An inspiration from this morning’s meditation. I offer it as a heads-up” especially to my elders, but also to others who have expressed interest in Mary Conrow Coelho’s Awakening Universe Emerging Personhood: The Power of Comtemplation in an Evolving Universe
Quakers & the re-emergence of the Divine Awareness at the close of the industrial age:
A study group that looks at the central role of Inspiration in the new society that is emerging as we move away from a civilization powered by carbon fuels
I currently envision this as a workshop/seminar I will offer in July and August, second and fourth Sundays, 9:45 to 10:45, at the Twin Cities Friends Meeting.
It would be open to anyone on a drop-in basis, although presentations will be geared as much as possible to people who have come to the previous sessions.
Overview of seminar
Overview of peak-oil/climate change/Transition Town movement, and the need for spiritual underpinnings.
Intro to Mary Coelho’s Awakening Universe Emerging Personhood (AUEP)
The first two major sections of AUEP, through page 128.
Sections III & IV of AUEP
Section V of AUEP
Summary and Next Steps for moving into a new society, a new relationship to each other and the Earth.
Second, third & fourth thoughts
- I need to remind myself these will be only one-hour sessions
- This will be mostly presentation more than discussion, face-to-face. Hopefully discussion can happen online.
- I believe this will alternate Sundays with hours devoted to Experiment with Light, at the Meetinghouse
- I can’t possibly do justice to the material in this time-frame, but I need to get started with a synthesis of Transition Town and AUEP.
