BARBARA MARX HUBBARD

In this interview, Barbara Marx Hubbard and Sheri Herndon launch powerfully into how resonance is the natural home of the new species awakening on planet earth and how this quality of resonance lies at the heart of the We-Space. In this intimate and transparent conversation, we explored all the nuances of what it means to be awakening as a new species, and how the yearning to be in deeper We-Spaces with each other is part of our divine blueprint. The field of love is palpable between Sheri and Barbara and becomes an inviting space to welcome all who are yearning to live in a higher-we field. We are in a field of truly mutual awakening where we can express more, give more, love more, create more. Barbara’s genius and embodied presence of this New Human awakening, is an inspiration for us to activate greater capacities emerging out of a We-Space with love as the foundation.

In this exquisite dialogue with 5 evolutionary women: Barbara Marx Hubbard, Uma Faith, Patricia Ellesberg, Stephanie Mark and Sheri Herndon move into a gorgeous field of stories of how the divine feminine shines in the We-Space. Over the next 75 minutes, we explore the themes of vocational arousal and how in a shared field of deep communion we turn each other on; how tantra is teaching us an embodied path of sensitivity to the field of higher consciousness and communion, body mind and spirit; and how the flow state, or being in ecstasy is often present when we enter together the We-Space. Through the lens of 5 women who begin together in potent presence, we explore the ways we activate each other into our greatness, and reveal more of our emerging capacities that come through when we share in the love story of the new species.

SHERRI LASSILA

From her long experience with We-Space practices both as a participant and a facilitator, Sherri Lassila shares with Anne Paré the importance of We-Space groups and specifically for women to come into their full power and leadership in the world. She reflects on her early experience with women friends at Stanford Business Graduate School that afforded her a glimpse of the experience of what takes place when everyone takes their social masks off and connects with one another in a deep and safe way. Sherri delves into the quality of vulnerability that she has seen in the women’s groups that allows the women to connect with their core of femininity in distinct ways. For Sherri, creating the conditions where women can become their full selves and thrive at their highest level in the We-Space has been where her passion has led her in her work. A notion dear to Sherri is that of entelechy – the natural highest potential of who we are, and the life force guiding us there – and how entelechy naturally unravels in a collective field. A We-Space thus becoming a garden that can sprout and hold this incredible potential. Sherri shares with us also some of the key principles and practices that We-Space groups can benefit from. She also shares on the importance of being seen, evolutionary partnerships – holding each other in our becoming, and co-mindfulness. She has a gift for us, on her website www.sherrilassila.com, a free guided practice called NEED Aligned Action quick-shift. A remarkable woman with a unique seeing, precision and warmth, in this conversation Sherri brings us both far and home at once.

AUTHENTIC WOMAN EXPERIENCE

EMILY SPILKIN

ROSY
MOON SCHLUSSEL

Dive into this wide-ranging conversation on women’s groups and the feminine aspect of the We-Space with three masterful facilitators, spiritual practitioners and long-time friends (Alexis Shepperd, Sweigh Emily Spilkin and Rosy Moon Schlussel). We explore the collective consciousness of “womanhood” and the unique issues women have faced throughout history–from gender-based violence to motherhood. Gathering as women and engaging in the We-Space connects us with this collective lived-experience and is an essential part of healing on individual and cultural levels. We also introduce the AWE holarchy, a phenomenological model developed by Alexis and Shana James to describe and work with the feminine dimension of experience—applicable to women at any level of development and to the feminine dimension inherent in all persons. Allowing the conversation to follow the emergent aliveness of the moment through our connection with each other, we explore many themes related to cultivating healthy expressions of the feminine, including embodiment and sensuality, deepening the capacity for relationality, the paradox of “safety,” the relationship between trust in self, others, and life, and the evolutionary impulse of love as a feminine spiritual practice.

MARCI DAVIS

Marci Davis shares with Anne Pare a fresh energy and a contagious aliveness unique to her about her experience of the We-Space as a woman, as a mother, and as a discerning and sensual being. Her personal and professional life have been steeped in the We-Space practice and embracing sensuality and shadow is a big part of this work. This bubbly wide-ranging conversation begins with reflections on her experiences “by association” with the integral world, being true to who she is, finding magic in the mundane in the We-Space with couples and family, and working with sensuality and the senses as a gateway into the We. In tackling taboos, pansexuality, healing competitiveness and the power of vulnerability in working with under-represented populations, Marci blows open the boundaries of her We-Space with Anne. As the conversation continues, her experience in these wide-ranging feminine contexts with young teenage girls and with women bring up reflections on the power of gathering as women for collective healing and empowerment, and the need for women to show up more fully in the process of waking-up of the world.

