Red White & Blind Meets Spiral Dynamics

I’ll be presenting tomorrow to a global group studying a new evolutionary model.

I don’t usually post my podcast or conference appearances here on my blog, but this one tomorrow will be special and participatory, and I thought it might be of interest.

Also, for those of you not in the US, or not in the Pacific timezone, this is an opportunity to join an RW&B event at an earlier time than I’m usually available—7 a.m.! That translates to 10 a.m. on the east coast and a reasonable 3 p.m. in London.

What is Spiral Dynamics Theory? The Only Guide You Need

Spiral Dynamics is a fascinating model depicting the evolutionary development of individuals, organizations, and societies. Rather than the antiquated notion of a straight line of progress, Spiral Dynamics portrays evolution as a cyclical phenomenon in which humans and organizations grow and incorporate higher skills and attributes while continuously reintegrating many lower skills and attributes.

I’m certainly no expert on Spiral Dynamics. I have only a superficial knowledge of the concepts and model at this point, and I look forward to learning and to a lively conversation. I see ways in which the New Enlightenment—which I observe unfolding today through the broadening distribution of knowledge and truth—is inspiring humanity to new levels of potential and possibility.

What could be in store for us next?

Spiral Dynamics Integral Live
Join us on Saturday, October 14th, 2023
Topic: Presentation by author Tony Brasunas — Exploring Media Bias on the Spiral

Come join us! All are welcome. Zoom link is posted below.

Why were the sordid deeds of Jeffrey Epstein concealed for two decades? Why was the origin of COVID-19 suppressed in the corporate news? Why are social media sites silencing scientists, scholars, journalists, and doctors?

Red White & Blind is a censored journalist’s story and a deep dive into the mechanisms of the American media. Through riveting exposés, Tony Brasunas reveals the insidious use of disinformation and social media censorship in America. Tony will share historical insights gathered while writing his book as well as an optimistic path through these polarized times that new modes of information exchange enable. We are already in the early phases of a New Enlightenment, Brasunas posits, which is drawing humanity into the higher levels of the SDi. 

After the presentation, we will open the discussion to the group.

The link to join is below. See you there!

Online Book Release: Feb 7!

The launch of Red White & Blind at Aqus Cafe was a peak experience of my life. It was so much more than I’d envisioned.

The rain was coming down in sheets outside, and it was a beautiful respite in the cozy confines of the cafe. I expected 20 people and then 60 showed up. The place was packed. It went silent as I shared my gratitude and read the passages I’d selected. That was wonderful. But it was the discussions that occurred after I read from the book that moved me most. Each question was deeper than the last.

It’s clear that many, many of us have felt stranded or abandoned by the dominant media narratives that purport to tell us what is happening in our world. Even more of us have lost connection with friends or family because of the polarized media landscape.

We talked about the problems, the narratives, and the lies. We talked about the possibilities too, the goals of Red White & Blind: media consciousness, a balanced media diet, and connecting with each other.

I’ve been trying to piece together photos and video to do the event justice and share it with you, but I don’t have the time or expertise to do it.

So I’m going to do something else. I’m going to do it again, this time online. As several of you suggested, I will host an Online Book Release and Conversation. I will share Red White & Blind with those of you who weren’t able to make it to Petaluma.

I would be delighted if you would participate. I would be honored if you might contribute your presence and thoughts to this book release.

Please join the conversation if you feel inspired.

Red White & Blind
