Finding Healing in the Midst of Chaos

We have heard this all before - a woman stepping forward to tell her story of being sexually assaulted and a powerful man denying the allegations as other men question the integrity of the survivor. At a time when America seems to be wrestling with so many of its own inner demons and with its ugly history of unresolved trauma - this is a complex story for both men and women. The relentlessness with which these kinds of stories keep coming at us is exhausting — and yet it is a precious gift because we are being forced to look at something we have all colluded unconsciously to keep hidden.

Saying Yes to a New Kind of Collaboration

Reaching Beyond No By Kay Lindahl and Kathe Schaaf When order crumbles, mystery arises. – John Shea in Stories of God (2007) We are living in a remarkable time for humanity. The old order is indeed crumbling around us.

An Open Letter to the Women Running in the 2018 Midterm Elections: Leading From Your Deepest Wisdom

Wow. We are awed that there are so many of you and that you are so diverse. We are excited and relieved to see that you are already doing politics differently We feel a sense of urgency now to move beyond old boundaries of political, religious or ideological identity and discover a better way forward together. Your candidacy gives you the opportunity to break out of old paradigms and breathe fresh air into our democratic process. Unfortunately, ‘politics as usual’ does not invite - or even allow - the kind of wisdom we need at this time. The old game is driven by power, money and fear. Imagine the impact if we could expect our political leaders to tell the truth, to be kind and curious and to rebuild our democracy by listening - not just to one another but also to their own inner wisdom and moral guidance.