Six women come together on this call, each with their own history, expertise, desires and awareness. Immediately as we begin, a permeating quality of slowness and gratitude is very noticeable in this demonstration of a self-reflexive We-Space. As you watch you will have many opportunities to breathe with us as we feel out our answers to each other’s curiosities in this We-Space inquiry. The specific sense we have of an intentional all-women space is one of trust, richness, support, healing and connection. From this start, we speak about the changes over time to women’s roles in groups within their lives and as a society including archetypal fiercely nurturing mother-energy. We discuss the sense and nonsense of distinguishing between masculine and feminine qualities and We-Spaces, also touching on their shadows and possible integration. We speak of the ‘feminine’ desire for cohesion in groups that can turn into polite flatness; about lifting others as we climb, receiving strength from and giving it to each other – which can only happen if we share what is going on for us; women saying yes to bigger roles in organisations and communities; and giving, taking and relinquishing leadership in We-Spaces in the moment. Finally, we own up to some edges and shadows, as an example of the challenge, inspiration and healing that intentionally coming together can bring.

CYNTHIA BAMPTON

Cynthia Bampton shares with listeners how the We-Space is being lived at the Awakened Life Project. With her husband Peter Bampton, she has created a vitalizing cultural space that invites a way of living and manifesting together from our deeper innate potential, by being aware of both the non-dual truth and subtle movements of our ego that reinforce and cause separation and limitation. For Cynthia and her community, the We-Space is a powerful expression that holds and reflects the mystery of life itself and is accessible through our own intimate availability and capacity to be with it. Curiosity and interest are key, though as they share, it also takes a deeper commitment and willingness to not only have this experience but allow this deeper work to grow and guide us as a whole way of being. In intentional community, the daily-We in this sense doesn’t separate out spiritual experience from everyday life. In this conversation with host Anne Paré, Cynthia covers a broad array of subjects related to the We-Space.  She touches on gendered groups and how this serves the group, reflecting on how she and Peter are bringing together both the men’s and women’s groups in a rich continuous discovery. Just freshly out of a retreat that they led, in this call Cynthia is a powerful transmission and transmitter of the explosive and contagious joy that emerged from their intentional communities We-Space.

In this panel, Cynthia Bampton, Sandra Szostak, Raquel Perdigão and Laura Williams share more how they each became part of the Awakened Life Project and what life looks like in the day-to-day living through the process of surrendering and orienting from a greater field of awareness. Each of these women share with Anne Paré and listeners how life for them is really about resting into the We-Space and how each heart opening moment and each struggle is actually an integral part of the whole experience and actually serves the greater whole.  This panel is filled with a living wisdom as these guests explore a number of notions, including sacred sacrifice as the willingness to sacrifice illusions and disillusionment for the benefit of all. In this conversation, these women invoke and connect from the mystery of what inspires them to show up in their life together.  By following the deeper threads of their Yes, these women beautifully embody availability and presence as they navigate the deeper unknown regions inside their We.

In this heartfelt conversation among 4 evolutionary men, Eivind Figenschau Skjellum, Karl Otto Sandvik, Richard Arsic and Max Warren uncover the power of the Men’s work Reclaim Your Inner Throne (RYIT). For listeners who may not be familiar with this work, RYIT is a transformational new paradigm men’s work based in Scandinavia that are focused on helping men embrace the fullness of their human experience and Soul in a way that gives them the full permission to be who they are. During this call, the inquiry is anchored in the We-Space as they explore their initiatory journeys into this work that has helped them face their lives and interior world’s together as brothers. In their understanding and work in the We-Space as both a site of transmission and collective surrender, these men uncover what lies at the heart of their collective journey in the work. In this, the group field itself informs a dance of both authentic presence and honest challenge. Together they paint a powerful portrait of how a deeper surrendered leadership attunes to the collective field and meets men both collectively and individually in their respective challenges and victories. An authentic men’s call not to be missed!

WILLIAMS

Four men, Solomon Krueger, Mike Abravenel, David Jurasek and Owen Williams share a deep conversation around what it means to connect as men in the We-Space. This panel explores how relationships support men to discover their authentic self, while also challenge men to experience their edge amidst potential vulnerability. We-Spaces—in the form of personal relationships, men’s groups, and communities—contribute to personal and collective growth. Some of the confusions, tensions, and challenges men encounter can be discussed in supportive spaces with other men. This conversation highlights how essential it is for men to embody their gifts in relational and community spaces, providing and receiving mentorship and guidance. As men integrate, heal and grow together in We-Spaces, men can show up more authentically with clarity and commitment. This panel also addresses possible collective pitfalls related to men, such as: masking our identity, protective armoring, and emotional disconnection.

