Why a New California?

I have had the good fortune, recently, of considering my own social and spiritual values in an effort to make sense of who I am in relation to the dissolution of the country that I have learned to call home. That country is USA. It has espoused such high values and manages to have so much trouble living up to those values within it’s own ‘four walls’, as well as abroad.

Standing Rock tribal community

I’ve been up to something these last few weeks that I feel a need to share more broadly, more overtly. I’ve been praying… with sound, with people. In retrospect, and for those that know me, this is probably less of a surprise than it seems to be for me. So let me say more about my journey with it and why I think you should come join us.

Sound Groves – come sing for peace

When we consider the trees as our sacred family, we can talk, listen, feel, touch and sing as one.Welcome – at this time it is important that we can come together to weave our voices in solidarity and powerful love for humanity’s health, for the planet’s health, especially including water and trees right now, and for our shared love. We need to enter peace. And this is something we can only find within ourselves, together.

It’s to do with our whole complex organization around life and business, business and creativity, business as a spiritual path that is strengthened by social justice (what?) and measured by everybody’s – yes everybody’s – joy.  I just said business three times in one sentence. That’s new. And I just completed a semester of teaching Creativity & Innovation for business, so I’m all fired up with the potential for positive change!

Why Shouldn’t We Blow Up Mountains??

Dear Fellow Beings,

If I live in California, why should I care if someone blows up a mountain in New York, just to mine it? It shouldn’t bother me, right?

I was watching a tv show, many moons ago, and wondered how the person being interviewed was going to answer this very question. The show was focused on following the day of a land caretaker. She was in some part of North America, watching over a watershed and once a week she would be flown over hundreds of acres of mountainous land to check on its state of health. She had been doing it for years. And so here, in this intimate moment on her front porch, the interviewer asked the big question… “why should I care?”
