2020-10-11 Awakening in a Time of Crisis 65:21
What does our practice look like at a time of multiple crises? We explore the great contemporary need for many of us to deepen in our path of awakening, and deepen in or sustain our ways of responding to the needs of our world. We look at the nature of awakening, both in its traditional and contemporary forms, and ask: How might I bring my practice of awakening up a notch or two? We look at how we can integrate this awakening process with our responsive action, pointing to what we might call a contemporary curriculum for those integrating inner and outer transformation. Following the talk, we have a discussion covering many aspects of our theme of awakening in a time of crisis.