JEFF CHARNO

Jeff Charno opens into the conversation with Michael Stern by reflecting on his Being &Doing model, where his men’s groups open up to their depths of the Being dimension in a strong way to scaffold their growing intentions and how we wish to live and act from that place—the Doing dimension.The weaving of these two dimensions eventually brings about an overall embodied orientation and way of being and life. By working with the unconscious social agreements that drain the creativity and power from our relationships, Jeff brings us into contact with the depth and intimacy we truly crave in these groups through deeper inquiry and living from our depths in action. In this call, Jeff explores what becomes possible when we make these boundaries explicit in the We-Space, and choose to relate with each other in a way that supports our highest potential, individually and collectively. In the Being & Doing Men’s Practice Groups that Jeff facilitates, the We-Space is intentionally defined through the men’s agreement to practice an unusual degree of awakened authenticity and a radical kind of challenge and support of each other. Each time someone takes a chance to reveal themselves transparently, each time someone keeps their word by following through on their commitments, the We-Space deepens and strengthens. This powerful intersubjective field makes it easier for the next man to show up in a real way, to connect with what matters most to them, and to take meaningful action to integrate this depth into their daily life.

In this dialogue, Integral Living Room Hosts Terry Patten, Diane Hamilton and Jeff Salzman explore their work in the We-Space with Dustin Diperna. The conversation begins with each guest sharing their understanding, sense and application of We-Space practice and how this plays out in their work with the Integral Living Room—where a permission-giving spirit became their way of working with the We-Space among other Integral practitioners. In their reflections, they each reflect on the particular gifts, advances and valuable discoveries they have made together over the years in the We-Space. Called in a new way to not only tolerate, but appreciate and be influenced by others through the We-Space in this time of culture wars and difference.What then is our capacity to hold complex perspectives in our activism and galvanize our creativity in a way that keeps the dialogue moving forward with others who may not share our views, values or history necessarily? This leads to a deeper inquiry into the challenges of managing the psycho-social differences that challenge our ability to embody and work with othersto create coherence and a path forward. This highly engaging conversation ends with a powerfulsampling ofpractices that you can immediately employ to cultivate the We-Space with others in your life.

In this engaging conversation, Karl Steyaert, Tree Bressen, Jeff Clearwater and Ferananda Ibarra delve into conflict resolution and the healing of the We in Intentional Community. Questions central to their panel include: how does conflict affect the We? What awareness can we bring forth to support these processes? What processes and tools can we use to embrace or resolve conflict in a way that strengthens the We? In this session, these panelists explore the rich world of tension, conflict and empathy and the subtle art of working with conflict in ourselves and in groups in businesses, communities, prisons and governments. They acknowledge how addressing conflict can be a transformational experience both personally and collectively, discussing the options and tools available to address tensions at an early stage and what to do when conflict has already escalated. What options do we have to cultivate group awareness – are there preventative practices for addressing conflict? Can we cultivate trust, empathy, connection, authenticity, vulnerability on an on-going basis so that when conflict arises it can be the most transformational and supportive of the We? Together they inquiry into the “subtle energetic competencies” that each of us have the opportunity to cultivate in order to contribute to the development of the We. And when we fail to transform conflict, they explore how can we embrace that and use these opportunities to further invite our individual and collective growth.

PETER MERRY

Peter Merry begins his interview by speaking about the many ways energetics apply when engaging both individuals and groups in the We-Space, particularly when dealing with more complex organizational or global issues. In discovering that group coherence in We-Spaces influences random event generators, Peter shares with Miriam Van Groen research from Princeton University project (PEAR) to make a case for how human intention and how when a group coheres around a shared purpose, they also affect the otherwise random nature of events. In this conversation, Peter effortlessly weaves scientific and consciousness paradigms together, giving many examples of tried and true practices for working with the subtle fields and ways of positively impacting the chances for a desired outcome coming into ‘being’, meaning the 4% of reality that is manifest. Peter points out how our bodies can be developed into amazing instruments for feeling into and influencing this field, especially as hosts and leaders of We-Spaces. Finally, he speaks about the potential quantum leap of Immersive Virtual Reality and how a-synchronously provided (learning) content can be as impactful as real-time connection, creating more powerful online We-Spaces in the future.

