Please watch this entire video. It will take you on a journey - into grief and towards healing. Listen to the end. Through the black. Then linger and wait in stillness. Open your heart. Yes, listen to these wise voices. They come from people participating in the Spiritual Directors International Conference in March 2019. From different spiritual traditions and inclinations, and from our deep listening hearts which form the core of the calling of spiritual direction, we offer our love to all those affected by this violation and loss of human life and sanctity. We stand with the people of Christchurch and New Zealand and the whole world and call urgently for a transformation - from violence and hatred to respect and compassion. We send you love, even as we mourn our communal loss. Blessings to all. May the light every person brings to this planet shine to its full potential. With gratitude to Matthew Whitney who shot and creating this video. And to those who shared from the heart: Genjo Marinello Roshi, Cynthia Bailey Manns. Ravi Verma, Rabbi Amy Eilberg, Sister Kathleen McAlpin. Rev. Seifu Anil Singh-Molares, Rev. Felicia Parazaider, Yogacharya O'Brian, Imam Jamal Rahman, and Wendie Bernstein Lash.
