Nathan Oliveira: Fundamentals
In this beautiful interview, renowned painter Nathan Oliveira muses about a lifetime of art making, "Something comes to life that doesn't normally come to life, but it's something rather rare because you can paint, and keep putting material on and on and on, and nothing can happen.

The New and Ancient Story of Interbeing
"Why does the sun shine? A random result of coalescing gases igniting nuclear fusion? Or is it in order to give its light and warmth to Life? Why does the rain fall? Is it the senseless product of blind chemical processes of evaporation and condensation? Or is it to water life? Why do you seek to pour forth your song? Is it to show off your genetic fitness to attract a mate, or is it to contribute... posted on Feb 06 2019, 2,907 reads

On Defining Spirit
"What then is the spiritual? I find it difficult to define directly. It's much easier to say what it isn't that what it is. For example -- the spiritual is often confused with the moral, but it's not the moral. Morality is concerned with issues of right and wrong. Although often attributed to the "godhead", it actually has a social basis and reflects a social tradition or consensus. What is consid... posted on Feb 04 2019, 3,562 reads


Grief as Deep Activism
No one escapes suffering in this life. Yet we live in a collective denial, deprived of meaningful ways to speak of sorrows and collective practices of releasing grief. Francis Weller walks us to the shore of sorrows and shows us how this ocean ripples through our individual lives, through community, and into the Earth herself.

Ask Where I'm Local
So many times when we introduce ourselves others, or are introduced by someone else, we place a lot of importance on naming where we are from. Often, this where is explained with the name of a country or state or city. But these are not naturally occurring phenomena. Countries, states, and cities are concepts; explaining almost nothing about us. The experiences of our daily lives and the actual ph... posted on Feb 02 2019, 3,032 reads

We Teach Who We Are
If you ask a child what they want to be when they grow up the answer is never "loved" or "happy" or "peaceful." We put a lot of weight on success, on setting goals and reaching them. And we quantify those accomplishments. How much did you get done today? What is your salary? How big is your house? Even our connections today are quantifiable. You have 500 friends on social media. You scroll through... posted on Jan 29 2019, 3,182 reads
