what is asked:
this project asks those of you stirred to engage to wrestle with ‘being needed’, leadership in a troubled time, resilience, village making, connections over ages and geographies, growing support, support support and in what is called for if elderhood is to show up in our midst, learning* and more..
The basic offer;Sept 2019 - Sept 2020
a mixed online and temporary village spaces to grow one another, support the work we do, to sit across ages looking out together at the horizon we share filled with grief and love and to cultivate ‘bearing faithful witness to what is, knowing it could be no different and proceeding as if needed’
The basic plea;
to engage and work hard with others in learning and growing the skills of love and grief and beauty fed actions for communities; our focus is on what is needed by the human, more than human and unseen worlds...together we will wrestle with ‘not knowing’ and, for some of us, with that feeling of ‘wrecked on schedule’ given our times...and to keep engaging, growing, doing and living in service of life nonetheless.
