“KIND HEARTS, PEACEFUL MINDS,
Living lives of service in the Anthropocene,
or Human Centered Age
God gave Noah the rainbow sign,
No more water but the fire next time –
You better find a home in the rock, don’t you see.
~From an African-American spiritual
Wind, rain and fire – the earth is changing.
How do we live lives of service in this new world?
What does the perennial philosophy of the ancient
traditions have to offer us?
