Subtle Activism: Mutual Awakening Practice: How Your Higher Relatedness Can Evoke Global Shifts

With Patricia Albere: Founder of Evolutionary Collective

Hosted by David Thomas Nicol

Patricia Albere of the Evolutionary Collective will describe how the Mutual Awakening Practice uniquely creates Unity consciousness that activates the evolutionary force of love, your unique potential and a dynamic creativity. She will describe how the inter-related awakening of MAP elicits an awareness of not only your unique potential or essence, but also that of an “inter-being” between us. This profound potentiation of commonly-focused souls, generated through the Evolutionary Collective, creates the possibility for more “real world” shifts in consciousness, culture, and human evolution.

Shamanism and Subtle Activism

With Sandra Ingerman: Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Author, Teacher

Hosted by David Thomas Nicol

There is important action we have to take to create positive change on the planet. How can shamanic practices be applied in a modern context to help bring our world into balance? Can shamanic practices be used to support positive change not only in individuals but also in cities and nations--or even the whole planet? And how might shamanic practices help us to work for change in our world from a place of inner harmony and strength, rather than despair and overwhelm? In this one hour presentation, Sandra Ingerman will share with us her experience of applying shamanic practices to collective healing and how the approach of shamanism can empower the work we do on behalf of the planet and all of life.

Subtle Activism: Supernormal – On Yoga, the Siddhis (Extraordinary Powers), and Science

With Dean Radin: Chief Scientist at IONS (Institute of Noetic Sciences), Author, Speaker

Hosted by David Thomas Nicol

"Supernormal" asks a simple question: Was Buddha just a nice guy? Did Buddha’s teachings thrive because he was more attractive or charismatic than the average guy, or because of his legendary supernormal abilities? What does science have to offer in addressing these questions, and what do the answers tell us about our own potentials?

Hosted by David Thomas Nicol


Subtle Activism: The More Beautiful World our Hearts Know is Possible

With Charles Eisenstein: Author, Speaker

Hosted by David Thomas Nicol

Many activists sooner or later come to face frustration, cynicism, or despair. Far from being obstacles to overcome, these feelings are invitations into a deeper level of activism that includes the personal and relational. On their other side lies optimism, confidence, and vastly greater effectiveness as agents of change, as we come to realize that our dashed hopes and betrayed idealism were showing us a real possibility.


Subtle Activism: Transformative Change from the Inside Out

With Angel Kyodo Williams: Founder of Transformative Change, Spiritual Teacher, Author, Activist and Trainer

Hosted by David Thomas Nicol


During this session angel will discuss a practical understanding of how inner work translates to transforming society, the common misunderstandings such as "the other", how to know if you're bypassing and what the radical path to transformation requires.


Great stuff on racism and privilege issues and their intersection with spirituality.


Love meaning expressing the universal vibration, in a felt way, or connecting… Of our fundamental connection to each other…


Justice, is how that fundamental connection to each other is put forth in the structures of society in which we live, the structures in which we inhabit.
