Emergence is an evolving art, ceremonial and facilitation practice led by Fern Smith and Philip Ralph

We consciously seek to embody the values we treasure in the hope that a more creative, caring and compassionate planet might be our next evolution.

Emergence has nurtured and created spaces for dialogue, inspiration and change since 2010.

We make art, and guide transformative processes with individuals and groups.

Space for Connection
RETREATS & Rites of Passage

Deep work for the inner realms of mind, soul, spirit, personal transformation and healing utilising nature-based ceremony and ritual.

Time for Change
Workshops & Facilitation

Deep awareness work for the outer realms, group and organisational change, conflict resolution and community-building utilising creative and cutting-edge group facilitation processes.

The Re-enchantment Project
Artwork & Events

Practising the Art of Living with pop-up, participatory projects with the guiding principle that ‘everyone is an artist’.

The world is changing.
How can we change with it?

Our vision for Emergence is to support the transformation we need to make in order to meet the challenges ahead of us.
