Something is dying — and something new will be born.

Can we “go sane” together — amidst so much craziness?

We are being invited to radical trust — to transmute our collective frozen emotions of grief, fear and outrage on behalf of the well-being of the human family.

Can we discover an absolute ground of the faith it takes to keep opening our hearts no matter what?

collective shock wave is rippling through our world, our reptilian and mammalian nervous systems, our friends, our families, our livelihoods, our communities and all our social systems.

It is stirring up forgotten forces at the very depths of our being.

In this special 60-minute teaching event, Terry Patten spoke about how we can come together to “go sane” in this world that seems well on its way to collective madness.

He shared insights that translate into practices you can do to activate life-affirming patterns in your life, and he shared innovative findings from vibrant communities and social experiments that are catalyzing new ways of being human.

Watching or listening to this recording will offer you a new relationship to our collective moment — and a path toward your empowerment.

During this free event, Terry clarified why our situation is not a calamity, but a natural processa Sacred Global Rite of Passage.

Questions Terry addressed include:

  • What is at stake for humanity — and for each of us — in this “sacred global rite of passage?”
  • Why is there so much hidden frozen emotion right now — grief, fear, and outrage — not just in those who seem angry, but affecting the whole human collective?
  • Which of our ways of being no longer serve us? How can we co-create new human patterns that will ripple across culture?
  • Does a new “republic of the heart” already tacitly exist, and how much power does it have to navigate the challenges to come?
