The Celestine Prophecy (Redfield, 1996) was not a great work of literature, but it contained many good insights (and more than 9).
In 2000 I copied the description below of a group process based on intuitively sensing the flow of energy in a group conversation. You could also say it’s based on extremely fluid listening, and non-attachment – which are not easy to come by in groups, but which can make any group process much more effective.
The question is, how can this level of group consciousness be developed? A simple answer is that it can if there is a great deal of motivation on the part of group members, and if at least some of the members can model the method and help coach the others.
Is this really a “method” – or actually a level of collective consciousness that many groups experience, regardless of the particular method or process used? Which methods are especially good at culturing listening and dropping ego-attachments?
