Ours is a time of great upheaval. Overlapping social, political and environmental crises are destabilizing us all at a rapid pace. Many of us are doing our all to increase our civic response, voice our unrest and challenge systems that keep us separate from ourselves and one another.
The modes of being that are required to maintain a life of sacred presence in this time of unrest – silence, stillness, deep listening and extended time in the natural world – are most often the least prioritized or available. We need skilled guides in the art of sacred and contemplative inquiry. We need to allow ourselves the time required to explore and be cared for by the inner dimensions. And we need inclusive community for all of this.
