I'm joining Service Space because ... i love and believe in everything and everyone involved.
A good day to me is when ... I'm outside, moving, feeling grateful, and thinking new thoughts.
My hero in life is ...the many, many, many people who spread kindness and share
My favorite book is ...Goodness, how would i pick? Right now I'm reading a lot of Christian mystics b/c I'm in the Living School, and I am enjoying those.
One thing I'm grateful for is ... having a body, having senses

His insights coming from his 30-day silence retreat had us all swimming in love, and I joked that I'm booking him to speak after every meditation retreat. :) This was a part of Jubilee Gift: The Course, an invitational 9-month Journey into Money & Belonging for wealth holders, entrepreneurs, and wisdom keepers. Our aim is to break from the economic and financial models we have known, to transmute financial capital into a flow that enables everyone’s gifts, and to build the spiritual ballast we are going to need as the world radically changes shape. His talk was part of this month's session: "Practices & Conditions", which was about about the practices that keep us trained on, and operating from, an open heart.

Where it is safe. Love and kindness, warmth and peace. A welcoming embrace.” One of you wrote to say it is surprising where you do feel Belonging deeply - and also how you don't feel it where you'd think -- "my work colleagues, professional society, family (!)" Together we looked at the land where we live. A few of you learned for the first time who was indigenous to the place you now call home, and one of you shared your tears and a poem you’d wrote years ago, with the line: “The soil of our agrarian roots nourished with the bone ...

It was quite inspiring to see over 1200 people register to join the call, and see overwhelming feedback on how important this call felt for so many. Below are some of the nuggets from the call ... "My mom would always ask me why I traveling all over the world. When I told her that it was to find out who I am, she joked, 'Well, I'll tell you who are.'" :) In this time, we are asking ourselves who we are, and we need to turn to each other to find out. In 1967, of what turned out to be an inflection point of civil rights in America, we had 200 demonstrations. In the last few weeks, we had 4 thousand demonstrations across the globe. We've never seen such a response to racism -- ever. Yet we're facing ... Read Full Story
