Matthew Fox, Kathlyn Hendricks, Lynne McTaggart and other pioneers in the consciousness field will be speaking at The Creative Field Conference at Sunrise Ranch, Sept. 15-18. The purpose of this event is to bring together practical visionaries, regardless of faith, for networking, workshops and inspiration.

This conference has been inspired by The Creative Field Project, a Sunrise Ranch initiative whose goal is to help ignite a critical mass of intention and to offer tools, strategies and networking to encourage it. The conference will tap into this existing field of collective awareness and energy (the “creative field”) and bring together a global network of people personally committed to the evolution of consciousness.

Join us at the keynotes and workshops as we explore the creative field and collaborative approaches to collective and emotional intelligence.

Creative Field Conference Program

Thursday, September 15th 7:30 – 9:30 p.m.
Evening Lecture with Katie Hendricks

Going Beyond, Into The Field

When we reveal and get real, we open energetic gates that allow us to experience our expanded field of consciousness directly and tangibly. By bringing consciousness, breath and movement to focus on what’s emerging, personal stories dissolve into purpose, and purpose unites us with the field of consciousness that holds us all. Katie will be sharing the discoveries, intentions and practices that have fueled an experience of unity and expansion over the last forty years.


“Beyond our ideas of right-doing and wrong-doing, there is a field.  I’ll meet you there.”  ~ Rumi

Morning Workshop with Katie Hendricks


Harmony: Igniting and Uniting The Field

Imagine interacting and learning, using authenticity and love as navigation tools rather than concepts. Imagine harmony, rather than a spiritual bypass or a narrow tunnel to the light, bringing about full resonance and easy moment-by-moment choice. As we are fully present with ourselves and others, we magnify our energetic choices and manifestation abilities. We literally attune with each other, moving from opposition and conflict to synergy and collaboration. We may be ready for harmony’s power to bring about deep partnership. We may be emerging from the fear trance of the last many years that had slowed our collective ability to respond effectively to possibilities and challenges. Our exploration together will weave our own consciousness with music and movement to create a living template for co-creativity that we can each grow into day-by-day.

Friday, September 16th 2 – 6 p.m.
Afternoon Workshop with Maryse Barak


Listening to Ignite the Human Mind

The quality of everything we do depends on the quality of the thinking we do first. The greatest gift we can offer each other is the framework in which to think for ourselves.
~ Nancy Kline

How do we create an environment to enable our best thinking?

This workshop answers this essential question through the learning and practice of the “Ten Components of the Thinking Environment” created by Nancy Kline.

You will experience and practice this dynamic and dependable framework, learning how to develop your listening capability as the essential tool in the creation of a Thinking Environment. Practicing the Ten Components enables people to think for themselves with rigor, imagination, courage and grace.

We will be working in pairs and small groups, deepening the quality of our attention in order to provide “a creative field” for excellent and courageous thinking. This is simple yet rigorous and demands of each one of us the capacity to demonstrate catalytic interest.

Friday, September 16th 7:30 – 9:30 p.m.
Evening Lecture with Matthew Fox


Eight Steps in Ushering in the Next Stage of Our Evolutionary Consciousness

Matthew Fox

In our times of planetary communication and planetary degradation, what concrete steps can we take as a species to awaken and develop our potential for expanded consciousness, and thus better our odds of survival and of flourishing with other species on this beautiful planet? Matthew will address eight such steps that range from developing new rituals to reinventing education and work, to reintegrating science and mysticism and more.

Igniting the next phase in consciousness

David and Andrea are co-developers of The Creative Field Project, which inspired this conference. The focus of the CF Project is to engender deep discussion, exploring topics that enhance or that get in the way of our spiritual development. We will continue the exploration as we look at what it takes to change the paradigm in which we live, so we can move forward in our spiritual development. We will consider these topics in a variety of formats, including dialogue, writing, small groups, music, and movement exercises.

Morning Workshop with Lynne McTaggart via Live Streaming Video

The Bond: Connecting Through the Space Between Us

Competition, assumed to be the most fundamental of human urges, forms the basis of our society, our economy, and most of our relationships. But according to award-winning author Lynne McTaggart and her latest book, The Bond, we are living a lie. All the crises we face today, including the financial recession, have occurred precisely because the lives we’ve chosen to lead are not consistent with our truest nature as givers and sharers.

Pulling together a vast array of cutting-edge scientific discovery, Lynne demonstrates that all living things succeed and prosper only when they see themselves as part of a greater whole and fully embrace the relationship itself. The Bond.

Lynne offers unique information about how to retrain ourselves to see the world from a more holistic perspective, to enjoy more cooperative relationships, to enjoy more united social groups, and to discover a new and authentic purpose.
