June 16, 2019: Exploring our Global Soul with the Diversity and Spirituality Network

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
