Andrew Harvey



Andrew Harvey told us today that with things as insane as they are right now our hope is in combining sacred practice with sacred activism. Sacred practice being prayer, meditation, worship, studying spiritual texts. Sacred activism being identifying the cause that breaks our hearts and doing something to effect change around that cause.

He shook us up. He made us think. He read us poetry by Rumi and played opera and Bach. We meditated until we felt comatose. But in my lethargy tonight there is a new desire to do something good, for myself and the world.
