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 game…
Each time the game is played, a “purpose” is determined to give focus to the game.
This event’s purpose is stated as such:
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 reaches beyond the personal level. Its effectiveness depends on the players’ capacity to recognise the self in one another, to see the world within the self and the self within the world, and to respond accordingly. It requires players to take responsibility for being co-creative participants in the wellbeing of a wholeness larger than the self.
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.
We invite you to offer your presence, choices and actions as a blessing for the Earth.
Following their game experience, previous participants offered their insights:
I felt privileged playing the Planetary Game. It reawakened my sense of wonder at the Earth, and the beauty of all those around me. I have retained a deep sense of peace and joy.
The Planetary Game gently peeled away my layers of pretense and illusion, and revealed the essential truth of who I am and all I can accomplish. I feel tremendously grateful and excited about the future and the new patterns of living that have opened up for me.
The entire game was an expression of my soul’s journey. Conscious creation from an intentional choice.
