Slowing Down
This meditative film brings us on a journey of slowing down so that we can understand the rhythms and the circles of life, in order to more fully connect with the big circle, "the slow breathing of the earth." It reminds us to slow the pace of our lives, even for a few minutes at a time, so that we are able to feed the person inside. The wise narrators charge us to be aware of the phases of the mo... posted on Apr 05 2021, 3,187 reads

 

The Only Real Antidote to Fear
"That in love and in life, freedom from fear -- like all species of freedom -- is only possible within the present moment has long been a core teaching of the most ancient Eastern spiritual and philosophical traditions. It is one of the most elemental truths of existence, and one of those most difficult to put into practice as we move through our daily human lives, so habitually inclined toward th... posted on Apr 04 2021, 4,072 reads

 

It Couldn't Be Clearer
"Interrelatedness is one of Brian Swimme's powers of the universe that I have been contemplating. I could have accompanied this particular exploration with any picture I have. Every flower, every leaf, every tree trunk, every mushroom is only here because of a web of relationships. With air, water, fungi, microbes, insects. With their fellow plants, the soil their roots penetrate, the beings growi... posted on Apr 03 2021, 3,214 reads

 

Poems from a Once-Upon-A-Time Inmate
Ra Avis's searing poetry was born from her experiences in incarceration, and her life as a returning citizen.

Ariel Burger: Beyond Words
"My best friend was going to art school, and I was very drawn to that path. But I chose not to follow it, because I wanted to find the all-encompassing discipline. I wouldn't have used those words then, but that was really what it was. I wanted to find the thing that would be the source for art, but also the source of being a person, and the source of meaning--and a response to mortality." Artist ... posted on Apr 01 2021, 1,759 reads

 

Picture a Face
"Your phone rings in the middle of the night. As you reach blindly to answer, do you fear that someone you love has been in an accident? Has suddenly died? For a time, early in my marriage to Jihong, such calls would often wake us. The phone was on Jihong's side of the bed. He'd lift the receiver to his ear and mumble a dazed hello. "Go back to Japan!" a loud male voice would yell, or something wo... posted on Mar 31 2021, 2,733 reads

 

Our Nervous Systems in the Time of COVID
"The light at the end of the COVID tunnel is tenuously appearing yet many of us feel as exhausted as at any time in the past year. Memory problems; short fuses; fractured productivity; sudden drops into despair. Were at once excited and unnerved by the prospect of life opening up again. Clinical psychologist Christine Runyan explains the physiological effects of a year of pandemic and social isol... posted on Mar 30 2021, 8,519 reads

 

Wish You Were Here: Postcards from the Future
"We invited other artists--people who process the world through making--to create their own postcards in the face of the naked truths of climate change. We asked them to join us in a written and visual chorus to the young people dearest to us and to everyone on Earth, now and in the future. You can see what came out here: intimate and urgent messages written for loved ones and for people we will n... posted on Mar 29 2021, 2,918 reads

 

The World's Last Nomadic Peoples
"From Jeroen Toirkens comes 'Nomad' -- a fascinating and strikingly beautiful visual anthropology of the Northern Hemispheres last living nomadic peoples, from Greenland to Turkey. A decade in the making, this multi-continent journey unfolds in 150 black-and-white and full-color photos that reveal what feels like an alternate reality of a life often harsh, sometimes poetic, devoid of many of our m... posted on Mar 28 2021, 3,910 reads

 

Poetry Calls Us To Pause
"It is the simple topic, a commonality that I choose to explore, so when I walk down a street, open a can of soup, view a fading poster on the wall, or imagine what I might write in wet cement, I ask myself what am I noticing and what is my response in the moment." Poet Elizabeth Brule Farrell shares more about her calling, and offers a selection of her wonderful poems here.... posted on Mar 27 2021, 3,485 reads
