“In this post-modern world the hunger to belong has rarely been more intense, more urgent. With many of the ancient, traditional shelters now in ruins, it is as if society has lost the art of fostering community.” – John O’Donohue,Irish poet, author, priest, and Hegelian philosopher.
Communities come and go. What is the secret to sustaining them for 400 years and beyond? What are the aspects and components of a community that fosters human renewal, supports the best in the human spirit, and increases resilience to future challenges? How does a conscious and awakening community offer a model of transformation and healing for ourselves, our societies and our organizations?
Clear Sky is a “living lab” and training center for conscious awakening community. Home to founding teachers Qapel and Catherine Sensei, and students, it is a supportive space for meditation, study, service and liberating the shadow. We co-create cutting edge approaches to spiritual practise community, money and the environment. Our lineage can be traced back to the Buddha, from teacher to student, and with strong roots in both Vajrayana Buddhism and Western spiritual traditions. Drawing on this legacy we are evolving new universalist forms of depth teachings that are fit to meet the global challenges we all face.
COVID-19 has highlighted for us how resilient our approach is proving to be. We are practising sustainability across dimensions: spiritual, financial, environmental and social. It’s working in beautiful and exciting ways. Let us share our secret sauces, so that it might create fresh inspirations, thoughts, mindforms and attitudes that you can adapt to your life and work.
In this talk, members of Clear Sky share real visceral stories and learnings on questions including:
What is conscious awakening community and why does it matter?
What practices can sustain us in challenging times?
How can the path of service and generosity help us both as a profound learning, and as a generative model for working together?
How do training and mentors fit with depth transformation?
What are some skillful ways to integrate the shadow around money, sex and power? Why is this important?
