Many people say, "Things need to change."
But perhaps what needs to change first is change itself.
The way we typically try to create change involves a "goal-and-control" mindset. This approach is no longer working well in our highly complex world. In fact it may have become one of the major causes of the problems we face.
It has become impossible to predict the results of our actions or control their proliferating effects. Trying to force a goal-and-control approach propagates cascading cycles of unwanted impact. This is true whether we are talking about changing our diet or shaping the global economy.
We need a new approach that is better suited to our current problems.
At Resonance Path Institute, we are pioneering a new approach that can guide us in engaging the complex challenges we face today. Our approach is based on the principle of resonance.
The resonance principle holds that the rhythms and patterns of each element of a system reflect and influence the rhythms and patterns of everything around it. It tells us it is impossible to separate one part from another, and guides us to embrace this unity.
In resonance, we do not act upon reality, we act in a mutual dance with reality. We allow ourselves to be transformed as we participate in the larger dance, even as our transformation ripples back out and influences the world around us.
We call this approach The Resonance Path.
The effectiveness of The Resonance Path rests on three key innovations.
In Feelingwork, we have discovered that the actual, felt experience of being acts as a medium for resonance. By explicitly mapping this experience we bring it fully and tangibly into awareness. By inviting each feeling state to follow its inbuilt compass toward what feels true, we align the entire internal system, enhancing authenticity and amplifying resonance with the world. The result is a greater sense of aliveness and increased effectiveness in all we do.
In Fieldwork, we have developed a series of simple practices for small groups which enhance the resonance effect and support each participant to experience a broader, more cohesive group identity. In this more collective experience, we become open to further dimensions of our own selves and more freely able to participate in the group as a whole while at the same time maintaining our identity. Collaboration is made easier and more effective, collective insights emerge, and group creativity is greatly enhanced.
In Field Tuning, we are pushing the edge of what is known about consciousness, agency, and the greater whole of being. Using a very simple practice, we place our rational minds in service to deep intuition, and we open to a transpersonal wisdom which is normally outside of our awareness. As we develop a familiarity and comfort with this larger awareness, we find it guiding and supporting us in all our endeavors.
We're currently creating lessons for all three of these innovative methods. Enter your email address at the bottom of the page to be notified when we post them.
