Decolonisation and peacemaking with Harley Eagle.

It was wonderful to have Harley Eagle visit us in Perth in late January. His talks on decolonisation, cultural integrity, healing of intergenerational trauma, restorative justice and peacemaking were informative and deeply moving.

Harley’s talks created a bridge between the past and the present, and between Aboriginal and non-aboriginal people. His information brought a greater understanding of the colonist mindset and why racism exists in our world. Each one of us was invited into a deeply personal exploration of decolonisation as well as a collective healing journey. A list of additional resources and some highlights are provided below.

Nicely summarised, Kelly! After Harley’s talk, I found an interesting program talking about Oxytocin and felt it had real relevance to the points he made around parenting (that is not overly controlling and protective) and the skill of comforting children to help them to develop coping skills. The use of alcohol/drugs may be sought for comfort that was missing in childhood due to being taken away from parents, or the stolen generation not learning the skills at their parent’s knees.

Crazy Hippy Bus

We have come to refer to our journey with The Nature Code in this way as we never know where it is going or what will happen next.

Working with self-organising and transformational process in TNC project has challenged us to continually release mechanistic thinking, structures and the need to be in control. Each time we do this TNC shifts and morphs with changes in thinking and direction. At times it has seemed to disappear down a rabbit hole only to resurface somewhere else looking completely different. Not just new clothes but fundamentally different. It certainly has been an interesting adventure and the ‘Crazy Hippy Bus’ is in great shape and not so crazy after all.

Our aim has been to go with the flow of the project and allow it to inform us where it wants to go rather Read more…

The Karri Tree

Burnt out and ejected from the business world I landed in the the tall timber country of the South West of Western Australia. There I purchased a badly treated and rundown dairy farm with the idea of building a house by hand and establishing organic gardens as part of my recovery. However the exhaustion was such I could not find the psychological or spiritual strength to put my plans into action. This was the 1980’s, I was in my early 30’s and it was way too early in my life to be feeling so ruined. It was with a wry irony and sadness I realised the farm and I mirrored each other.

Fortunately I felt called to a forest adjacent to the property and began walking within it regularly. Read more…

NOW IMAGINE FOR A MOMENT THAT THIS IS A SPIRITUAL MOMENT. LIFE, THE UNIVERSE AND CONNECTEDNESS OF MOMENTS LIKE THIS CAN ONLY BE FOUND DEEP WITHIN. MANY WHO FIND IT ARE OVER-WHELMED. MANY WHO WALK THE SAME PATH ONLY SEE TREES AND FEEL CUT OFF FROM ALL THEY HAVE EVER KNOWN………. NOW STEP OUTSIDE OF YOUR SELF AND IMAGINE YOU ARE AN ABORIGINAL WITH VERY LITTLE AND THIS IS YOUR GARDEN OF EDEN. EACH BREATH IS ONE WITH YOUR RELIGION, PAST, PRESENT AND KITCHEN. YOUR WHOLE LIFE IS HERE. THEN ALONG COMES THOSE OF A DIFFERENT RACE WHO BELIEVE IN A MATERIAL WORLD. YOU ARE DRAWN INTO IT AND CAUGHT UP IN A TOTALLY DIFFERENT SPHERE OF BEING AND EXISTENCE. ONE WHERE YOU DO NOT LISTEN TO THE FORREST SONG. ONE WHERE YOU ARE HUNTED AND REJECTED AND STRANGE CUSTOMS AND DISEASES AND IDEAS ASSAIL YOUR VERY BEING. CAUGHT UP IN THE WHIRLPOOL OF NEITHER HERE NOW , OR THERE WHERE IT WAS BEFORE. GRADUALLY THE POISONING OF ONE LEADS TO THE FORGETTING OF THE OTHER. UNTIL A POINT IS REACHED WHEN YOU CAN NOT MOVE FOREWARD OR BACK AND ARE HOOKED ON THE NEW DRUGS OF BACCY, SUGAR, TEA, HAVING TO COVER AND CLOTHE YOUR BODY. ACCEPTANCE OF WHO YOU ARE IS NO LONGER. .. LOST…… LOST……. YOUR CHILDREN ARE BORN TO THIS LOSS…. ALCOHOL… LAND TAKEN… SLAVERY…. NO WHERE TO HIDE….. IT IS FOREVER GONE…… ONE IS A WHITE MAN IN THE NOW WORLD THAT HAS ALWAYS BEEN, TOUCHED BY THE NATURAL SPIRIT SO LONG FORGOTTEN BY HIS TRIBE THAT IT BECOMES A NEW WORLD THING THAT MANY TAKE DRUGS TO FIND. MANY DO BUT AT A COST TOO DRAMATIC TO BACK AWAY FROM….. THEY ARE LOST…. LOST …… THE OTHER PERSON IS AN ABORIGINAL THAT CAN NOT LIVE IN THE WHITE WORLD AND IS CAUGHT UP IN THE DRUGS, ALCOHOL, SWEETNESS OF SUGAR AND FIZZY DRINKS, KFC, REJECTED, DEJECTED, KIDS BORN WITH ADDICTIONS, REJECTIONS AND MENTAL HEALTH PROBLEMS.. THEY KNOW NOTHING OF THIS SECRET WORLD OF THE FORREST. IT IS NEVER TOUCHED ANY MORE BY THE TRIBES.. THEY ARE ALL LOST…. LOST…

