Hi Theodore, can you please mute?
would love to know which verse she read, thanks!
Lost Joan’s audio
The healthy social life is found,
When in the mirror of each human soul
The community finds its reflection
And when in the community
The virtue of each one is living

Thank you Joan!

Kate, You can share your computer sound on the share screen.
If you send the link we will play it on this end
Ecological Devastation/ Climate Crisis
Militarism/ War Economy
Distorted moral Narrative of Religious Nationalism
All these are underlying issues for raising and educating children and youth in a humanistic space.
AI/Job Automation under Systemic Poverty? Saw the Campaign’s DC forum/chat with Andrew Yang, def awesome
(my computer may crash so keeping cam off)
CATHERINE F Allam
My real concrn is the lack of freedom in choosing individually how we make health decision for our selves and family.
How to see my community
Agree with Joan re: children. Also with Catherine. Militarism is impacting our LOCAL conversations re: justice and rights.
it looks like no one i know having access to the healthcare they want or even knowing their options!
CATHERINE F Allam
Freedom whether to use masks or not. Real health begins with building immunity. There should be freedom of choice how one fights disease.
also watching community members not being able to save/have cushions for situations like covid = poverty, homeless, etc.
Also in Public schools, inequality yes. And here in the city, lack of Nature contact for the children whether public or private… Nature is needed for a humanistic education…
it seems that poverty is a very obvs proof that the trickle-down system doesn’t benefit us…..but will we ever change the system to something like 3 folding via typical channels of the existing political system?
I am new to all of this and am in a place of educating myself and connecting. Do you have connections or resources in Denver?
Essential workers and farm workers!!
even if they don’t evict, they’ll be in debt and will be unable to save
It’s also “unintended consequences” of some well intentioned policies and solutions. We tend to not believe that we are vulnerable to the “Road to Hell is paved with good intentions.” One good example is the policy from the 60s of giving single family households a higher level of welfare, making it more possible to live if one spouse leaves, making many homes without solid parental support. It’s a symptom of our habit of looking at all problems to be solved by the government (wrong sphere in the threefold imagination) that are cultural, spiritual, or economic problems.
Mutual Aid Networks
and yet welfare has saved many from domestic violence; there’s so many intersections!
Kate, that’s so wonderful to hear about!!
Imagine the heart connections happening <3
So, person to person, like Mutual Aid gives real solutions instead of “systemic” solutions that miss the mark and go south because they miss the heart forces in important ways and cause other problems.
what would we do without the agricultural workers RIGHT NOW their work makes it seem not that bad because I can still go to the store and buy food
but I hear they are underpaid way underpaid and working in non-pandemic safe condiditons
CATHERINE F Allam
There is the Spirit to consider as the central point of the support that is needed. There is the moment that is up to us to determine our role that moment and leave the rest to Spiritu guides.
Can you name 1-5 things that keep you alive everyday or enlivened?
food in stores
Can you name one to five things that you rely on everyday that keeps you alive or enlivened?
people working in stores exposed
1. The love of my family and friends in “my community”
my neighbors - we still drum and clap at 7pm in support of essential workers -
2. Who makes these things possible?
2. The power of the work of publishing thoughts that help us all think in new ways. 3. The knowledge that everything is purposeful and the feeling that any symptoms of alienation, separateness is an illusion.
What makes these things possible?
If all of my answers to number 2 were somewhat abstract, what first steps could I do to connect to this real community?
