From Breakdown to Breakthrough

A new perspective of the Cosmos, Earth, and our place in deeptime is urgently needed to navigate this pivotal moment. — Jennifer Morgan, President, Deeptime Network; and author, Universe Story Trilogy

A New Way of Being

What is a perspective and way of being that can help pave the way to a flourishing deep future?  Seeing our place and role inside of deeptime, thinking long term with the whole in mind, and understanding the powers of Cosmogenesis are key.  A creative, systems-orientation can inspire and support this pivotal evolutionary moment.

We are created in order to evolve the cosmos.  — Maria Montessori

Introducing Four Big Ideas  . . .

  • Context: Orienting to the whole, a vast evolving universe.
  • Matrix: Understanding our embeddedness, and radical relatedness, in a participatory universe.
  • Subjectivity: (self organization, interiority) is inherent in everything in a Cosmogenetic universe.
  • Action: Birthing the Ecozoic as a process of co-creation with our planet Earth.

Awareness that the universe is more Cosmogenesis than cosmos might be the greatest change in human consciousness . . . since the awakening of the human mind . . .  — Thomas Berry, The Great Work

 Deeptime Leadership, Personal Empowerment Leadership, Climate change, Evolution Leadership, Big Bang Theory

. . . with the Ecozoic and . . .


Thomas Berry suggested the name “Ecozoic” to define an era where humans live with mutually enhancing relationships with each other . . . and with the whole Earth community.  He considered the successful emergence of the Ecozoic Era as the Great Work of our time.

 . . . Diversity, Equity & Inclusion as Our Omega Point.

When we understand our deeptime context, radical relationality, subjectivity of the whole and everything, and action as participating in evolution . . . everything changes.  We are empowered to work with larger forces to make DEI a reality for humans and all species.

Explore the universe from a Deeptime perspective that sees the cosmos as: 1) our largest context, a vast differentiating single entity; 2) our matrix, a communion of interconnected relationships; 3) subjective, a field of self-organizing creativity in which we’re embedded and have our being; and 4) a domain where action means participating in evolution.  Explore the science and meaning of these four principles and how they provide a revolutionary approach to leadership, self-empowerment, and transformation.

Our Theory of Change . . .

Seeing ourselves as integral to the Cosmic Adventure . . .

  • Our zest for participation is unleashed.
  • The universe becomes our teacher and guide.
  • We trust and work with the creativity of the universe.
  • We embody and fully express our gifts in the world.
  • We draw on the wisdom of deeptime to create a flourishing deep future.

Love is the most powerful and still most unknown energy in the world. — Pierre Teilhard de Chardin


What people are saying about the Deeptime Network . . .

" It is so supportive to have a whole community, from around the world, working together to embody and live out a deep connection to the new cosmology in its ethical and spiritual dimensions. We are the Universe emerging. "
- M.J. Zimmerman

" After 20 years of living into the Universe Story, I was reawakened to how truly empowering it is through what is emerging for others on parallel paths from around the globe. "
— Penny Andrews

" If you're seeking a meaningful story that explains our place in our Universe and in Nature, and like-minded global citizens, this course may be your next step on that journey. " - David Morton Rintoul

" Everything I have known in life is being integrated into unifying perspectives and connectedness which come like seeds being nourished from a deep space of love, abundance, and creativity "
— Marides "Madett" Virola-Gardiola, Philippines

Deeptime courses are not just about learning new ideas, they are a way to commune together to help each other spiral upwards to new heights of wisdom and awakening. "
— Sarbmeet Kanwal

" I am co-creating a space for children older than 7 years old and this course has been granting me a deeper understanding of how I want to position myself and act in this space while deep listening to children. " — Joana Benetton, Brazil

" Being around so many talented and confident people has helped me with developing a children’s book for Montessori Sunday school. " — Nancee Cline

It is all and more than I expected – I am not new to the material though have certainly learned and gained new insights into the wonderful planet we call “home”. 

The assignments are doable, interesting, and inviting.  I am enjoying the course very much.

Am loving it. The small groups are wonderful. It is such a marvelous group of participants. The networking is fabulous.  Love the opening and thoughtful reflections.

I look forward to every session.

I had to miss two weeks and was aware there was something missing in my life, so I know I am finding it really useful and challenging.  Also good to make connections.

I am feeling inspired, energized, and more-connected-than ever!  I am also enjoying the arc of the course, the meditations, quote sharing, and especially the content.
