Conscious Apocalypse

 

This month we continue with our series of webinars to introduce concepts relevant to today’s mythology. Our focus today is on Conscious Apocalypse and how to outlive our ruling institutions.
Although zealots have maintained for centuries that the world is about to end, is there nevertheless something apocalyptic about global warming, mass extinction, and even fanciful “news” about rampaging zombies? Why are all our key institutions failing us? What is the difference between conscious apocalypse–facing the Underworld as an initiatory rite of passage–and the unconscious apocalypse unfolding so destructively all around us? What tools and practices might guide us through a time of global rupture into the era of renewal beyond it?
