in each one of us. Our work in the Game is to contain and hold these trends within ourselves and, from this alchemical process, to allow the makings of a new consciousness to emerge and give shape to new forms.
Do come and join us as we bring collective wisdom to both personal and global issues, explore our interconnectedness, and engage our capacity to generate positive pathways and presence in these extraordinary and exciting times.
