There is a need in the world today for understanding and practicing a deeper form of activism that can complement what we can do physically and socially for each other.

David Spangler

As subtle as well as physical beings, we have the capacity to influence and bless our world on a number of different levels. Learning to do this creates an engaged activism that opens transformative possibilities in our individual and collective lives and for our future.

This engaged, subtle activism offers an important and powerful complement to physical and social action, as well as a wider context for it. It's a way of adding our energy in a positive way to the forces that are seeking to create wholeness in our world ... a way of holding the world in our hearts; a way of blessing.

All subtle activism of course begins with a subtle activist, the configuration we each bring to a particular situation. We will explore what it is to be a 'standing activist', an agent and generator of wholeness able to blend the personal with the transpersonal, and to partner with both the physical and subtle fields of earth and spirit. We will recognise and develop our skills of subtle perception, and build personal pathways of collaboration with the subtle fields of earth and spirit.

In this week we will develop the skills of engaged subtle activism. We will research our personal pathways to accessing and partnering with the different dimensions of life, both within and around us. We will learn to use our own subtle energy field - our own presence – in relationship with the subtle and spiritual forces of the planet to promote healing, emergence and transformation, fostering and restoring connections.

The week also includes a specially designed day-long version of the Transformation Game®.
