Reminder: June Solstice Capra Course Alumni Gathering:
A Systemic Perspective on the War in Ukraine
Tuesday June 21st, 2022
9 AM – 10:15 AM PDT // 4 PM – 5:15 PM UCT
Link: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/87977165927?pwd=cTEwUjU2NEhBcE5CbUNIS0RlamxhUT09

For our June Solstice Capra Course Alumni Gathering Fritjof would like to offer some comments from a systemic perspective on the great tragedy that we are witnessing in Ukraine. Unfortunately, most of our political leaders and most of the media seem to be unable to adopt such a systemic view. But with all our global networks, activist communities, and endless channels of communication, we hope to use this time together to explore and spread our systemic perspective and convince leaders in politics, business, and in the global civil society to give peace a chance.

Looking forward to seeing you all there!

Shovel Worthy, Not Just Shovel Ready

Wise use of the infrastructure funding in rural SW America

For the first time in two generations, the U.S. Federal government is finally funding the long-overdue bill to fix America’s D-rated infrastructure.

The Issue: This level of extreme government funding is new, so we could spend billions with too little result. Spending strategies must address immediate infrastructure needs and account for future vulnerabilities in a changing climate and an emerging digital economy.

Rural SW America: Rural communities are often in remote areas at the end of the power lines, vulnerable to upstream grid disruptions, with inadequate broadband and water resources. The issues are most severe in the drought and heat-impacted rural American Southwest.

Join LightWorks at Arizona State University and the Security and Sustainability Forum in a 90-minute discussion of challenges and strategies for federal and state infrastructure spending combined with private finance for long-term, sustainable progress toward rural community utility and public welfare goals.

The panel includes leaders from the Water Finance Exchange, CoBank, ASU’s Kyl Center, and the National Cooperative Business Association.

Friday July 22nd

July 22nd, 1:00 PM – 2:30 PM (PST)

At the Threshold: Grief, Initiation, and Transformation

Duane and Coleen Elgin will engage Francis Weller in a spirited and searching conversation based on his work as a psychotherapist and soul activist. Francis is also the author of the powerful preface for the second edition of Duane’s book, Choosing Earth. The title of his preface describes what we focus on in this impactful conversation: “At the Threshold: Grief, Initiation, and Transformation.” You can download the full book with preface for free here.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Friday July 29th

July 29th 9:00 AM – 10:30 AM (PST)

Lessons from the Front Lines – Life, Loss, and Healing

Duane and Coleen are delighted to have a conversation with Ladybird Morgan. In addition to more than 20+ years working in hospice and palliative medicine, Ladybird has a wealth of experience dealing with trauma, mental health, and the painful repercussions of sexual violence.

We’ll explore a variety of themes including: front line workers shouldering weight within systems breakdown; trauma; end of life/death and dying; what it means to be human; lessons from work in prisons; and psychedelics for healing and transformation.

This online conversation is part of a series that explores the social, psychological and spiritual dimensions of the Great Transition. No one turned away for lack of funds. Please contact us if you need a scholarship.

 

 

 

 

 

Wednesday July 13

July 13th 5:30 – 7:00 pm (PST)

Climate Psychology – What are we learning? What is emerging?

Barbara Easterlin, PhD, is one of the key founders of the Climate Psychology in Therapeutic Practices Certificate program at the California Institute of Integral Studies (which launches fall 2022).

We will explore what Barbara is learning from her teaching and research in this emerging field. Specific topics include working with eco-anxiety and eco-dread, speaking effectively with children and young adults, and understanding the long-term stress of living with the reality of profound climate changes.

 

 

 

 

Wednesday July 20

July 20th 5:30 – 7:00pm (PST)

Contributing Effectively in Times of Crisis

We are all painfully aware of the many dangers facing our world, and this awareness naturally calls forth a desire to contribute. Effective contributions need to be multidimensional, encouraging not only outer social change but also fostering both individual and collective psychological healing and maturation. The key questions for each of us then become, “What can I do?”  In this workshop, participants will use multiple methods—including guiding principles, guided meditations, visualization, reflection, and dialogue—to explore these questions and to support people in discovery of their own unique, strategic contributions.

This workshop will be led by Roger Walsh MD, PhD, DHL, a University of California professor of psychiatry, philosophy, and anthropology, and a lama in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition.  He is the author of Essential Spirituality: The Seven Central Practices, and other books.

Humanity is at a tipping point.

What we choose to do next will impact the future of this world on a global scale.

But this choice is not something that we can pass off onto other people…

Change—real change—begins right here, with us.

When we think about what it takes to “change the world”, it’s tempting to see it as something “bigger” than ourselves.

But the truth is, we change the world by changing ourselves.

What humanity needs right now isn’t more big ideas, big technology, or big innovations—what we need is more people waking up to the simple truth that we all have the ability to transform our own lives…

And it starts at the source.

 

Register now

 

Tapping the Source is a cutting-edge summit bringing together some of our world’s top leaders in the scientific and spirituality communities.

This is a not-for-profit event designed to support humanity in this make-or-break time.

Together, our speakers will share the truth behind

  • What is the source that makes up all of life and…
  • How we can tap into that energy to transform our lives.

You’ll learn from a diverse panel of scientific experts and spiritual masters who have all come to the same conclusion: that there is a source of all life – and every person has the ability to access that source to change reality.
