Introduction to Energetics course

This 4-week course explains with simple language and concepts what subtle energy and information are, and how to work with them in the context of organizations and nature. The very latest scientific research and leading-edge practices point towards a realm of significant possibility. Drawing on real-life experience of applying some of these approaches, Peter Merry opens our eyes to a vast and generally untapped potential in individual and collective development.
The course includes: four live webinars on Zoom and six videos with Peter Merry, extra resources, assignments
The first live session is Friday April 2nd 16.00-17.00 CET and then the following three Fridays in April.

“This course is one of its kind in the world! Definitely for those who would like to uncover the deep mysteries of reality and energy.” (Course participant)

Course: Organization by Natural Design

Many people exposed to Re-inventing or Teal Organizations, Integral Theory, and/or Spiral Dynamics love the concepts but struggle to work out how to apply the theory in practice. Dr Peter Merry has been applying them to organizations for nearly 20 years. In this short course he shares his understanding of the theories as well as his framings for and experiences of organizational design and development. His experience covers corporations, government and NGOs.

The Live Online version of this course includes 4 hour-long live sessions with Peter Merry, every Friday at 16.00 CET.

Learning Outcomes:

By the end of the microcourse, you should be able to:

  • explain how Integral Theory and Spiral Dynamics can be applied to organizations
  • use the theories to inform your conversations with colleagues and clients in organizations
  • analyze the current situation and dynamics in an organization from an integral evolutionary perspective
  • explain how change works in organizational cultures and systems
  • design interventions in organizations informed by an integral evolutionary approach

The program includes:

Merry Musings 4 – The Pain and the Promise

When a tree wants to send its branches higher into the sky, it needs to send its roots deeper into the earth. When a person or society wants to move to the next level of development, we have to dig down into our past to release the energy held there by earlier traumas. Humanity’s current condition and deep desire to move towards a future that honours our interconnectedness is tied to a moment in our past where we split from an instinctive experience of being part of the Earth, and pushed away from that past without managing to re-integrate it into our identity – creating trauma and shadow. That is why we have been able to do what we have done to each other and the rest of life on Earth. It is also what is holding us back from accessing the next level of interconnectedness in the subtle realms. As Ken Wilber said in Up from Eden, “When the Great Mother is repressed, the Great Goddess is concealed”. This Merry Musing dives deep into this topic.

Leading from the Field talk

In this talk I describe the twelve principles of energetic stewardship from Leading from the Field. If we assume, as both the new scientists and ancient wisdom traditions tell us, that all of reality is actually composed of interlocking dynamic energy fields, that life is a continuous process of organising energetic information into form, then what does that mean for the way we need to lead our organisations, be they business, civil society, government, community or even family systems? This talk goes into the broader perspective as well as exploring twelve specific principles for taking into account the subtle dimension of reality as we lead our initiatives. Peter’s latest book, Leading from the Field, provides an illustrated guide to this work.

The talk:

  • describes the importance of engaging with energy and information fields for successful leadership;
  • explains simply the relationship between the subtle and manifest dimensions of our worlds;
  • describes how to put the twelve principles of energetic stewardship into practice in your own leadership contexts.

The Way of Wyrd

This is a talk I gave on Brian Bates’ work on the Wyrd – a West European Tradition of Subtle Interconnectedness.

In the so-called “Dark Ages” Western Europe was home to the Anglo-Saxons and Norse. These cultures had great respect for the interconnected web of life that they referred to as “wyrd”. Over the last decades the Western world has imported Eastern concepts such as ch’i which have helped us to rediscover the sacred/hidden dimensions of reality. However, few people know that we had our own native concepts, language and practices for the subtle world. Brian Bates, in his book The Way of Wyrd, brought it to our attention, creating a novel based on an ancient manuscript in the British Library that tells the story of a missionary scribe being sent to discover the ways of the “pagans.”

This talk explores the world of wyrd and how it relates to eastern traditions as well as recent scientific discoveries. It is part of the Merry Musings series with Ubiquity University.

By the end of this session you should be able to:

  • Compare Wyrd with other traditions and modern science

Embodying the Future – Talk at Embodiment Conference

Embodying the Future – why the body is the key to leading from the field

In order to navigate successfully through these turbulent times of transition, we need to be able to access the information in the subtle fields. Energy can only be interpreted through the body. In order to reach up to higher dimensions we need to send our roots deeper. This session will explore the role of the body in working with subtle energies, and what we need to do individually and collectively to be able to unlock the promise that this work holds.

Register free here for the conference with loads of other great speakers too! 

Talk on Coaching from the Field

I will be speaking at The Coaching Conclave 2020 October 10-11. There’s a great line up of speakers. I’ll be talking about how you can coach people to work co-creatively with the subtle fields of information and energy so they can enhance the probability of achieving their life-affirrning goals. It will draw on my upcoming book, Leading from the Field.
