A Quiet Revolution Into Human Wholeness

Bill Plotkin Wheel - Jaime - Textures_v2.jpg

Our workshops, residential retreats and online courses are about the Great Turning as described by Joanna Macy, guided and inspired by the map of human wholeness developed by Bill Plotkin & Animas Valley.

 

The Great Turning is a call to support the beauty of life (human and more than human) for the generations to come. It is a turning away from the ideologies and practices currently valued by a patho-adolescent culture that assumes humans at the centre who must conform and consume, without attention to consequences, in order to make progress.

 

Like a rite of passage into human wholeness, it requires preparation work and courage to peel back the layers of conditioning to uncover something incredibly precious and needed at this time in earth evolution…True Adults !

At the heart of all the education offered we believe that what our communities need most is "True Adults." True adults are demonstrations of moral intelligence, matched with courage, they tend to see and behave according to generational time and have an unshakable understanding that they are a part of the web of life.

The journeys we offer are about re-storying, re wilding, re wiring ourselves so we may speak and act from our true voice, know who we are, know clearly the kind of world we want to live in, and equally know what we do not agree with or support.

 

The Centre for the Great Turning is a part of a global community that is committed to the shift away from an industrial growth society into a life-sustaining society. This Blessed Unrest is what P Hawken calls ‘the largest social movement in history.’

 

We achieve this process through self knowledge, wilderness encounters, meditation, rites of passage and the wisdom and wonder of intergenerational communities daring to engage in brave conversations, sharing skills, feelings and knowledge about new structures and systems for species well being

 

We have developed over decades experiential nature education and empowerment for children, adolescents, young adults and adult moving on the path of eldership.

Great Turning
Concert

3rd September 7.30pm

Jaime will share a handful of original songs about a transition, a story told with soul poems of the mytho- poets such as David Whyte, Mary Oliver and more. It will map a pathless journey of the personal/collective unravelling and the possibilities that exist to marry ego and soul in service to the Great Turning.

A Fruitful Spring Time of Community

A core group of seven people, a community of immeasurable friends in support.

Here is some of the outcomes of the 3 month retreat that happened in the Refúgio Paradiso in Brazil. 

BRAZIL 2019

Refuge

In all the stages of this offering; preparing the ground, planting seeds, chthonic emergence, growth and harvesting…

 

We take refuge in the true state of affairs; spontaneously ever-present, timeless awareness, radical inclusivity, unfolding in all it's fullness, the vast ungraspable suchness that is this living world/universe.

 

We recognize, celebrate and cultivate the paths, teachings and encouragements that support our realizing the true state of affairs. Bringing forth generosity, wholesome relating, patience, skilled use of energy, a continuity of caring and enquiry, and wise understanding.

Releasing into a profound sense of being this continuously gestating mystery of communion – this is our home.

Smiling; Breathing; Present; Appreciating; Offering, this school will deepen this confident knowing/experience of refuge
