Two Ways to Look More Deeply Into Mystical Wisdom

I think you all must be aware that this country and the world are now entering an extremely dangerous phase in Kali’s great dance of destruction and recreation.

My response to this as all who have been following my work know is to align myself ever more deeply with the passion for sacred activism and the great testimony of the evolutionary mystics that an extreme dark night can become the birth canal for a wiser, more embodied divine humanity.

In the spirit of this alignment I am delighted to mention again what I know will be a most inspiring weekend with Linda Tucker, the protector of the White Lions in South Africa and the creator of the Global White Lions Protection Trust.

Her amazing work and example have been an inspiration for me for years and all those who come to the weekend will be fed her vision of LionHearted Leadership™ that springs from the heart of her own practice and that of the ancient but still wonderfully alive African shamanic tradition.

Three Ways to Strengthen Your Spiritual Backbone

Devastating fires are raging across the states and the world, the news from climate scientists is alarmingly dire, the chances of America becoming fascist expand with every atrocious lie and dark-hearted destruction of the laws that have kept us safe and continuing to hone our democracy. I could go on, but you get the point.

If you don’t believe that fascism can take over America, please watch this 10-minute video from Tim Snyder, the author of the brilliant On Tyranny.  Then take a few minutes and read about the alarming new report from the IPCC (read the actual report here or watch the video) on the growing urgency for the world to deal with climate change.   

The apocalypse is here and everyone who is half awake knows it. I have known that this would come for 20 years and I have known too what my job was: to keep telling the truth even when I was derided and marginalized and to keep offering humanity grounded and sane tools to deal with an unprecedented...
