Response to the NZ Mosque Shootings - Voices from the SDI Conference
Monday, March 18, 2019 - 1:18pm
Keeping Hearts Open
Please watch this 7-minute video all the way through.
It will take you on a journey - into grief and towards healing.
Listen till the end. Through the black. Then wait a while in stillness.
Open your heart.
Yes, listen to these wise voices. They come from people participating in the Spiritual Directors International Conference, March 14-17, 2019, in Bellevue, Washington, USA.
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. We call urgently for a transformation - from violence and hatred to respect and compassion.
We send you love, even as we mourn our communal loss.
May the light every person brings to this planet shine to its full potential.
With gratitude to Matthew Whitney who shot and created 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 Wendy Wendie Bernstein Lash.
