I recently finished a new website to communicate the process I use to help nurture conscious and collaborative relationships. This process is a synthesis of components that, together, create the magic of the Alchemy of Collaboration.
The medieval Alchemist stood at the crossroad of a shifting world view. Their experiments in science were rooted in ancient understandings of spirituality which eventually gave way to the “age of enlightenment”. Their goal was to refine gold from base metals and to find the elixir that would prolong life. Their intuition was focused on higher values and the enhancement of life, but their primitive spirituality gave way to the “reason” of a new era.
Today we are at another crossroads. This time, we are shifting from the “age of reason” and it’s Darwinian focus on competition for the “survival of the fittest” to a focus on collaboration for the well being of all. We are taking the best of science and finding a spirituality rooted in our common longing and need. Once again, our intuition is focused on higher values and the enhancement of life – for all.
The Alchemy of Collaboration is the empowerment created through a synthesis of collaborative tools. These tools focus on cultivating the essential components of interpersonal awareness, conscious communication, graceful agreement, participatory decision making, and conflict transformation. Through this process of community building, our goal is to refine the gold in relationships and enhance the life in organizations. Through the magic of synergy, we can help facilitate a shift to a new era of enlightenment – to a co-creative path and a future of empowered collaboration.
