In the summer of 2002 the Collective Wisdom Initiative
(CWI) convened a small working group that began an exploratory study
of sound and vibration as vital and often unnoticed aspects of collective
wisdom. A year later, CWI held a week-long intensive to not only initiate
a line of experience-based study of sound and vibration related to
collective wisdom, but also to create an artifact for use by others.
Three questions guided the initial inquiry:
• How does working with increased
awareness of vibratory dimensions of group life enable apprehension
of non-ordinary insights and wisdom?
• How might attention to vibratory
frequencies involving voice, sound, color, touch, rhythm, story,
and image facilitate our understanding of the invisible dimensions
of group life? What influence might it have on a group's capacity
to access collective wisdom?
• How can we consciously tune
and be tuned in groups in ways that allow for a higher intelligence
to be present and amplified?
A Listening Guide of 48 pages, Becoming Consciously
Vibralingual, with accompanying 28 track CD is now available
from this week-long intensive. Together they offer examples and experience,
suggest practices and illuminate avenues of further exploration. A
sampling of the CD and Listening Guide, as well as ordering
instructions, are offered below:
