A panel discussion with respect to a new Origin Story, the story we are living, and Our future.
Throughout time, humanity has told stories; stories that teach or soothe our children; stories that lift our hair, scared; stories that shift or lift us from the mundane. What story can lift us from the mundane and scary reality we’re living, into “the more beautiful world we”, as Charles Eisenstein says, “know in our hearts is possible”?
Our panelists offer their own perspectives and wisdom teachings about the purpose of Humanity and the times we are going through. We then consider together what will enable Humanity to rise from our destructive patterns. Games engage some; a new mythology may serve others; what will it take to unite us all? Syntropy suggests that a positive goal (a story with a “happy ending”) has the power to engage our hearts and our bodies and activate the Power that empowers All That Is. What story serves us all, in all our diversity, and thus the Greater One we collectively are?

Suzanne Taylor deals with the massive shift of consciousness underway, from self-interest to sensing our mutuality. Her signature says: A social catalyst of collective sanity, weaving the spiritual into the political, Up until the ‘70s (as Sue Taylor) Suzanne acted in top TV shows and made many TV commercials. Then she turned to work on our inner lives and produces imaginative projects to this day. A highlight was making an award-winning documentary, What On Earth? Inside the Crop Circle Mystery, a subject that might prove we aren’t the only intelligence in the universe. She connects people on the cutting edge of thought and says, “In my blueprint for a workable world, conversation is now in order.”
