Three days ago, a small group of San Marcos people had the chance to come together at Minta’s place http://thesanctuaryguatemala.com/ and experience a way of communication and solution finding for intentional communities, developed over centuries by people from Tamara (Portugal / Europe) http://www.tamera.org/index.html and ZEGG in (Germany / Europe) http://www.zegg.de/es/.
The technique in it self is easy enough. Within a given structure, everybody in the group is free to express their needs, desires, pains and hopes to the collective. Everybody is equally free to reflect the expressed, in their form of choice (talking, singing, dancing…), back to the collective including the sender. All the other members of the circle are holding their awareness in a space of unconditional love, for the energies in movement.
The process is simple and therefor effective and profound. It provides for every individual of the group a platform to let go of old wounds, created in co-operation with other people in the circle. It gives space to share hopes for the future and allows take in the energies of honesty, purity, unconditional sharing and transformation, as provided by the interactions of the group.
Personally I enjoyed the gathering a lot! Also it speaks for the potential of the technique, that it took me three days to reflect about it in words.
The encounter left me open, vulnerable, in the middle of a lot of shifting energies – in the best kind of way.
I belief that, in order to be really effective for our community – it needs to be held at least every month, better every 2 weeks – until the collective pain body of the community is cleaned from its main contamination’s and all individuals are freed again to interact in a state of unconditional exchange and free energy flow.
At the very end of our time together, these questions came up:
What is community? What defines community, What makes us belong to a community? Is it by contract? By decision? By action? How do we relay? And when do we belong?
Incredible profound and beautiful questions that, (I believe) every individual has to answer first with the truth of their own heart and core values.
In this new world, that we are creating together, every version of life choice is allowed and has its space and people will meet in soul groups, as soon as they find their personal answer to such profound questions.
When we allow ourselves to ask the soul for its most truthful and deepest desire- how to live as a human on the planet. I am sure that a clarity and direction will emerge – giving us guidance to manifest the most beautiful communities of heaven on earth.
Thank you to the group, to Eric for sharing the technique, Melanie for holding the space and Minta for providing the space!
Sending blessings and gratitude and looking forward to see what flower will grow from this first seed planted!
