“The Four Quadrants of Activism”
In a wild world like this, we need our activism to be as effective as possible. The Four Quadrants is a model developed by philosopher Ken Wilber, which helps us understand ourselves, our relationships, and the systems we all swim in together on this planet. When we optimize how we use each of these four (self, relationships, planet, and systems), we become much more powerful than when we’re hyper-focused on any single one of them. This morning, we’ll work with applying this philosophical model to the issues that mean the most to us – amplifying the effectiveness of our heart’s compassion. –Rev. Fa Jun, Minister

“Hope Springs Eternal”
As the energies of Spring rise up, we also feel the stirrings of hope within. As the saying goes, hope springs eternal, but it’s not always easy to find this eternal spring. This morning we’ll explore the powerful medicine that is hope. We’ll also discover how to stoke our hope even when outer circumstances make it difficult. By mastering hope, we gain a high-powered fuel to supercharge good works for ourselves, others, and world. –Rev. Fa Jun, Minister
