Into the World
TEACHER: Jeff Warren
THEME: Into the World
MEDITATION: Expand in Space, Ground in Sound
GROUP PRACTICE: Activate 6: Finding the Golden Thread
The poet William Stafford (“ for it is important that awake people be awake”) used to talk about finding the golden thread in a poem, in a moment, in a life – the thread of meaning, the felt tug of it in your belly, or the vision of it swimming out from the canvas in front of you. That’s what we’re looking for today, the golden thread in each of the seven initiatives / themes of the past month, themes that have themselves bubbled to the surface from our collective in-seeing: community building, mental health, housing, consciousness and healing, self-discovery, women’s empowerment, and animal rights. What can be distilled from the wide range of ideas and insights that have been expressed? What might it mean for us personally, and how might some of this be realistically taken into the world?
