Gaianeering Summit 2019: Subtle Activism: Being First Responders of Spirit


Contributing to Wholeness in a Challenging World

Class Information

Friday, October 25 - Sunday October 27

We live in an intimately interconnected world. Like a pebble dropped into a pond, the ripples of our actions, both “positive” and “negative” impact and resonate through the whole system. Ripples also spread out from our acts of heart and mind that can contribute their energy to situations unfolding in our world today.

What are some first steps forward we can take as Subtle Activists? 

In addition to appropriate outer actions that we are called to take, how can we offer our first responses of attention, compassion and caring in ways that contribute to the health and wellbeing of our world? 

What do we need in order to focus our incarnational tool kit of spirit and energy to further wholeness in the world?

Incarnational Spirituality invites us into the power of our personhood, into our capacity to be a generative source of subtle energies that can enlarge the possibilities and creativity in our daily world. By deepening our integration and coherency as individuals through sovereignty and presence, we can engage with a world that, like us, is energy and spirit as well as physical matter.  In so doing, we enhance the network of partnering relationships that link all life.

Through this network of spirit and love, we can participate as first responders to support unfolding situations, whether far distant or nearby.  Our “subtle first responses” can have immediate and far reaching impact on the spiritual, mental, and emotional energies within any situation, which in turn can support actions in the physical world.

Class Description

The weekend is an opportunity for those interested in Incarnational Spirituality to come together to share perspectives, insights and experience, and grow our learning partnerships.

In six interactive webinar sessions followed by online discussion, we will explore the scope and best practices of Subtle Activism and the skills of being a First Responder of Spirit. 

  • *Planting the seeds of our presence so that they enrich wholeness in ourselves and our lives. 

  • *Tending the skills of partnership to become a blessing to ourselves, our families and our planet. 

  • *Offering a field of possibility for these turbulent times.

Over the weekend the Lorian Faculty, including David Spangler, Rue Hass, Julie Spangler, Tim Hass, Freya Secrest, James Tousignant and Jeremy Berg will explore subtle activism as a tool kit of practices you can use daily to become a “first responder of spirit”, someone who can be a generative source of creativity and wholeness to benefit the world. Sessions will include exercises and practices, discussion and sharing to weave idea into practice in practical ways that work for you.
