The Art of Being Sphere

A play about finding our way

“The play’s the thing.”
In a social order where “time is money” and “money makes the world go ’round”, play might be considered frivolous, inefficient, and unproductive. However, it is often said that playfulness is a sign of intelligence in animals.

Luna Solterra and the Heart of Mother Earth

An intense drama is set by a biological crisis (a global pandemic), a personal crisis (identity, race, gender, mental health, suicide), a social crisis (distraction, disconnection, disillusionment, dissension, disorder, dislocation, disintegration), an economic crisis (market collapse, labour, housing, global supply chain, material shortages), a political crisis (disenfranchisement, disengagement, disempowerment, inequality, division, protest, violence, war), a technological crisis (weapons proliferation, attention economy, surveillance capitalism, artificial intelligence accelerating change, failures of cryptocurrency and decentralization tech), an ecological crisis (pollution, climate change, sixth extinction of species), and a metaphysical crisis (a clash of worldviews: scientism, capitalism, dogmatism).
There are many reasons to despair in the shadows of all of these crises. Luna Solterra finds herself asking questions about where to find light among the shadows. Her name is a clue to a puzzle, prompting a curiosity that draws her out of the fear of what lies in the shadows and into the light of the wonder and beauty of the world when one slows down long enough to consider the relationships between oneself and Moon and Sun and Earth. One’s relationship to Universe reveals a oneness that can be experienced in each moment of present awareness. That shift in consciousness changes everything. And everything is change.
Imagination opens one to the infinite potential of life
Intuition guides one to navigate life by connecting to one’s authentic self
Intention grows from one’s grounded and centred feeling of connection to all that is
Integrity flows from the relationships that form through one’s connections to all of life
Interbeing connects one to another in a dance between the ocean and the shore, the universal and the particular.
Universe is an ocean of light and Earth but one shore in a cosmos of many shores. Small does not mean insignificant. There is life here, and that life is the seed of imagination. Who knows what this seed might grow to become?

Get Started

This doc is an experiment in collaboration on our collective narrative as beings who inhabit the spaces between Moon, Sun, and Earth. We are finding common ground through connection and relationship. We are growing our capacity to integrate intention and intuition with imagination to realize interbeing in connection and relationship with all of life.
The prompt is to consider life as a play and to write one’s own part into this moment in spacetime where we have agency as actors in this play to create our own realities within the limits of the stage on which we play. In very little time, we have realized that this stage is much larger and stranger and more mysterious than we had the ability to conceive or imagine. Who will we be and what will we do with this one wild life?

Light and shadow

Both light and shadow form our sense of reality. The shadows, however, do not overwhelm the light. The shadow of death may loom large in our imaginations, but life is weaving a fabric of relationships that shines brighter than the limits of one body. Integrity, intention, intuition, and imagination are shuttles in the loom of reality that are weaving the experience of interbeing. It is a dance of light, and the play’s the thing.
