Exploring Illuminative Systems in Informal Networks of Adults

By Amy K. Scatliff


Are ‘higher ’ and hard to define sensations like synchronicity, love, wholeness, and appreciation part of a pattern or illuminative system that is connected to a larger ecological network or evolutionary design meant to establish homeostasis within the planet? Meeting as groups, in person, or online posting to an interactive website, adults tracked, recorded and described in their own terms everyday encounters with illumination. Illumination in this sense could encompass both spiritual and/or secular significance. Participants built data files of illuminative sensation recorded in video, text, sound bite, drawing and/or journaling. This spatial and sensory awareness activity, initiating from an appreciative foundation, eventually leads to participants conducting informal skillshares in which adults teach one another the strengths they possess when illuminated. A possible outcome of such skillshares could be adults collectively designing new courses, programs, and products for their immediate community
