Intentional Society: Slice of life
Click here to register for our next orientation video call on Saturday, August 13th at 1:00-1:55pm Pacific Daylight Time (4pm Eastern, 8pm UTC).
This is a "slice of life" update, sharing what's happening inside the IS umbrella.
Last week we welcomed Seishin from Willow Monastic Academy for a session of open exploration from curiosity. Some of that went toward the life-of-practice of a modern monastic, our respective ecologies of practice, and other topics... and also multiple folks noted and appreciated being impacted by Seishin's quality of presence and/or energy. I'm glad to grow our group-to-group connection, aligned by similar aims and approaches, and so create another link in the meta-network.
This week we're coming back around to IFS (Internal Family Systems) to reconnect with its parts-of-self model, vocabulary, and connect to capital-S Self (which then seems linked to personal integrity-aura, personal field feeding relational field). I label it as an "oracle" type practice, because one tends to end up learning things that they didn't know they knew.
We're scheduling a Circling session as a mid-week member event soon. A Case Clinic event could be next. Or maybe we'll first get to try out a custom-designed IS version of gift circle practice. (Hmm, I notice lots of resonance in me to move with community energy, and some degree of my own catalyzing energy becoming a rate-limiter. Normalizing and broadening leadership, then, yes, as calling-energy should generally be guided by response energy. Share the awareness, help the system see itself...)
May you be free, may you be happy, may you abide in integrity.
