“[I believe] that the group is the art form of the future. In our present culture, the main need is for a form that can enable human beings to share their perceptions and through that sharing, to become a conduit for the appearance of spiritual intelligence.”
I’ve always been fascinated by the deeper intelligence that shows up in a group space and I wrote about that in my book, Getting Messy: A Guide to Taking Risks and Opening the Imagination for Teachers, Trainers, Coaches, and Mentors.
I’ve experienced the magic that can happen when groups come together in an intentional way. As Needleman writes, groups are a form and conduit for the sacred.
Some of the questions I’m still wrestling with…
How can the wisdom that emerges through a group process serve the collective?
How can it serve social change?
What larger, potent possibilities can happen in a group?
What processes and structures are necessary for groups to enter sacred space?
