Doing the “Impossible”
It’s like you’ve been sent on a mission impossible.
Living on this earth has never been easy. The Buddha famously taught that “life is suffering,” and that the way out was to get enlightened. That alone was challenging.
But the Buddha lived 2500 years ago… before email, cell phones, airplanes, television, computers, global terrorism, environmental disasters, economic recessions, and the expectation that you be a “peak performer”, a “super-mom” or just plain “super”.
Now it’s a whole new story — not only do we suffer, get sick, and die, like other humans throughout history—but we’re doing so in a world that’s seriously out of whack. We face stresses and demands—despite our amazing comforts and opportunities—that the Buddha never dreamed of, beyond our age-old human condition.
Moreover, we can’t go off to the forest for 20 years to work on ourselves. Our spiritual practice needs to occur IN this world—with our families, at our work—and in relation to all the world’s problems.
That’s our mission. But it’s not impossible….
The Changing Landscape of Spiritual Practice
The standard view of spiritual practice is that it involves meditating, praying, loving your neighbor, and so on. And that’s all absolutely true… and always will be. But spirituality must mean even more than that now.
Albert Einstein famously said, “We cannot solve our problems with the same level of thinking that created them.”
The message is crystal clear. We—as a society, as a culture, and as individuals—need to transform our consciousness, change our frequency, up our game, be the future that we want, and that the world desperately needs. These can’t just be empty slogans…
Just as we must awaken to the timeless truths of love, God, Spirit, compassion, and peace, we must also go beyond awakening to embody those truths in an embodied, engaged, evolving spirituality that is true to who we are, here and now — and that can empower us to co-create a sustainable human future.
Exactly what that “evolving spirituality” looks like—and how to really live it—is what we’ll be exploring in this groundbreaking series.
The Most Important Conversation of Our Time
How can a living spirituality enable human beings to create more enlightened responses to our common problems?
There is no more important conversation—or commitment to action—in the world today.
Join us as we engage with some of the most dynamic contemporary spiritual teachers in this series of dialogues. Each teacher will bring a distinct, profound, and catalytic perspective to the Big Conversation. Each has drunk deeply from the wisdom of the past, and is also embodying their wisdom in a new way, freshly attuned to the challenges of our moment.
Participation is Free
There is no cost to participate in this live, interactive event. Thanks to our generous sponsors, and to all the luminaries who have volunteered their time, we are able to offer this event to you for FREE.
All you need is a telephone or a computer to participate and explore:
- How to turn the fast pace of life into a profound practice to experience clarity, purpose, and yes, inner peace.
- How to find community in our fragmented, virtual world and get the support you need.
- What neuroscience can teach us about skillful, effective (and efficient!) personal practice, and how you can apply this research in your everyday life.
- How to question our inherited spiritual wisdom, and at the same time rescue the light of that wisdom, like precious jewels, from being dimmed down and fragmented.
- How you can help catalyze the transformation of our culture as well as your own consciousness.
We’re committed to making each teleseminar as interactive as possible. Each week, you’ll be able to ask questions and interact with these teachers.
