SUBTLE ACTIVISM PRACTICE GROUP
“Our current calling is to develop transformative communities of practice, and our necessary path lies in our ability to marry our individual growth with our collective liberation.”
— David Nichol, author of Subtle Activism
The Satisfaction of a Meaningful Life
No matter how well-intentioned, unawakened activism has its limits. We are being called to a new way of relating to one another and our life-giving planet based on fundamental non-separation. Humanity is beginning to awaken to this dimension of itself; it is our birthright.
Mature, awakened activism sources its actions in essential inter-being, allowing us to cultivate courage, trust, compassion, and responsibility in ways never before possible. Satisfaction comes from engaging ourselves fully in something that matters. Join us and make your difference... the time is now.
A Transformative Path of Service
Awakened activism is a transformative path of conscious, connected, and embodied service that will help you:
- Find clarity about what you are here to ‘be’ and ‘do’
- Participate effectively with Life rather than staying lost in overwhelm
- Enjoy companionship and support with like-hearted colleagues
- Rest in deep, radical trust as you turn heartbreak into loving service
- Contribute to our collective evolution your way
- Move beyond gridlock and polarization into the rich field of co-creative emergence
A Shift in Our Sense of Self
As long as we only know ourselves as a separate entity, we will unconsciously resist a fundamental tension at the core of our being.
No matter how outwardly peaceful and compassionate, a small, separate self will always have an underlying drive to fix, manipulate, or control things - ourselves or the environment - in order to feel okay.
This unconscious drive ripples out into the world in unsustainable ways - it can even be seen as the root of most human injustices and the destruction of our biosphere.
Awakening can be described as a shift in identity. When our primary identity as a small, separate self broadens to include the vast, embodied, and conscious field of fundamental non-separateness, we naturally find our hearts opening profoundly to the world and our actions based increasingly in compassion.
The awakening process liberates us to dance in the Totality of who and what we are - a seemingly separate being that is simultaneously All That Is.
Activism can be defined as acting on behalf of something beyond our own self-interest.
When we awaken to the fundamental Unity of Reality in an embodied way, we realize that whatever we do to another, we do to ourselves.
We also realize the old, dissociated ways of trying to "make things happen" are no longer sustainable, and a desire to act on behalf of the greater good can arise naturally within our trusting hearts.
Awakened Activism is action on behalf of the wellness of all beings which is sourced in the love and trust arising from an embodied realization of union with all of life. Awakened Activism becomes most fully expressed as spiritual, social, and environmental awakening mature in an individual.
One of the most profound gifts of conscious, embodied awakening is a radical and unshakable trust in life which brings peace to the innermost core of ourselves.
Trust allows us to respond to life with patience, curiosity, and courage instead of an unsustainable orientation of manipulation and control. In this way, awakened activism lets us dance with life in a meaningful, engaged, relaxed-yet-passionate expression of our unique brilliance in service.
