A Personal Reflection: Presenting at SAND

A Personal Reflection: Presenting at SAND

"What a joy it was to be part of the Science and Nonduality conference. This year I was honored to be a plenary, mainstage, presenter. Our talk, "A Key to Collective Awakening: Teaching Teens to Inquire" received a standing ovation and generated a great deal of new interest in the work that we do. I was also part of an engaging panel discussion about sacred activism facilitated by Vera de Chalambert with Deborah Johnson, Charles Eisenstein, and Rory McEntee. Wonderful to see space being given for how to embody our experience of oneness in the world, as well as to shed light on what often stands in the way. I was impressed by the amount of heart that infused this years conference and offer many thanks to all those who assisted in making this trip happen!" 

In Peace,

Celebrating Interdependence

Celebrating Interdependence

"If you focus on interdependence rather than independence it is easier to experience love." —Caverly

 

Dear Friend,

On a day in which there’s a strong focus on independence, I offer a loving reminder that it’s possible, instead, to focus on interdependence. To give your attention to our interrelatedness. To our connection. Today, may we remember to turn to love. 

During such divided times, I’ve been focusing on what it means to be a stand for the alternative. My friend and colleague Angel Kyodo Williams was recently interviewed in the CBS special "Beyond Tolerance." I appreciate her work on this front and this 30-minute feature feature is worth watching:

Last week I had the honor of officiating a friend's wedding that was special to me. I'm grateful to live in a time in which two women—or two people of any gender—can marry each other with the legal support of our state and nation. 

This was a hard won battle. There’s much more work to do. May our next step be to focus on interdependence as we give our attention to what lies ahead. May we give our attention to love. 

In Peace,

Caverly

P.S. I invite you to join me on our summer retreat in California from August 1-6. There are only a few spots left.


"Dominator culture has tried to keep us all afraid, to make us choose safety instead of risk, sameness instead of diversity. Moving through that fear, finding out what connects us, revelling in our differences; this is the process that brings us closer, that gives us a world of shared values, of meaningful community.”
—Bell Hooks
