Jacob Needleman: I Am Not I
Among the great questions of the human heart, none is more central than the question, "Who am I?" And among the great answers of the human spirit, none is more central than the experience of "I Am." In fact, in the course of an intensely lived human life--a normal human life filled with the search for Truth--this question and this answer eventually run parallel to each other, coming closer and clo... posted on Mar 25 2019, 2,026 reads

 

Mary Oliver: Poet of Awe
Mary Oliver was in a class by herself. Distinguished with a Pulitzer Prize and a National Book Award, she was viewed with suspicion by literary critics for her status as a kind of rock star poet. For those of us who read her like a daily liturgy, her name is synonymous with other such essential words: mystery, wild, awe, terror, devotion, gratitude, grace. All of them come alive in her simple poem... posted on Mar 24 2019, 6,611 reads

Why Shadows Were Invented
In 'From These Wilds Beyond Our Fences,' Bayo Akomolafe points out that when Seventeenth-century physicist Francesco Grimaldi directed a focused ray of sunlight in a dark room, managing the ray so that it struck a thin rod and produced a shadow on a screen, he proved that light behaves in unexpected ways. In fact, light is only one side of a whole,like yin and yang. Thus "darkness is not the absen... posted on Mar 21 2019, 2,561 reads

 

Holding Circles of Healing
"In 2017, we released our labor of love film, "TeachMeToBeWILD: A Story of Hurt Children and their Animal Healers".
