Gaia’s Human Hive Integrators Define their Purpose
We are integrators of Integral City Wisdom in service of the wellbeing of Gaia, the Human Hive and the Planet of Cities and Eco-Regions.
Our wisdom holder group, as an expression of the Spirit of Integral City, senses, responds and amplifies We-space scaling from the Space Inside of our Selves and our prototype of the Human Hive Mind, through Spaces Outside, to the Planet of Cities, to the Morphic/Knowing Field, all in service to the Wellbeing of Gaia and the Great Mystery.
We-Space, Integral City and the Knowing Field
We-Space and Systemic Constellation Work have become an intimate part of Integral City’s GHHI Community of Practice, informing our core purpose, intention and commitment to co-create conditions for the emergence of the Integral City.
Our wisdom holder group has explored the paradoxical nature of the relationship of individuals’ awareness, collective awareness and emergent field awareness in the context of the city being both a Human Hive and Gaia’s Reflective Organ.
As We-space, we see ourselves as a prototype of the Human Hive Mind – developing through 6 steps:
- Individual transition
- Noticing We-space as a presencing of the Human Hive Mind (HHM)
- Exploring space inside, space outside, space between, and expanding our boundaries to include the Mystery and the field of HHM.
- Co-Creating New stories
- Facilitating Systemic Constellation Work; opening the Field
- Debriefing process of Systemic Constellation Work
Systemic Constellation Work (SCW) frames research and development, in the Knowing Field (aka morphic field) that expands our ways of knowing and supports presencing, prototyping and processing, allowing us to integrate, align and synergize multiple elements, entities, interests and motives, to create healthy, dynamic, comprehensive solutions to complex problems within rapidly changing complex environments.
While our We-space has become an expression of the Spirit of Integral City, we also see this We-space scaling from the Space Inside of our prototype of the Human Hive Mind, through Spaces Outside, to the Planet of Cities, to the Morphic/Knowing Field, all in service to the We-space of Gaia and the Great Mystery.
