In the social realm, as soon as a change agent names the intention to understand racism or how the patriarchy lives in women, the shadow – whether it is fear, privilege or judgement – activates. Even the most well-intending people may unexpectedly become distracted or unconsciously pulled into perpetuating the injustice they purport to set right.
This ambitious Social Alchemy experiment brought together 40 activists to explore the large social fields of Mother Earth, climate change, racism and the Presidential election. These cause-minded, heart-centered, impact-driven individuals yearn to influence and impact their lives, their communities, and the world. They came to experience Seeing with Your Heart Constellations combined with group processing and harvesting tools.
The Race Conversation Constellation went nearly two hours. Among the representatives were two for the Race Conversation, two for the Distraction, White Society, the Fear Response, Abuse of Power, Mother Earth, Those who Don’t have a Voice, the Indigenous People, the Unexpected and many others. As always, the Field is our teacher and its lessons are non-linear.
For this Constellation, we heard the first sentences in the new race conversation and the representative for white society stepped drown from a position of superiority:
Representative A: I see so many unnamed souls that had to suffer and die.
Representative B: I feel that.
At both the Social Alchemy Retreat and the North American Systemic Constellations Intensive, we were deeply impressed with our Seeing with Your Heart Immersion program graduates as they fulfill the program’s mission of contributing to the growing chorus of humans who are evolving human consciousness.
