The Evolution of Planetary Awakening

IEC Conference: 2023

Planetary views began seeding our developmental perspectives since the 1960’s and have continued to evolve. The screenplay of the post-modern integral version of the planetary awakening is being written right now, as we socially construct each other here, in this field. But what does “planetary awakening” mean in an integral world?

This talk will suggest a few practical markers we might look for in our Planetary Awakening-directly related to the evolution of humanity.

  • Developmental definitions: planetary, awakening, ignorance, confusion
  • Growing up our emotions
  • States and stages
  • Three practical practices that you can do every day to support planetary awakening.

Her interests lie in the living experiments of evolutionary human systems, levels of development from cradle to grave, and the interpenetration of human development and states.

Ordinariness continues to bring her home to the practical living, breathing appreciation of the simple things in life. We wake up every morning. We grow up quite naturally. We live through joys and sorrows. We grow old. Listening, gratitude, compassion, love, forgiveness, and generosity remain lifelong lessons that never seem to end.