New Mexico and New Consciousness

 

I have always found sitting in circle to be powerful and a rich source of learning. Once the group process is in place it empowers individual processing and participants can reach further and wider for understanding via the collective group dynamic and consciousness.

There has been a lot of work in the US with circle in all sorts of settings, and there are some very good and experienced process trainers there. There are also those who are utilizing it to contribute to change and transformation in their own way. One of these, a respected friend and associate on the leading edge of transformational training in the US, is holding an immersive toward the end of March. The purpose is to bring together those who are active in change and understand process to explore new consciousness.This refers to an emerging understanding of a way forward beyond conventional awareness and thinking. Many people are aware of this consciousness and once accessed a great deal of information and wisdom is available to guide us toward a better future.Read more…

The Problem with Leadership

Control Over

The problem with hierarchical “control over” leadership is that it perpetuates crisis. It has its place when there actually is a crisis and fast sound decision making is needed with a recognized chain of command that involves confidentiality, but beyond that it is exploitative. For example, we have seen strong leaders emerge during times of war. When these ‘control over’ structures that are effective in war however, are maintained beyond the crisis they attract people who are interested in positions of power for influence over others and fulfillment of personal greed based agenda.

Creative Mother Earth

Creative Mother Earth

Self-organising and transformational processes are at the heart of evolution and of earth coming into existence as a creative living system with consciousness. Mother Earth has since brought an incredible diversity of life forms into being of which we are one. Humans have mobility and dexterity, an ability to manipulate their environment, and a creative capacity beyond that of any other life form on planet earth.

Beyond Industrialised Mind

To move beyond an ‘industrialised mind’, we need to look outside of the thinking that has created the problems. As the dominant worldview, the industrialised mindset has resulted in the destabilisation of systems and a rush toward the cliff edge of sustainability.

The new sciences that explore systems have revealed a more expansive and inclusive world view that offers solution and transformational outcomes. In this blog I provide an introduction to systems, the related concepts, and what this offers for a better future. I also highlight the incredible importance of indigenous and ancient wisdom for sustainability and transformation.

Thank you Heather, glad you like it. I really enjoyed making this video and will be doing more like it. I was out in the bush again on the weekend, at another special place I go to, and took a whole heap more video to use for sharing of experience in this way. Spent a lot of time connecting and enjoying the energy of Mother Earth. It is wildflower season here and it is a great time to enjoy the expression of beauty as well.

Unite Conscious and Unconscious Mind

We have a conscious mind and an unconscious mind. Amazingly, it is the unconscious mind where most of our information processing happens – 500million bits/second verses 500bits/second of the conscious mind! However, in todays world, the conscious mind has been conditioned and information exchange between the conscious and unconscious mind is often constrained. The good news is we can release these constraints and unite our conscious and unconscious minds for greater access to emotional healing, wisdom and intuition.

Creation Story

Stories are powerful. We all have personal creation stories within that determine our reality and experience in the world. These stories come from our history and often run unconsciously throughout our lives. If we don’t realise this, we will keep creating the same experiences in our lives over and over again. By being aware of the creation stories within us, we can interrupt the old stories and create new ones using the power of our imagination. Change your story, change your reality.
