12/23/2018
More
Why do we have the Feast of Christmas? Dr. Patrick considers the history of how we approach Christmas and the birth of the Christ.

Going Beyond Our Story

12/2/2018
More
Transnarrative cognition is understanding and going beyond our story. Dr. Patrick looks at "Green", the final meme in the first tier of Spiral Dynamics, which represents community. Remember that your perception of the world is a reflection of your state of consciousness. You are not separate from it, and there is no objective world out there. Every moment, your consciousness creates the world that you inhabit. -- Eckhart Tolle

Awakening to Ourselves

11/25/2018
More
This week, Dr. Patrick looks at "Blue" and "Orange", the fourth and fifth memes in the Spiral Dynamics. Blue represents the rule of law. The establishment of order. The quest for ultimate peace. Orange represents the achiever-self. Playing the game to win. The quest for material pleasure. He then gives us three spiritual practices to help us awaken through the challenges presented by the above memes.

Making Friends with Conflict

10/28/2018
More
Conflict happens in every area of life. Using Dr. Gary Simmons' book The I of the Storm, we can learn what is conflict, why embrace it, and how can we stand in the eye of the storm. We need to understand that change and movement are the heartbeat of the universe... the field of creation. Change is never ending and follows universal, predictable rules. All events have their origin in opposite, complementary forces, like yin and yang. This is our curriculum. This is how we evolve. Conflict...

The Life of Diamonds

10/21/2018
More
The Centre is undergoing a transformation from a minister-centric community to a ministry-centric community. This is guided by the Genogram activity and our community's Shadow Card and Q Card. The Shadow Card is when we are acting outside of our integrity. The Q Card is the diamond that we are being called and shaped into. Visionary Tama Kieves says it this way, "I hate transitions. But I am black coal, and this compression is turning me into a diamond. And as much as I want to conform and...

Our Story, Our Genogram, Our Q Card

10/14/2018
More
Dr. Patrick presents the community's Q Card. The reverse side of the card speaks of the shadow qualities of our community, while the front side of the card speaks to our destiny as a vibrant, impactful ministry-centric spiritual community. Dr. Patrick's talk is followed by a meditative musical experience presented by Dennis Goodwill, using singing bowls, gongs, and other instruments which were not captured well by the recording, and hence not included in the podcast.

Gratitude and Thanksgiving

10/7/2018
More
No one is against us, even our own lives. Our lives become predictable because attention and awareness continually re-frame the present moment to the context of past influences. These are our patterns. Consciousness is poured into the creative framework of attention and awareness to set in motion the forces that organize the manifest universe. If consciousness is in bondage to the past, or if attention is mesmerized according to ingrained patterns of awareness, the future is simply an...

How to Not Be Triggered When We're Judged

9/30/2018
More
As we begin to do church around the purpose of transforming lives instead of doing church around the purpose of feeling better about ourselves, we in the community begin to feel a greater sense of empowerment, partnership, and ownership. This week, the Centre's transformation coach, Dr. Gary Simmons, visits to teach us how to not be triggered when we're judged. Knowing how is not enough to begin practicing not being triggered when someone judges us. We need to know why we should not be...

States of Being and Stages of Being

9/23/2018
More
This week, Dr. Patrick previews the upcoming weekend Genogram activity with Dr. Gary Simmons that will happen at the Centre. The Centre and its ministry has a history and thus a pain body. The purpose is to identify the unconscious patterns that drive or run our ministry when we are not conscious, as well as those patterns and the unintended consequences of the current way we do ministry in the minister-centric practice. We then seek to answer: Who did we come here to be? Why does the Centre...

Waking Up to the Infinite Possibilities

9/16/2018
More
We have within us a Power that is greater than anything we shall ever contact in the outer. A power that can overcome every obstacle in our lives and set us safe, satisfied, and at peace, healed and prosperous in a new light, in a new life. We've fallen asleep and gotten caught up in the outer. But waking up is so beautiful and wonderful. We do this by working to our edge, to the limits that we've reached previously. Mind, all Mind, is right here. It is God's Mind, God's creative power,...

International Day of Service

9/9/2018
More
Service is: Giving to others, service to self, being a presence, compassion, being unselfish, doing something for others without expecting reward or gain, helping without expectation, and helping people when they are unable to complete a task for themselves. Being in service to others reminds us of our humanity. It's a chance to share our life experience with others and to realize that we are not so unique. It helps us to feel better about ourselves, and to feel better about our world. It...

Never Give Up, But Always Give Over

9/2/2018
More
This week, guest speaker Nadene Rogers teaches about never giving up but always giving over. On the theme of surrender, we learn how to let go of our identity to find ourselves, to let go of the roles we play and the masks that we wear. We give ourselves over to who we are being and how we are feeling and what we are thinking in every moment. We give ourselves over to that which is so much bigger than we are. We need to embrace our humanity to know our divinity.

Three Stories

8/26/2018
More
This week, Dr. Patrick teaches from the ideas of Shariff Abdullah and his work for societal transformation. There are three stories that are alive on the planet. The first story is the Keeper Society, who live in harmony with all of life. They are the indigenous people on the planet. The second story is the Breaker Society. These are the ones "creating a world that is best for me". They predict and control. They represent separation. The third story is the Mender Society, who create a world...

Spiral Dynamics - Beyond Just Processing Our Feelings

8/19/2018
More
In the system of Spiral Dynamics, the first tier is all about action. In the second tier, the theme is being. And as we move into the second tier, into yellow, we begin evolving from separation to inter-being. To facilitate this evolution, we accept what is, we honour what has been, and we understand that our actions may not shift things immediately. We must take heart that others are answering the call and are taking action to be part of this paradigm shift.
