We most often associate spiritual practice with inner work and we engage meditation as a path of personal growth and development. While the personal level is an important foundation, the next level is to bring our practice to the interpersonal realm. Cultivating deep presence and awareness in relation with others is a "social contemplation" that reveals the truth of our deep interconnectedness with all of life. Uncovering and illuminating the interconnected web of our human "data network" brings a higher level of coherence and intelligence in the collective body. This opens up the potential for healing the fragmentation in our world and liberates our capacity to respond creatively and whole-heartedly to the immense collective challenges we are facing.
