Mutual Anointing

In the Mutual Awakening Practice, we heal one another each time we enter into a practice. By looking into one another’s eyes, and seeing clear through to the Origination Point - that space of pure "divine” energy that exists within each of us - we anoint one another with love.

As anyone who has suffered with significant trauma or struggles with demons knows (and dare I say that is all of us), ritual anointing of this type is cleansing, calming, and necessary for healing. We can do this practice with and for anyone who chooses. No one is excluded, except by their own choice to not participate.

Victim Advocate

As many of you know, I care deeply about advocacy. In fact, I founded a site called the Heart of Advocacy because I believe that advocacy contains the potential for deep healing for each of us as individuals, and for society as a whole. When we learn to connect core to core, from that place that Thomas Merton calls the “the point of nothingness which is untouched by sin and by illusion…” we spark the deepest point of potential hidden within.

Please listen in to Erica Heilman’s podcast, Rumble Strip, about Victim Advocates. You will be awakened and inspired by the women she interviews, and the valuable and too often invisible work they do.

Setting Humanity Ablaze

I recently read a blog titled “To Die On the Day of Resurrection” by Peter Haas.  It is worth a read.  In it he captures so much of what we are discovering, and what is being enacted through us and our lives, as we do the Mutual Awakening Practice within the Evolutionary Collective.   

The work of the Evolutionary Collective is deeply aligned with, and influenced by the writings of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, a Jesuit priest and paleontologist.  Evidently, as Haas points out, a year before Pierre Teilhard de Chardin died, he said “I should like to die on the day of Resurrection.” A year later, on April 10th, 1955 he died. It was Easter Sunday.
