We will also discuss our goals for the coming years during our December solstice livestream – please join us December 21st, 8am PST.
The global environmental and social challenges we face today are daunting, and they demand a response at a scale appropriate to the problem. Join us as we build a spiritual movement based in the principles of reverence for the living world, interdependence and loving-kindness: agaya and ubuntu.
This video describes some of the science supporting ubuntu. This is a talk by Tom Chi at TEDxTaipei, who never uses the term ubuntu. Nonetheless, what he describes is the underpinnings of ubuntu in physics, cosmology, chemistry, biology, and neuroscience.
Our guided meditation featured a message of global wellness, joy and loving-kindness for all beings. Before and after the meditation, there was conversation with our participants. We started by recognizing our gratitude in agaya. Then we talked about what’s up for each of us with this coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic crisis, to honor the struggles of this strange time – what is difficult, what is painful, what is scary right now. After an explanation of the meaning of the Equinox in Novasutras, we Called the Corners and began the meditation. Afterward, we reflected on what we had just learned and experienced, and what the current crisis is teaching us, and then talked about how to move forward in ubuntu and agaya.
