Thursday morning to Friday evening
At Findhorn we imagine finding creative ways to hear back from as many of our Emergence Groups as wish to share their experience, insights and collective wisdom gathering. You may wish to tune into this via webstream or continue with your own unfolding and/or reflective process.
At this point we will be entering the unknown – as until the emerging threads of the New Story are heard and felt by the collective present at the Summit, we will not know quite what the right (enough) way to weave them together will be. So in our first draft schedule, Thursday afternoon optimistically reads:
“N.B. Magic happens here!”
We imagine it will be about connecting the dots between themes and groups, sense making and trying to hear the warp and weft of any emerging meta-narrative that we feel appearing from our varied offerings. It certainly will be an opportunity to deeply listen and then see what we do and who we will be once the Summit completes.
So Summit Hubbers may be able to move ahead of us here – as few or none of you will have 340+ people to gather from!
When it feels right at Findhorn we will move towards Integration – creating choices for people to find their own way to synthesise the learning so far and find an appropriate way to commit to living more fully into their thread of the New Story in the future.
Some may wish to walk in nature or have a deep sharing with a buddy or small group, others will be offered the chance to go back into groups of shared interest (and create networks or projects for the future), or to join a collective storytelling workshop (to weave versions of the newly infused meta-narrative) or to co-create a ‘closing ceremony’/completion ritual for the whole group for Friday afternoon.
Those of you still with us will be encouraged to dream into your own integration time to suit the needs, wants and desires of your Hub.
We will complete with our final large group ‘gifting’ circle – to honour the gift economy principles that inspired the Summit and to invite everyone to note both what they have received and what they feel called to give, now and in the future, in order to accelerate the understanding and acceptance of the New Story, in all its facets. And to do this while we still have time to engage in a Great Turning – rather than a systemic Great Unravelling.
Again you will be welcome to web stream in for the final afternoon, or complete with your group in your own appropriate way.
We will be having a party on the Friday night and if you have been in parallel process thus far, we trust you will join us in a spirit of celebration into the late if not the wee hours!
