Debbie delaCuesta: Kenosis and the Highest Stages of Development
In this audio dialogue, Patricia Albere and Debbie delaCuesta explore the later stages of Mature Adult Development. Adult Development is the study and understanding of the evolution across levels – psychologically, spiritually, interpersonally – that occurs in adult life. Debbie is an expert in various human development models. She and Patricia will discuss the adult development model – what it is, and what it can reveal to us about ourselves as conscious, spiritual adults. They explore how this model can show us even higher possible levels of awareness, including how the experience of surrender and kenosis (self-emptying) is, at a certain point, a natural spiritual and psychological progression.

Audio: What Is the Origination Point?
In this Q&A from an online course, Patricia engages with a participant about a concept that she calls the “Origination Point.” The Origin Point is a causal space that is deeper than anything unique to the individual. It’s an energy that is expressed through the individual, but there’s nothing individual about it. Patricia explores how to access the Origin Point and describes what it’s like to share in this deeper point together.

Audio: Love As A Demand, As Calling Forth
In the last several decades, many of us have worked hard (and are still working) to learn love unconditionally, without attachments or expectations. We’ve practiced acceptance, trying not to push others (or ourselves) not to be anywhere they’re not. And although these things are important and need to be included, is there a kind of love, a way of being together that WANTS and DEMANDS the fullest realization of the other? A love that calls forth their innate goodness, truth, and beauty to be unleashed into the world. In this special Valentine’s Day talk, Patricia Albere explores this new kind of love and what it can unleash for collectives, humanity, and the world.

Jacob Nordby: Blessed Are the Weird – Visionaries of the Coming Reality

For those with the eyes to see it, it’s clear that even in the midst of our current challenges and polarization, we are on the precipice of a world of incredible new possibilities.

Who are the outliers, the creatives, the ‘weird’ ones who are needed to usher in this new era? Is it possible that a new kind of ‘belonging’ is coming into existence where the visionary misfits who have always worked alone on the fringes are now being called upon to unite to create this new world?
