When Terri was approached by Sahlan Momo, the publisher of Spanda Journal, to write an article on Collective Intelligence, Terri, Geoff and I decided that it naturally made sense for the three of us to write it together. What better way to present this topic, than collectively? Over the past eleven years the three of us have been immersed in developing and observing causal collectives and researching the intelligence that arises through multiple perspectives when individuals open together into a shared presence of causal consciousness.
Our 9-month leadership program, Generating Transformative Change (GTC), is a testament to the profound value in cultivating and harnessing this form of intelligence. Across cultures and continents, we have found that through a cultivation of this kind of consciousness, individuals and collectives experience outcomes that are exponentially beneficial to all aspects of the system. Rather than competition between individuals to produce the best products which also can promote corruption, greed, and winners and losers, Causal Collective Intelligence encourages right alignment and synchronization with all of life through a felt-sense of the whole and deep listening to emergence from the great Unknown. In a sense, this is nothing new. We are simply following the laws of nature in our collective receptivity and alignment with what is asked of us, from the deepest Ground of our Being, beyond and including concrete facts and subtle imaginings.
Through Causal Collective Intelligence, together we are reclaiming and evolving the natural principles that result in happiness, wholeness and health for the greatest depth and span for life on earth. In the article, we ask, what if our political and business leaders acted from these principles worldwide? We may also ask, what if all of us began opening to causal collective intelligence, now? Then, perhaps, our sons and daughters and grandchildren will be born into a world where all of life matters and their leadership will assume and express that deep universal care for the whole.
