Are you longing to really engage and be fully met by others and by life itself?
The automatic, unquestioned notions of awakening and the more isolated solo path of transformation – may not be the wave of the future.
“Driven by the forces of love, the fragments of the world seek each other so that the world may come to being.”
Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, The Phenomenon of Man
WHO WE ARE
The Evolutionary Collective is whole-heartedly participating in the emergence of the new paradigm – the paradigm of unity – a higher order of human relating. The Evolutionary Collective is an ever-expanding global community of committed pioneers who have come together to embody the highest potentials for human consciousness, culture and spiritual awakening. Millions of us, at this point, have done sufficient amounts of personal spiritual work and individual development and are ready to move to the next stage of awakening for humanity. Some have called it a new stage of human evolution altogether – we are moving from being homo sapien sapiens to what Barbara Marx Hubbard calls homo universalis, or Teilhard de Chardin called Homo Progressivus. Many of us know that we are the cross-over generation – moving from self-reflective, individual self-concern to an awareness of self that is more fluid, interpenetrating, simultaneously aware of self and other. We know that Unity consciousness is real, many of us have had individual momentary experiences that have changed our lives. It’s now time to enter into the experience of unity by awakening and living it together. We can access unity and live not only from a powerful sense of connectedness, but also, a surprisingly increased experience of our uniqueness.
The Evolutionary Collective is designed around emergence – not a particular teaching or teacher. As a master teacher, Patricia Albere is facilitating this emergence, helping the Collective navigate the emergence of mutual awakening. The excitement of discovering and embodying together this new consciousness is a gift that we need each other for. Unlike solo enlightenment, we cannot do this alone.
The Evolutionary Collective exists to gather together those of us from around the globe who are ready to give ourselves to this new stage of human development. The internet is an expression of the outer form of this evolutionary movement of connection. The ‘inner net’ is the evolutionary edge of our interior development where we can discover and live from the field of interconnectedness. Many people have said that we need a consciousness that is equal to the science and technologies we are creating. The Evolutionary Collective is building a society of people who are developing the unity consciousness – the ‘inner net’- that is necessary to navigate this new world.
The Evolutionary Collective is not a course – it’s more of an incubator where we experiment and explore how this consciousness works- where you can join and experiment in ways that work for you- either virtually or in-person.
At the core of the Evolutionary Collective is an ongoing expanding group of global leaders, pioneers and innovators who meet and work together in person and online to develop this consciousness of communion. And yet, the Evolutionary Collective has different levels of invitation and engagement. No matter how you engage with the Evolutionary Collective, your experience will help to bring forth a new way of relating while also activating your own unique and necessary contribution to the whole. Most of the participants find that their highest purpose cannot be fulfilled alone – they need like-minded/hearted others to become orchestrated by evolution. Personal success, whether worldly or spiritual, has little meaning without this type of surrender.
The ‘Mutual Awakening’ that occurs in the Evolutionary Collective, though routine and simple practices, promotes an awakening that causes you to enter Unity consciousness, or ‘Reality’ together. This highly connected state is also called the ‘intersubjective field’ or ‘higher WE’. Whatever you call it – it’s a new domain of human consciousness where what is ‘between us’ is alive, scintillating and brimming with creativity and love. By participating in this Mutual Awakening work with us, you will enter into a larger interconnected presence and awareness that will active your own and humanity’s evolution.
Founder of Evolutionary Collective | Contemporary Spiritual Teacher
Patricia Albere is at ground zero of an evolutionary stream of spiritual awakening. One in which we learn to go beyond individual psychology and transformation into a new space of mutual awakening or ‘inter-being’ or ‘we-mysticism’.
She is the founder and director of the Evolutionary Collective and an internationally known contemporary spiritual teacher and author. Her unique discovery of the essential components that create an awakened ‘we space’ is transforming our understanding of what is possible in the space between us.
The Evolutionary Collective creates a powerful field of shared consciousness that moves humanity far beyond the limits of personal growth, well beyond any imagined potentials. Patricia has worked with over 150,000 people in groups in the last 40 years. Her mastery as a transformative teacher is now innovating a new field of ‘inter-subjective awakening’ and post-personal development.
There are currently two main hubs for the Evolutionary Collective Yearlong Intensives, New York and San Francisco Bay Area. She is also on the faculty of THE SHIFT NETWORK and teaches virtual intensives on their global educational platform each year.
It all started in 1971, when Albere unknowingly found herself at the leading edge of the human potential movement, as an original member of the EST organization (currently called the Landmark Education). Working with cultural icon and transformational movement pioneer, Werner Erhard, Albere played an important role in expanding est’s reach into the world and developing and training the organization’s leaders. Her work with Erhard laid the foundation for Albere’s passionate commitment to facilitating real transformation, which, she affirms, is at the heart of what makes human life meaningful—“ real transformation means that a person’s life is irrevocably changed in a way that empowers them to fulfill their highest potentials.”
By age 33, Albere was highly revered as a public speaker, transformational teacher and workshop leader, having already touched the lives of thousands of people. Her inquiry into human transformation was catapulted to an entirely new level by way of a profound personal relationship that forever changed her, while seeding her current work with evolutionary relationships and mutuality.
A chance meeting with the man who would become her partner of four years opened up new experiential pathways for Albere to discover the life-transforming potential of sacred intimacy and the inter-communion of two souls. She experienced a dual awakening, one where the awakening was shared and catalyzed through a way of being together. They lived from a dimension of existence that holds the invisible and visible worlds together and through which flows higher communion and transfiguration.
“For the first time I experienced the limitless potential that exists between two human beings,” said Albere. ”We pushed the boundaries of love, moving through all the challenges that arise in any relationship, while traversing previously untapped potentials of our own consciousness. And from there, I was shown a new paradigm of relating possible for all human beings.”
Albere’s awakening to this new paradigm of relatedness catapulted her onto the forefront of an evolutionary, spiritual and cultural movement, while inspiring her to create the Evolutionary Collective, a transformational work focused on discovering, cultivating and materializing what we’ve not yet imagined possible by way of creativity, connection, relationship and collective consciousness.
“It’s a really exciting time for humanity to explore what’s possible in all forms of relationship,” said Albere, “because it’s the action of coming together that is allowing us to push way beyond the edges of our own personal growth and liberation into a truly inspired and expansive unknown by way of authentic relatedness, mutuality and love.”
“There are a handful of us who are ready to connect beyond the limitations of the ego and survival consciousness. Evolutionary relatedness demands integrity, it demands that we accept responsibility for the inescapable influence we have on one another, and it demands a wholehearted commitment to serve more than our individual selves. It’s from that orientation that we are discovering and creating the tools, techniques and means for the innovative action the planet is urgently inviting; and the reality is: those pieces can only be created together.” There are currently two main hubs for the Evolutionary Collective Live Intensives, New York and San Francisco. She is also on the faculty of THE SHIFT NETWORK and will be teaching two courses on WE-MYSTICISM in 2016.
