Purpose as Evolutionary (and Involutionary) Driver

IEC Conference: 2023

Finding and living Purpose is an essential task as we face the global metacrises. We must hasten an evolved humanity who can grasp the crises, discern our role on the global response team, and become wise and resilient enough to create solutions.

Humans are evolutionary beings, always birthing another version when equipped to accomplish developmental tasks and resolve shadow, transcending and including. 

Purpose, the manifest experience of our Soul, inspires us along life’s trajectory, creating a thread to become more of who we are (creators of conscious expression, or evolution,) and less of who we are not (resolving unconscious shadow, or involution.)

We will establish the role of Purpose in driving the repetitive evolutionary-involutionary cycle for each stage-related developmental task and resolution of shadow. Given the path is difficult for most humans to tread, we will demonstrate how Purpose clarity and alignment is vital for each of us to grasp our place in this critical time.
