Jun 4, 2020

Can we “go sane” together, even amidst so much turmoil? Can this dark and disorienting process that billions of us are experiencing become a sacred, global right of passage that transforms us into new human beings? Who will we choose to be?

In this bonus episode, Terry Patten addresses the collective shock wave is rippling through our world, our reptilian and mammalian nervous systems, our friends, our families, our livelihoods, our communities and all our social systems. It is stirring up forgotten forces at the very depths of our being. He shares insights that translate into practices you can do to activate life-affirming patterns in your life, as well as innovative findings from vibrant communities and social experiments that are catalyzing new ways of being human.

Questions Terry addresses include:

  • What is at stake for humanity — and for each of us — in this “sacred global rite of passage?”
  • Why is there so much hidden frozen emotion right now — grief, fear, and outrage — not just in those who seem angry, but affecting the whole human collective?
  • Which of our ways of being no longer serve us? How can we co-create new human patterns that will ripple across culture?
  • Does a "new republic of the heart” already tacitly exist, and how much power does it have to navigate the challenges to come?
