The Planetary Game – Engaging with the Emerging Future

Sat 11 April 2020 (7 Days)
With Joy Drake and Kathy Tyler, creators of the Angel® Cards and The Transformation Game®. Also with Mary Inglis, Judy McAllister & InnerLinks Faculty

The Planetary Game is a large-scale version of the Game of Transformation. Born at the Findhorn Foundation over forty years ago as a way of representing the community’s evolving approach to life, the Game is one of the most creative impulses to emerge from the Foundation. Today, players and trained facilitators engage with different versions of the Game of Transformation in over 40 countries around the world and the box version has been translated into nine different languages.

The Planetary Game involves up to 100 participants in five playing areas. It is focused around a life-size Game layout on the floor and has been described as a form of sacred theatre. The Planetary Game…

  • provides an exciting, multi-dimensional opportunity to work creatively together to bring insight, healing and direction to areas of both collective and personal concern
  • amplifies both personal and collective issues, engaging our hopes and dreams for a positive future, highlighting strengths and resources, and pointing to new directions
  • reflects current limiting patterns and their underlying causal dynamics, giving us the opportunity to reshape them
  • allows us to connect with and honour our individual paths and contribution within the larger whole, while also engaging with collective issues and challenges in today’s world

Each time the Planetary Game is played, a purpose is created to give focus to the process. Here is the purpose we will work with in this event.

We intend to
settle into the grace and strength of our essential identity,
step into whole-hearted engagement with the Soul of the World
and the Soul of Humanity,
and activate new patterns of relationship that serve the whole Earth community.

To start the Game, each participant chooses one of the Playing Areas, then formulates an intention that is personally meaningful, and selects a role to play: Player, Insight, Setback, Angel or Witness. Each Playing Area represents a key area of engagement. Collectively, we will deepen into each of them and learn from their interplay.

Play then commences and costumed participants representing the Playing Areas use a Game 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.

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.

Do come and join us for this special event 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.

Come and play for humanity and offer your presence, choices and actions as a blessing for the Earth.
