Our Country in Crisis

November 13, 2021 @ 10:00 am 1:00 pm MST

william blake


For the past few years, each November, a group of panelists—Jerome, Jacqueline, and Don—have each presented their current reflections about the dynamic state of our country. This year we will address how the past months have presented each of us, personally, and socially, with a world that is bearing remarkable changes that are intensified by the profound threats of climate change compounded with the COVID 19 pandemic. These forces have tended to plunge us into depths and intensity of grief and bewilderment. This challenges us to re-organize ourselves as well as our relationship to others, our political life, and our planet in the midst of global chaos. The eruptions of psyche tear at us, body and soul, personally and universally. Can we find transformative gifts within these challenges? Can we unveil a step towards relatedness, and emergence of wholeness?
