We live in a time characterized by convergences of many kinds, giving our civilization a threshold of significant climaxes and challenges. These outer forces of intense change are in direct alignment with inner capacities we are yet to acknowledge and live from. It is my hope that this session will allow us to contemplate the rich human and planetary histories we have inherited. The intention here is to consider how we can become aware of our true legacies, step into the realities of our deepest belonging and act from conscience as the prerequisite virtue to initiate our age, the age of humanity.
