A Phoenix appeared to Virginia Swain in a dream on 9/11 when she was in NYC during the World Trade Center attacks to invite people into a spiritual renaissance based on the Phoenix message: knit our hearts and minds together during this very divided time. After sitting with the dream in meditation for nearly 17 years, Virginia leads others to heal the divides in America and to inquire into the nature of America’s relation to the rest of the world through Reconciliation Leadership and the ways in which we can contribute to the global commons through the Global Mediation and Reconciliation Service.

Exploring our Global Soul June 16, 2019 with the Diversity and Spirituality Network, 11:30-1:00 

The topic for last month’s America’s Soul Community in collaboration with the Diversity and Spirituality Network Exploration is Exploring the Global Soul. We begin with three interrelated premises: that the world (or Gaia), is a living being; that this being evolves and is illuminated with consciousness; and that individual beings within Gaia’s domain can align with and support her continual transformation. After examining these premises, we’ll then explore their implications, for ourselves, the people with whom we interact, and the nations in which we live. For more information, go to A Spiritual Renaissance for our Global Soul
