At the Hyatt Olive 8 Hotel
LOVE EVOLVES… and as love evolves so does culture. The Evolutionary Collective is an expression of the next stage in the evolution of love.
Mutual Awakening occurs when we wake up together to higher possibilities of love and creativity that come alive in fully engaged and illuminated relatedness. When two or more people turn toward the Divinity in each other, something miraculous occurs. The space between us begins to wake up. It comes alive and it reveals possibilities for what ‘we’ can become together.
This is the domain of awakening that Patricia Albere has been working in for decades. And during all of this time, one of the things that has arisen again and again are experiences of love and intimacy that simply don’t fit into our available boxes. We simply don’t know what to do with experiences of love that abide outside of existing social norms – and yet many of us experience them.
In both the dynamic evening and experiential daylong program, you’ll discover a depth of relatedness that opens new possibilities of love, and you will gain a perspective on the historical development of love that allows you to see how the growth of love is the only thing that can re-create the world.
During the evening salon & one day retreat you will experience and embrace new expressions of love.
Forms of Love We’ve Never Known
When we encounter a form of love that we don’t understand, most often we either turn away from it or try to force it into some socially acceptable form to which it may or may not belong. There is another option. Throughout human history, there have been bold pioneers who have birthed new expressions of love. In fact, most major shifts in human consciousness were initiated by courageous acts of fearless love.
In this dynamic and experiential evening program, you will explore some of the new expressions of love that are emerging through mutual awakening. You will enter into a paradigm of relatedness that reveals new possibilities of love. And you will gain a perspective on the historical development of love that will help you see how these new expressions can play a role in the creation of a new world.
Perhaps your spiritual journey has already brought you into contact with new expressions of love. Maybe you were able to navigate that sacred encounter gracefully, or maybe you struggled with it. In this evening of practice and sharing you will explore the new paradigm of relatedness that these experiences point to, and learn to navigate them effectively when they arise in your life.

Themes to Explore
A Brief History of Love
Experience the journey of love from its roots in Greek philosophy and the Judeo-Christian traditions through the Romantic era and into the modern world. Marvel at the brave individuals of every age who were willing to love differently. Opening to Love is the only way out of the modern malady of isolation and loneliness from which so many suffer.
Forms of Love
Love comes in many forms and expressions – brotherly love, familial love, romantic love, divine love… We will explore love in its different forms and discover the qualities and characteristics that make each unique. We will pay particular attention to the experience of divine love and invoke an experience of this all-encompassing light that shines everywhere and infuses the soul with an existential sense of trust and surrender. This is the unconditional love of God and of the great mystical traditions – a love that not only comforts our soul, but also reveals the divinity within each of us.
The Love of Mutual Awakening
When we turn toward each other, we enliven the space between us. We become simultaneously more deeply aware of each other and at the same time aware of a new being – a new life – that is born between us. As we allow the subtle possibilities that come alive between us to reveal themselves, we fall in love in a new way. We are co-conspirators in an evolutionary possibility. If we have the courage, then we have the opportunity to give ourselves into the higher possibilities of our relatedness and allow something to grow between us that neither of us could hold on our own.
What Recent Participants Are Saying…
“The experience within the mutually awakening field has forever changed me. It is both a call and an answer to the yearning of my heart. We go beyond the pursuit of awakening, as the direct embodiment of Awake Consciousness. We move as one radical heart, in active service of ALL that is possible, here and now. The words of this mind can only do so much. Such love! I am humbled…”
-Odile Nicole Del Giudice
“The moment by moment newness of the mutual awakening process captured my heart. I watched the peeling away of each layer of pretense as it showed up and melted into the ever-present vastness in the light of awareness. The mind broke free from motive, agenda and influence. Vastness, Peace, Love and Joy were present.”
“This group had me at hello! Patricia Albere, spiritual pioneer in *mutual awakening,* blew everyone’s minds, through SIMPLE practices, almost instantly. It’s happening: The opportunity to join a cohort of Awakened practitioners committed to inducing *even higher* levels of consciousness and bliss in each other! Moving beyond the teacher-student duality. Into the space where kind Heart, clear Mind, and powerful Soul meet…”
Many of us long for a depth of connection with others that too often doesn’t seem to be available. Maybe we’ve tasted it in the past. It might have been for a few hours, a few weeks, or if we were lucky a few years. Regardless of the time frame, once we experience the opening of true contact, we never forget it.
This level of connection leaves no potential unfulfilled. We are met completely in every way. The totality of this relationship cannot be contained in any conventional definition of love.
So what was it?
It is love, but it is a love of higher order. It is a love that is newly emerging on this planet, and only among those who make themselves available to it.
During the evening Salon and one day retreat you will engage in practices designed to open your heart and mind to a new form of love.
You will experience an intimacy that emerges out of essential contact and spiritual alignment.
You will also discover that this emergence of love is part of a long history of love’s evolution.
Over the centuries pioneering individuals have periodically stepped beyond convention to embody new forms of love. Eventually, these expressions of care and intimacy become established in culture.
We are looking for love’s new pioneers – those who know that our future depends on a higher order of love, and are willing to step out beyond convention to embrace it now.
Please join Patricia Albere on October 28th and 29th for two amazing and enlightening events.
Patricia Albere, Founder and Director of the Evolutionary Collective, is at ground zero of an evolutionary stream of spiritual awakening. One in which you will learn to go beyond individual psychology and transformation into a new space of mutual awakening or ‘inter-being’.
Patricia is an internationally known contemporary spiritual teacher and author. Her unique discovery of the essential components that create an awakened ‘we space’ will transform your understanding of what is possible in the space between us and in creating new fields of higher collective consciousness. Patricia’s work creates a powerful field of shared consciousness that reveals previously unimagined potentials for human development that can and are moving humanity far beyond the limits of personal growth. She 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.
You are invited to engage with Patricia and members of the Evolutionary Collective in Seattle, WA in two separate events—the (r)EVOLUTION OF LOVE Salon on Friday, October 28th, and the Urban Retreat on Saturday October 29th. Both events take place at the Hyatt Olive 8 hotel in downtown Seattle.

SESSION 4 — 4:00pm to 5:00pm
