State of Emergence is a new podcast about how we respond to the urgency of our world crises & catalyze human transformation. Hosted by @TerryPatten.

Feb 6, 2021

Terry Patten explores the delusion, anxiety, loneliness, and fear experienced across our culture as well as the potential for sacred, next-stage friendship to be a key leverage point for healing the madness. Terry also invites members of the New Republic of the Heart practice community to share their experiences participating in a daring social experiment in transformational relating and co-creativity. Ultimately, Terry and others extend a special invitation to listeners.

Here are some of the questions he explores:

  • How can we best understand the wildly challenging collective madness that is gripping so many people around the world? 
  • How do we “go sane” amidst the madness? 
  • How can we find deep “spiritual friends” — people who are humble and open, and who can meet us at the heart amidst whatever craziness arises?
  • Which experimental practices and ways of relating can catalyze the wisdom, coherence and heart allies that our predicament requires?
  • How can we keep growing our capacities to reassert our relationships and heal our cultural divisions — even to the point of healing people falling into collective delusions?

It's one thing to talk about these things — and it's an entirely different thing to actually live them. For that we need friends. We each need a tribe of like-minded and like-hearted souls — our spiritual friends amidst this cultural madness. If you are a practitioner, if you have gifts to share, and/or if you want to join hands with other serious practitioners, this session is the event where we are extending you a wholehearted invitation. We are a co-creative practice community of practitioners and change agents from 20+ countries, and we welcome you. — Learn More and Join Our Social Experiment
