All over the world, people are feeling overwhelmed. The daily news is arresting, disturbing and crazy-making; it seems like human civilization — and the Earth’s ecological systems — are coming unraveled. The emergencies and dramas suck us in and sometimes, in self-defense, we tune it all out.
The result is that we’re pushed toward numbness and fragmentation even as the world seems like it’s spinning out of control.
But there’s a way through this darkness to the hope “on the other side”. And YOU have a unique role to play in getting us there.
You’re invited to gather in virtual community for a free live video event with Terry Patten where he’ll share what he considers to be the most important message of his life:
What’s Really Happening in this Crazy World and
How You Can Be the Change You Want to See
Terry is dedicated to serving the future of life on Earth at a time when we can’t take anything for granted. His purpose is to catalyze an extraordinary new wave of human flourishing by convening integral conversations and leading communities of evolutionary practice.
During this 60 minute event, he will share the truth about what’s happening on Planet Earth and how it can actually call forth the very best of who we are—individually and as a species. He’ll introduce you to the cutting edge research and embodied awakened consciousness that are synthesized in his best-selling book A New Republic of the Heart: An Ethos for Revolutionaries which has been called “required reading for all humans over the age of 16”, and “THE manual for all who want to meet this moment as the historic call to action that it is.”
He’ll touch on all of the book’s major themes including:
- The nature of our “super wicked” problems and why we tend to stick our heads in the sand
- How ordinary folks like you and me are precisely the heroes that are called for in this challenging time
- Why it’s a moral imperative that we stay positively oriented and grounded in trust and gratitude
- How your deep inner work is crucial for catalyzing the Whole-System Change our world needs
- The power of “yin leadership”, the feminine dimensions of the maturity and courage it will take for us to meet our planetary crisis
- How the evolutionary pressures of our unprecedented times can strengthen your capacities and deepen your relationships
- What Terry means when he says “things are far too serious for us to lose our sense of humor”
If you feel the call to “be the change” and want to shape the future of our planetary life-support system, then register for the Aug. 1 event here.
Everyone who joins Terry’s video event will receive a pre-release audio file of him narrating Chapter 1 of A New Republic of the Heart.
Toward the end of the gathering, Terry will share an opportunity to participate in a 12-week guided study of A New Republic of the Heart: An Ethos for Revolutionaries.
