The Truth Hurts, Falsehood Destroys

As we observed over the last year, a post-truth society is a pre-tyranny society. Without truth all liberal systems suffer: science, economics, democracy, and religion. Truth is strong but new technologies and siloed communities threaten to overwhelm truth with conspiracy theories and confirmation bias. Our world is facing an epistemological crisis.

Finding Your True North

How well does your inner GPS guide you to make decisions, large and small? Do you believe in a divinely ordained path for your life, or do you believe we each figure it all out on our own?

Fire Communion: A Transitions Reflection.

We will sit in the liminal transition space of the ending of 2020. There are many things from 2020 that we would like to let go of, personally and nationally. And, many things to look forward to in the New Year. Join us for a time of deep reflection.

Still, Small Voice

When we can sit still long enough, we can often hear what our hearts are telling us. As we honor the Solstice, let us listen to what it and our hearts are telling us.
