The Re-Union of Body and Soul

Inspired by a post on TED talks, I wrote a response to a question asking, “What’s on your bucket list?”

Here’s the ONE thing that I would want to do:

I’d like to produce/direct an Edu-tainment Documentary series called “The Re-Union of Body and Soul” – about how newly emerging practices and perspectives related to fear, pain and core values are revealing at all scales the Highest Self (and the love) that we most deeply Are.

What would our world look like if fear didn’t so often impact our lives? What if prior pains didn’t continually disrupt possible solutions economically, socially, politically or globally? What if right-wrong and good-bad thinking (including shame, guilt and punishment) were replaced with presence, core values, integrated generative solutions, restorative justice and awareness of the personal value of others’ perspectives? How could our planet benefit? How could you benefit?

Our economy, families, politics, and businesses are no longer being sustained by power-over dynamics. Depression, divorce rates, cross-party political stalemates, disenfranchised students in our education system and dissent between Wall Street and Main Street abound. What will happen when the bottom of this last chapter in human evolution finally falls out? What is to become of our financial structures, our economies, and our communities? Are the doomsday stories of “Armageddon” really the end of the world, or just the end of the world as we have known it?

No matter what the outcome of 2012 and the next chapter of humanity, some folks are going to need a hand to move from survival-mind to thrive-mind (aka heart-mind). This technology is a part of that hand up. Additional structures, communities and technologies will arise from the center of gravity of those stepping into the new integration.

“Re-Union” is a story of both-and thinking. It’s a Love story; a story of embodied love. Where some spiritual practices advocate ascending out of the bodymind experience to realize our truest Nature and thus find equanimity, there’s an inherent division from the gifts (and integration) of the body and descendant practices. Conversely, while the body has historically focused on survival, there’s a kind of panic that separates us from the Source we most deeply are. The body craves transcendance; the soul craves Experiencing. What would come of uniting these two forces, cultivating strengths from both the ascendant and the descendant lifestyles?

In the series, viewers will experience an incremental 12-Episode List that brings awareness to (what Spiral Dynamics refers to as 2nd Tier) topics such as:

1. Core Values Awareness
2. Type Dynamics – They’re not crazy, they’re just not you.
3. Grief work / Release Work (Effective Self-Empathy)
4. Effective Expression and Do-able Requests
5. Integrative Decision-Making (ie: win-win, system-awake solutions in a multi-perspective’d world)
6. Recognizing and Integrating the Gifts Behind Shadow (fear, pain, shame, guilt, villainizing, criminal activity, etc)
7. Integrating The Core Behind Fear (and 5 specific proven practices)
8. Restorative Justice
9. Subtle and Transpersonal Field Dynamics
10. Both/And Thinking (relativism and post-relativism in a mostly conventional world)
11. Revealing Highest Self – the Face of God – at all Scales
12. Recap

Each episode, viewers would get to explore 3 components:

– The current episode Topic Overview
– Applications of the episode topic to practical situations at all scales – individual, interpersonal, organization and leadership, kids in schools, parenting, relationships, politics and legislation, healthy communities, economies, etc.
– Practical do-ables that viewers could take on TODAY toward this “reunion”

So what do you think?

What would it take to share this technology with the world, you ask?

It would take your help. We need funding, speakers, participants, staff to produce episodes, and champions to get the series shared and distributed.

What part of this conversation inspires you the most? Which parts are you the most familiar with? Where do you see this conversation benefitting you, your loved ones, your community or business, or the world from where you stand?

If this project interests you, email or call me! I’d love to hear your input and see this fly!
