We live in an ongoing crisis, in the midst of a struggle for truth and meaning in a world gone wrong. Not simply a clash of civilizations or collapse of culture, but a battle for the Soul of the World and a search for the underlying unity and hidden vitality of life. For, if there is no change at the level of soul, there can be no real change at the level of the common world.
Soul is the light hidden in the darkness and the natural energy of connection that tries to awaken just as things fall apart. Even as fears about the world accumulate and chaos stirs there can be an acceleration of 'calling' as the soul would have each of us find our genuine path and way to contribute to life.
No solitary idea or fixed belief can shift the weight of the world towards a meaningful future; but the accumulated vitality of many souls awakening with lived imagination can become a force for truth and healing in this troubled world. Healing is a revolutionary act and we are here to awaken to the true nature of our own souls and become active agents of ongoing creation.
Join us for an evening of surprising ideas, a soulful and mythological view of current affairs and a resounding collective call to find unity and wholeness in this time of conflict and confusion.
Doors open at 6:00 pm
