Awakening to a New Story: The Evolutionary Imperative of Our Time – Celebrating Dr Anne Baring at 90


A donation-based event hosted by:
The Scientific and Medical Network
and
Humanity Rising
 
with Dr Anne Baring, Jules Cashford, Dr Scilla Elworthy, 
Dr Christopher Bache, Dr Jim Garrison, David Lorimer

 

Come and join our conversation to celebrate Anne Baring’s 90th birthday on the day itself! Anne’s work has been a beacon of light, love and wisdom for many decades, and her passion and commitment to the message and presence of Sacred Feminine in our lives and future is profoundly important – she is a living inspiration.
 
We can all agree that we live at a time of great peril and unparalleled opportunity where the imperative to change our attitude to life becomes more intense by the day. We need to understand the historical and psychological roots of our global crisis if we are to move into a new story of mutuality, reciprocity and interconnection in order to come into harmony with the Earth and each other – choosing love and care over power and exploitation. Nothing less will suffice.
 
Anne writes: This is a time of revelation and a crucial time of choice: the revelation of the grievous harm we have inflicted on the life of the planet, and the choice we need to make to transform our relationship with it from one of dominance and exploitation to one of service and love. We live in a world that has been governed by the masculine archetype for some 4,000 years, with no feminine archetype to balance it, no sacred marriage between them. As a result, world culture and the human psyche have become dangerously out of alignment with the earth and the cosmos. All our relationships need healing but above all, our relationship with nature and the earth because that is the primary one that has been out of balance for millennia and is in desperate need of healing. 
 
Collectively, we are going through a profound alchemical process of transformation as we live through this pandemic. This is an unprecedented trauma, affecting the whole of humanity. On top of this, we are confronted by the fact of intensifying global warming and the question of whether we are approaching the end of our time on this planet. Our children and grandchildren are deeply distressed and anxious about their future. These events constitute a spiritual emergency, shaking us to our core. But the very peril we are in may be our salvation if we can grasp the message of what is happening—that this is a rite of passage we are going through: a shamanic rite of profound awakening and healing, an experience powerful enough to stop us in our tracks and help us to understand what has to change. We may take comfort from the fact that the science of alchemy reminds us that in all chaos there is a cosmos; in all disorder a secret order.”
