“What does activism really mean? What does it mean to be conscious? How do we bring these two together and design for maximum impact? How do we design a life of joy and meaning?
“When I say ‘activism,’ it almost certainly brings a particular picture to mind. Perhaps it’s people peacefully assembled with picket signs; maybe it’s masked members of a protest movement throwing rocks at cops; or maybe it’s making a monthly donation to an organization that does wonderful work. How many of you think of a monk meditating on a mountaintop? How about a group of people engaged in collective inquiry to uncover hidden or limiting beliefs? What if instead of saying ‘activism’ I said ‘spiritual activism?’ Would that change the picture that first comes to mind? If yes, I think that’s a problem and I am going to tell you why. Then I am going to offer a solution and invite you to play a new game.
