Never before has the need for sacred activism – active engagement to support world transformation for justice, equity, and peace, from a consciousness of unity and interconnection rather than separation and division – been greater. At the heart of sacred activism lies a profound commitment to remain, in Rumi’s words, a “true human being,” even in inhuman times. In this weekend with Andrew Harvey and Diane Berke, we will explore what it means to be a true human being as well as learn and engage in the essential practices we need to nourish and sustain our humanity through times of challenge and uncertainty.

The practices we will explore in this weekend include

  • Foundational practices to ground in our essential humanity and connect to the deepest levels of support
  • Peace practices to cultivate clarity and calm
  • Heart practices to deepen and extend loving-kindness and compassion to others and ourselves
  • Prayer practices to open to divine guidance and grace
  • Body practices to anchor the archetypal process of transformation into our physical being
