When Culture Works

Heads up! This post is 9 years old. In 2021, I restarted my blog after many years of not writing regularly. See the the new stuff!

My experience in Matrix is that profound experiences can be named and recognized easily, as they happen. There is an attention and awareness and acknowledgement of what is actually happening between people, and its significance.

There is mutual recognition, and cultural (group) recognition, of the meaning of what is happening right before us. It creates a sense of honoring–sacred space.

I think this is a mark of the way this work creates a culture that does what a culture is supposed to do. Which is not in the trappings of how transitions are marked, but rather that their significance is felt and that they are recognized and named.
