What is at work when a seemingly random group of people come together and begin to experience synchronicities and magical moments? And what does it imply when it happens over and over again, across groups and across time?
Join award-winning teacher, international speaker, and author Christopher M. Bache, PhD. as he tells the story behind his book, The Living Classroom, and shares how to apply what he learned to all kinds of group settings — in the classroom and beyond.
As he describes it, “Fields of consciousness and energetic resonance manifest everywhere around us, but they emerge with special power in group settings. For years, I watched these phenomena surface in my classroom. It touched my students in sometimes dramatic ways and triggered unexpected episodes of healing, insight, and creativity. I studied their dynamics and eventually fashioned a new approach to teaching – emphasizing the ecology of consciousness and the collective dynamics of group Minds.
What I learned as a teacher applies to all intentional groups. The issue is not education, but the nature of consciousness itself and the innate tendency of our hearts and minds to synchronize and form alliances with those around us. When collective fields are activated, our baseline consciousness is deepened and our individual capacities are augmented. But, if we are to engage these fields wisely calls for skillful means.”
We hope you’ll join us for this engaging webinar.
