“The Sailor Cannot See the North”: The Psychospiritual Dilemma of Our Time

November 16, 2012 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Friday Talk:

“The sailor cannot see the north / but knows the needle can.”
~ Emily Dickinson

What are the sources of guidance for a thoughtful person in our country amid political fractionation, animosity, divisive ideologies, and numbing distractions—a time in which the individual has an enormous summons to social, psychological, and spiritual integrity?  This presentation will challenge the audience to assume responsibility for a thoughtful, discerned, and experientially verified authority, one which bases itself on respect for others, but also embodies a willingness to show up, to be different, to stand for something real.
