An incubator and accelerator for evolutionary initiatives.
The Phoenix Institute is a collaborative initiative to help rediscover, invent, steward, and amplify the tools, tactics, and techniques that help revitalize and reorient a more holistic, generative culture.
Exploring novel psychotechnologies and stewarding ecologies of practices, the Institute is the creative engine for paradigm-shifting projects.
“Where something becomes extremely difficult and unbearable, there we also stand already quite near its transformation.” — Rainer Maria Rilke
The name of the infinite game here is collaboration over competition.
Competition is fundamentally rooted in a scarcity mindset, isolated and disconnected from the self-evident abundance that is present in each moment of conscious experience, and provided freely from the Natural World and deep fabric of reality.
No man is an island unto themselves.
Fractalling upwards, no organization exists in separation.
No one owns the noosphere.
Everything in existence is a collaborative effort, and this spirit of Sacred Collaboration is a foundational pillar of Phoenix Culture.
As such, the Institute exists to inspire and assist in these efforts of collaboration, providing the resources, allies, and expertise to help birth new cultural initiatives, generative conscious tsunamis of movements, and provide the generative containers required to build projects into escape velocity from the realm of ideas and plant them firmly in the fabric of shared existence.
Alongside this, the Institute is the open-sourcing arm of Phoenix Culture. Ensuring the ideas, protocols, platforms, and efforts of Phoenix Culture are made clear and available to those who seek and stand to benefit from them.
All of the blueprints, ideas, initiatives, efforts, frameworks, protocols, processes, failures, and efforts of Phoenix Culture will be made available to the public in the spirit of Radical Transparency. This is the domain of the Institute.
This is the realm of generative collaboration.
This is the process of Deep Collaboration across Self, Others, and World.
The first instantiation of this is the Magnum Opus of Phoenix Culture, and ongoing and evolving document outlining the deep philosophy and core operating principles of the manifestations and embodiments of Phoenix Culture.
As a collaborative document, this is open and available to all for comments, feedback, input, and ideas.
The Phoenix Institute has or is currently partnered with and helping steward a number of generative projects emerging in the new cultural frequency:
- Apotheosis Retreat
- Strange Love Cafe