In this conversation, seven 30-somethings from various European countries and the US speak about the We-Space from a generational perspective. We open up several Pandora’s Boxes, playfully and with curious respect. We cover a wide range of topics, focusing in on exploring national identity and historical awareness and shadow in We-Spaces. Posing questions such as: can I, as a German/Briton/American/Swede, say that I am proud of my country? Discovering how interwoven shame is with our daily existence, and that connection through intentional group settings is its antidote. We also zoom in on the unprecedented possibilities of this day and age, e.g. of lineages meeting and weaving together, the struggles and beauty of being ourselves and how groups and communities are a crucible for this work, what makes interactions on social media sites such as Facebook meaningful, and the masculine and feminine in We-Spaces, including the surprising use for “enlightened mansplaining”. We conclude that we all have our own reclaiming to do, and we can do this work in different We-Spaces: meeting and challenging each other in ways that ultimately serve. In light of that, our ability to stay with conflict, paradox, or whatever else comes up is where our growth edge lies.

MARTINEAU

In this call, we are joined by Stephan and Miriam Martineau as they share what brought them to their lifelong passion and interest in the We-Space.  The conversation begins with both Stephan and Miriam reflecting on the threads of their early fascination with the We. Here, Stephan returns to his initial experiences of world travel at 18 that opened into rich conversation and the beginning of a discovery of a greater mind or possibility that was accessible together. Miriam reflects on how this also began for her in her later teen years of visiting an intentional monastic community and making key shared discoveries with others. In retracing their paths and journey into the We, the conversation explores deeper themes of touching into the Unknown, a willingness to be guided among other central qualities of the We-Space. Through this inquiry, they each reflect on how the potential of a greater intelligence in their midst began to activate a deeper purpose and passion for this work. In reconnecting with their paths into the We, they explore a growing yearning and passion for showing up that is being asked for in engaging the We-Space at this time.  Weaving fresh insights and realizations into the inquiry at every turn, Steph, Miriam and Olen open into exploring the greater collective possibility that is based in something beyond each of us, yet includes each of us fully. In this hour-long inquiry, Steph and Miriam share the living wisdom gathered from their years of experience and research in the We. This is a conversation to be savoured and appreciated, not only for the insights shared but how also for a taste of what has been activated in the We through Stephan and Miriam’s deep calling to steward the We-Space through their lives, work and relationship.

TREVOR
MALKINSON

In this we-practice session on Collective Christianity, the Reverend Trevor Malkinson (United Church of Canada) and Stephan and Miriam Martineau (founders of Next Step Integral) begin with an inquiry into germane themes that lie at the intersection of Christianity and the We-Space. Miriam begins by powerfully inviting everyone into the call with the deeper injunctions of their We-Space practice and tradition that has been practiced virtually now among them and other friends for the past two years. Stephen and Trevor begin with reflections on Christ in the larger context of the evolutionary journey of humanity on the planet. This folds into the reflection that Christ was holding two key messages: embodying a new way of being as a human but also what lies beyond individual evolution to the deeper possibilities of the collective. They then explore how Christ’s life is a fulfillment not only of this first dimension but his entire life was more about what does it mean to come together for a larger purpose? As a collective inquiry, they look more deeply into what resources might Christianity have that can assist We-Practice work, and in turn, what can We-Space practice offer the Christian search for communion and becoming ‘the body of Christ’? Over the hour, they explore the vital intersection between these two rich regions of inquiry: Christianity and the We-Space, a subject that has yet to be take up or explored in depth.

 

JEAN-FRANÇOIS NOUBEL

Jean-François Noubel (JF) joins Ferananda Ibarra for a conversation on how hacking the “We” within the “I” can assist practitioners in doing deeper We-Space work on themselves.  Beginning with a re-frame of the “We” within the “I”, he reminds us how the larger whole of culture embraces the part or the collective lives in and through each of us. He begins this interview with a clear invitation to uncover this whole “We” within each of our “I’s” and to rewire ourselves by telling us to “Go hack yourself!” By hacking this dimension of culture inside us, JF takes us into a journey of exploring the invisible architecture of language, thinking structures, beliefs and all that is given to us via our culture. If we notice, this opens a pathway to hacking the We inside us emerges in a practical way. Jf shares his view of being an open-source human being who is interested in hacking these social codes to gain greater insight, awareness and discovery. He goes more into depth of his use of language and how this has a long evolutionary history that has layers of representing our reality through reality.  For JF, he shares his breakthroughs into E-prime language (“E” for English and “prime” as a derivative of English) where he calls into question for instance, our unskillful use the verb ‘to be’. In his reflection on this language experiment, JF points out how hacking our language in this manner (as one example) helps us shift into becoming aperspectival, freeing us from different ontological jails that we inhabit through this otherwise unconscious use of language. JF poses the question: Have you had an experience of consciousness that you fail to express with language? JF and Ferananda explore beyond the traditional object-centric versus flow-centric use of language and how the latter route opens us into a deeper connections on many different contexts of our lives as well as the shared culture of the We-Space.​​
