Change and/or be changed. Humanity has cast itself and the biosphere into a life-defining initiatory cycle. Healing crises demand immediate, effective tools and strategies for adaptive change. How individuals and communities participate in this do-and-die paradox decides existential outcomes. How we relate to the past determines how we show up in the present.
If we are to map out healthier, more equitable futures it both reassures and invigorates to focus on patterns of capacity rather than incapacitating behaviours. Previous attempts and failures however, when witnessed by the heart’s intelligence, offer creative insights to free up the vital energy needed to realize greater potentials. We become the change needed as new paths open before us. Revelling with mutual meaning and purpose, we rediscover the reciprocity of life. These sorrows and joys remind us we belong.
