Evolutionary Consciousness and the Human Spirit

April 1, 2020 @ 11:45 am - 1:30 pm

In these two presentations, we will take a long loving look at who the human species is and who we can need to become in this 21st century as the Universe evolves. Our intent in the presentations and conversations is to awaken our consciousness more fully to all that humankind is.

March 18, 2020     Part 1    Who Is This Species Named Homo Sapiens?

We will look anew at how the emergence of Homo Sapiens two hundred thousand years ago was a bright, celebrative moment in the evolutionary process. Though you may have done this many times, we will open our eyes today to the awareness of humanity as a beautiful creation in the Universe, as an integral part of the cosmos, as, first of all, beings in relationship, as beings with a capacity to know, live, love and create. Our species is a significant presence in the web of life.

April 1, 2020     Part 2   Who Are Humans in the “Right Now” in the Life of the Universe?

This presentation will explore some noticings of where the human species is right now, what the place of humankind is and what will sustain our kind in the movement forward. Joanna Macy names where humankind is right now with these words, “Now, in this very time, these three rivers—anguish for the world, scientific breakthroughs and ancestral teachings flow together…” The power of evolving consciousness continues to awaken us to what it means to be alive on a living planet in this 21st century.
