Our fragile world is becoming increasingly fractured, even though nature itself persists in its wholeness of being. How did the human community get undone? What can we learn from nature and the story of the cosmos that can set us on a new course of future life? Here we will explore the inner—outer dimensions of the cosmic story and the inner—outer dimensions of human life. During this contemplative weekend, our focus will be on the rise of integral consciousness and unified space.
