We are living in times that fill us with dread one moment and offer the possibility of profound growth the next. How do we find our footing in this complexity? In order to answer this question for ourselves personally, it is helpful to understand the larger context of the era we are living in on a collective level. In this class, we will explore the cycles of time that have always guided life on the earth. We will explore the concept of the Yugas from Vedic philosophy and the prophesies and philosophies about the cycles of spiritual evolution from the Mayan, Hopi and other indigenous traditions. We will examine our deepest responses to the ecological, political, and social crises we are confronting and try to discern where they place us within these evolutionary cycles. We will also learn how we can hold both perspectives at once so that we can make informed decisions in navigating the challenges of the current moment with clarity and courage.
This is an online course that is part video and part live online video conference. You will receive links to the videos, which you can watch at your convenience. There will be one video conference meeting where you can ask questions of the teacher and learn from the questions and experiences of the other participants.
