"We are here to awaken from the illusion of separateness," says Thich Naht Hahn.  In a culture hell bent on separateness, canceling, disassociation, shaming, and division, no wonder we are having such a hard time.  In this episode, I'd like to begin a conversation about the Third Way, a way that emerges between the poles.  I hope you hear something that helps.  Thanks for all your support. Enjoy

Crisis means "turning point," an opportunity, as much as a struggle.  This week I discuss practical ways of unplugging from the machine, finding some deeper source, which is needed now more than ever.  "What if you gain the whole world and forfeit your soul?" How do we return to what matters in an age that is deciding for us, what to think, what to buy, what to protest, what to post, what to care about, what to promote, what flag we should fly, and who we should be.  Time for a Sabbath from all this nonsense.

Just holding the question, "what really matters," seems to be more important right now than quick answers.   This week is about that question, as well as the gifts of silence, severance and solitude.  I also turn to some voices of wisdom, Merton, Berry and Rilke, who have lived through a few things, and still their words ring true. This time period is nothing short of a global invitation to change, but how and when and at what cost all seem to be unanswered.  I hope you hear a few hints and guesses which inspire and challenge.  Stay safe, stay smart, be courageous.

Does anger have anything to teach us in a world with so much violence and suffering?  Join me this week for an exploration around anger.  I'll weave threads from David Whyte, Bill Plotkin and Joanna Macy, plus share a few personal stories about my own relationship with anger.  Enjoy!  Or get pissed off.
