I just got off the phone with a dear friend who spoke truthfully and elegantly of what we are facing now. Everything is in the balance:
the physical, spiritual, and financial health and wellbeing of ourselves, our democracy, the planet, human civilization. The coming week looms large with far-reaching political decisions that will be made for good or bad.
For the Fall Quarter of 2020, the Dromenon Program provided a space to hold three high intentions:
One, to strengthen personal resolve, resilience, and creativity.
Two, to generate community energy to help sustain the field of wellbeing of the world.
Three, to discern appropriate actions to help safeguard the health of democracy.
Practical matters (energy, budget, time, adequate staffing, etc) require a delay of at least a week in the Winter 2021 Dromenon Program. Meanwhile, The Lady inspired me to offer “no-frills” Dromenon Walks on the critical days Jan 4, 5, and 6 at 12 noon PST, for those same three high intentions listed above.
No-frills means just you and me – simply walking the dromenon using finger labyrinths and sharing afterward. (Volunteer frills will be accepted, of course, just not scripted.)
If you choose to join me for these three walks, register in advance as always. The same registration will be good for all three days. No charge; any donations will be applied toward the Winter 2021 program.
If the schedule doesn’t work for you, please do your own walk alone or organize with others, abiding by the pandemic instructions.
