Together We Rise

experiments in vibrational activism

Tuesdays via Zoom | 8:30 to 9 AM 

May Series: 17, 24, and 31    

WHAT IS VIBRATIONAL ACTIVISM? We wanted to know what would happen if a small group of people came together with a shared intention to align with the vibration of peace and contribute that peace to our world. 

Every week we gather as “friends and strangers” for a meditative journey into imagined landscapes, where we allow the natural world to guide and support our aim.

Although we may never know how our experiments ripple through the world, we can witness them ripples through our own lives. Join us!

Over the carnage rose a prophetic voice,
"Be not disheartened, affection shall solve 
the problems of freedom yet."

If America Came True

a Vision of Planetary Culture for the 21st Century

Monday May 30th | 1pm to 5pm 

(Memorial Day)

  

Let’s celebrate the 203rd birthday of one of America’s major prophetic voices with a festive reading of his epic 52-part poem, “The Compassionators” (aka “Song of Myself”)—and give our humanity a pep talk!

There will be opportunities during the reading to draw and paint, to dance and make music, or simply stretch out and enjoy Whitman’s wild words and images in creative community. Everyone is invited to take a turn reading. This epic poem party could last up to 5 hours, including breaks for food and play. 

 

We’ll gather on the grass and grand porch of The Gladstone. You are welcome to come for all or part of this improvisational afternoon.

Bring your mind, heart, and soul…and don’t forget your body electric! Bring a lawn chair or blanket. Bring friends. Bring food and drink to share!

*Our Pandemic Response* We see the potential of viral transmission as part of a global "wake up call" to deepen our individual and collective relationship to the Mystery of Life, which we cannot control or manage. Instead, we can learn to listen subtly, follow its lead, and dance with it more gracefully. Wbelieve it is the right of every individual to govern their own body. We believe it is the responsibility of every individual to care for the collective body of Earth. Therefore, we request that you tend to your body as you see fit, and respect the bodies of others by NOT ATTENDING if you know or suspect that your body may be dealing with a possible infection. We will do the same. We think that this level of mutual self-responsibility, rather than one-size-fits-all mandates, is what will build the mutual respect and trust needed to enjoyably gather together again!  

 

Cold weather gatherings will be held indoors and limited to 8 people. As an additional measure of care, we will employ air filters to keep air circulating.
