"Interstellar" Conscious Movie-of-the-Month Virtual Discussion (Video)

Here is the video recording of our April 2020 Conscious Movie-of-the-Month Live Discussion of the film Interstellar (2014) and its resonance with our current real world challenges.

We had a wonderful session! Big thanks to everyone for making this a deep and profound mindwalk into Interstellar and into our current challenges!

Here are some links for things mentioned in the session:

This Liminal Moment

We are in a profound moment for our species. The evolutionary challenge many of us have been talking about has now kicked into high gear and we are entering what anthropologists and systems theorists call the liminal phase.

This moment is the chrysalis phase, the stage where the caterpillar turns to liquid inside the cocoon but the butterfly has yet to begin to emerge. This is a moment of pure possibility...and also extreme danger.

All our systems are in flux across all domains of existence - physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, relational, cultural, social... We are in what Integral Theory refers to as a tetra-evolutionary moment.

All four main domains of reality -- the Individual and Collective, Interior and Exterior aspects of all that is -- are in synchronous transformation on a global, civilization-wide scale.

This transformation is happening at an unprecedented rate and scale. In the language of technology this is a major operating system reboot.

Time to fasten our seatbelts, put on our oxygen masks and help each other through the turbulence. This is just the beginning...2020 is the gateway to the Age of Transformation.

To keep up to date on the leading edge of this transformation from day-to-day check out my Arc of Consciousness page where I try to share links and posts from the many explorers playing at this frothy edge between our present moment and potential future... https://www.facebook.com/arcofconsciousness

NOTE: For most of us on the planet these are truly challenging times. For Jews and Christians we are entering the time of Passover and Easter, and this year they seem more poignant than ever. That is because the stories around these holidays are about liminal moments in the human story. And as many of us celebrate these holy-days, the challenge of profoundly transformative moments in the arc of the human story can hold a deeper and more expansive meaning in times like these.

April 2020 Conscious Movie-of-the-Month

This month’s Conscious Movie-of-the-Month is Interstellar (2014).

Virtual Discussion date: April 18, 2020 at 1 p.m. PT

During the pandemic we will be focusing on specific media that can help us during this crisis by lifting our spirits and helping us gain deeper and more expansive understandings of the challenges around us.

This month we will be exploring Interstellar (2014), another groundbreaking evolutionary cinematic work by integral filmmaker Christopher Nolan, which is eerily prescient to these times while inspiring with its exploration of how to use the power of love to transcend great obstacles.

A civilization on the edge of collapse. Our species is facing possible extinction. A parent faced with the challenge of saving the future for his family and the whole human race. In the face of this great challenge people all around them respond from fear and denial…but some respond with love and courage. Which way will win? Will humanity survive and thrive or will we bury our heads in the sand until there is nothing left?

Years ahead of its time, this integrally-informed science fiction epic attempts to answer this question. It incorporates the capturing of the real physics of outer space while simultaneously concretizing the non-physical dimension of love as a cosmic level force of existence, on the scale of gravity and centrifugal force.

If you have not seen Interstellar you can stream it on most of the major streaming services. We recommend watching the film at least twice, the second time with the intention of seeing any patterns of consciousness you had not seen before. You are also invited to share your thoughts, reflections and musings about the movie in our group's online discussion forum. And then of course join us on April 18th at 1 p.m. PST for our virtual discussion of the film and how it speaks to us at this moment in human history.
