Architects for Humanity April 22nd


Incredible speakers, futurists, system scientists, and visionaries come together April 22nd 2017 to share their wisdom about the VERY specific part of the More Evolved Future they care MOST about as they map it out with clear steps they will give everyone as a guide to getting there.

The goal is for all of the Architects to get a sense of the FULL meta-blueprint, and what our role is in it, as well as getting clear on how we can more fully support our fellow Architects in manifesting the piece they are holding and nurturing.

We believe that as a leader, you hold a UNIQUE piece of the puzzle. We see you as an architect designing part of the blueprint for a more evolved, more loving, kinder Future World – the “more beautiful world our hearts know is possible.” This summit is an invitation to share and then synergize these blueprints into a comprehensive Meta-Blueprint.

Jennifer Russell presents the Metastructure of the Collective Story: Rewriting the Hero’s Journey

 

COLLECTIVE JOURNEY – from self to collective, and from collective to healing the planet

There is a battle for the american soul…one which is primarily driven by fear and one which is primarily driven by love.  The stories we tell / the metanarrative in the culture we are swimming in is the indicator of where we are on this journey.

The hero’s journey served as a tool for the adolescent human to learn his or her role in the community and how to mature through use of metaphors such as quests, gods, monsters and magic. The stories were most commonly circular

It requires a victim, a perpetrator, and a hero in an endless dance of disempowerment, blame, and conquest/conquering.  There are winners and there are losers.

Even if you see the hero’s journey as metaphorical where you the HERO are conquering your own inner demons / your shadow.  That narrative pits you at odds with yourself and takes your challenges and turns them into an enemy that we must hide, fade, or fix.

Rather than these very challenges are a love note from the universe which is destined to be the very pearl of your enlightment.   Far from holding these ‘challenges’ as your enemy, what’s required to transcend them is a complete and utter appreciation of the present state….where you come more from love than from fear.

 

Why alter a working formula? Why evolve it?

The paradigm of the hero-savior, endlessly repeated across all of our media, can actually disempower us

We need alternative narratives that show us empowered, diverse people taking on the biggest challenges and coming together to transform a situation, not just “save the day”.

We are all co-creators of the human story, each bringing a piece of it, together creating an immersive, interactive and non-linear narrative that stretches through the ages and into the future.

it cannot be a singular narrative, but a convergence of many voices of different genders, ethnicities, ages, and opinions

People are creating new technologies, new social structures, new ways of working that are different from the hierarchal structures of the past few hundred years.

It cannot be a singular narrative, with a single hero on an individual journey of self but a convergence of many voices of different genders, ethnicities, ages, and opinions where we are ALL the hero as it will take all 7 billion of us working together collectively to meet the magnitude and urgency of the challenges ahead of us.

Rather than holding inside ourselves that these ‘challenges’ are an enemy to be killed or vanquished, we have an opportunity to see them as the very pearl of your enlightenment – that which needs to be integrated to make you whole again so you are more driven by love than fear – including loving that which you currently hate.   Far from holding these ‘challenges’ as your enemy, what’s required to transcend them is a complete and utter appreciation of the present state.

People are creating new technologies, new social structures, new ways of working that are different from the hierarchal structures of the past few hundred years. So we are starting to see this new interconnected, regenerative collective story emerge…
