Collective Insights Meetup
DATE: Saturday 12th July 2014
LOCATION: GOPALS VEGETARIAN RESTAURANT
TIME: 12:00 pm meeting outside Gopals at 139 Swanston St
12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Meet for lunch and conversation. This is a great chance for members both new and old to catch up and mingle over a delicious vegetarian meal. (Food is also optional).
1:30 pm - 3:00 pm
The first Collective Insights process will begin at 1:30 pm sharp and latecomers will be unable to participate as the process is structured and not to be interrupted. If you are interested in attending this Meetup then please ensure you arrive in a timely manner. There will be a 30 minute break starting at 3:00 pm. Those not able to attend earlier can still join in the second process at 3:30 pm if they arrive between 3:00 pm - 3:30 pm.
3:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Short Break for refreshments, chat, stretch etc.
3:30 pm - 5:00 pm
The process will be repeated for a second time. Once again, this will start promptly at the arranged time. Latecomers will be unable to join in once the process has begun.
There is no fee charged for this meetup although the room has been secured by agreeing to a minimum $8.50 spend per person. If money is a challenge please do not let it keep you from attending. We are a generous group and some have been known to kick in a bit more or shout a meal for those experiencing temporary amnesia around the abundant flow of the universe! The food is delicious and we will likely easily spend more than the minimum. There is no obligation for those who choose not to buy food.
PURPOSE OF THE ACTIVITY:
The intent of this Meetup is to come together to draw upon the vast collective wisdom and experience of our group members and thereby assist each other to hone, focus and accelerate our evolutionary journey. We are able to share information, wisdom and experiences that members have acquired over lifetimes. Sharing our insights and experiences with each other quickens our growth. Most would agree that the key roles of a Starseed are to serve, heal and inspire and we are likely better able to achieve these aims as we refine our awareness, intentions and energy.
HOW THE PROCESS WORKS:
The group forms a circle and participates in a short guided meditation designed to promote group harmony and receptivity to assist in accessing our collective intelligence.
The active component of the circle begins with a member voicing their question or topic of interest to the group. All other members are free to take the opportunity to share relevant information and responses with the group for a maximum of five minutes each. This is to ensure all members have ample opportunity to share their insights and also ask their own questions later on.
All members are encouraged to equally participate in generating content and answering enquiries but are also welcome to ‘pass’ or remain silent if they so choose.
It is recommended that participants consider what they would most like to explore with the group prior to attending. Contemplating and preparing in advance will likely yield the most from the opportunities the circle will present.
Responses to the question/topic will be limited to around 30 minutes, depending on the level of information, interest and energy forthcoming from the group. When the interest wanes or the questioner is satisfied the group moves on to a fresh topic.
The intent of the circle is to expand knowledge and wisdom and is not an appropriate forum for personal therapeutic processing. Please be respectful of the function of the group and present questions that are able to be safely explored and integrated within a group setting.
The structured processes will conclude at 5:00pm and members are encouraged to connect individually with those whose information, energy and style they most resonated with. We generally find people want to keep enjoying each others company and group vibe and perhaps have coffee or dinner until we eventually drag ourselves away! Just go with the flow as it suits you.
As a member of Starseeds Australia your presence, input and participation is highly valued and vital to the future development of the group. The Collective Insights format is anticipated to become a regular event that will naturally evolve and transform to best meet the needs of those in attendance. Please accept our warm invitation to attend, contribute and be nourished by the fruits of our varied and rich experiences, shared freely with those who seek to learn.
We respectfully ask that if you RSVP and then decide not to come that you change your RSVP to 'not attending' through the website and leave a comment advising members of your decision. This helps with bookings and allows us to relax instead of being concerned when members who said they would attend do not arrive.
