Watch the recording:

Recent weeks in the United States have seen deepening violence and the erosion of democracy and basic rights. This is the fruition of strategy long in the making and, unfortunately, it’s a trend likely to worsen. Of course, hazardous abuses of power are not unique to the U.S., and today’s events raise enduring questions. How can we embody our values and soul’s calling through the specific demands of our historical moment?

This teaching will speak to the imaginary separations between spiritual practice, culture and systems of governance. We’ll consider ways to anchor in an ethic of authentic service and stay engaged in work for cultural wellness over the long arc of time. The hour will include an experiential practice and Q&A.

May we bend, grieve and adapt to avoid shattering and to stay in service to life.
