Exploration meeting - REVISED

Socio-Analytic Exploration Of Global Dynamics

Lead Explorers: Alastair Bain, Joshua Bain, Christopher Falkingham, Peter Hetrelezis

Exploration over 2 sessions:
Monday April 6
Monday May 4

7.00 – 9.00p.m.

64 Carlton Street, Carlton

Lead Explorers: Alastair Bain, Joshua Bain, Christopher Falkingham and Peter Hetrelezis

The transformation of human consciousness is no longer a luxury, so to speak, available to only a few isolated individuals, but a necessity if humankind is not to destroy itself. At the present time, the dysfunction of the old consciousness and the arising of the new are both accelerating. Paradoxically, things are getting worse and better at the same time, although the worse is more apparent because it makes so much ‘noise’. Eckhart Tolle – Stillness Speaks

These two sessions provide an opportunity for us to use our own experience, dreams, thoughts and feelings for a socio-analytic exploration of global dynamics. The exploration of global dynamics includes whatever we wish to include. It may be for example, the global economic crisis, global warming and climate change, population pressures, a multitude of wars, and on the other hand new hope engendered by the Obama Presidency, and the strengthening of spiritual consciousness in our lives and work.

The evening starts with an informal get together, 7 – 7.30pm, for milling around, and a glass of wine and cheese. The session proper begins at 7.30pm with two of the Lead Explorers introducing the global dynamics theme – about 20 minutes – followed by collegial exploration to 9pm.

Alastair Bain, Joshua Bain, Christopher Falkingham, and Peter Hetrelezis were instrumental in the founding of the Centre for Socio-Analysis, and are committed to developing the “socio-analytic idea”. See the People section for short descriptions of who they are.
