Cosmic Transitions and Personal Challenge
with Moh Hardin
February 6 / 7:00 PM - February 6 / 9:00 PM
Human consciousness is going through a “cosmic” transition, one that is much needed if we are to survive. Fundamentally, this is a transition from fixed ideas to openness, from self-centeredness to greater awareness, from an imbalance between masculine and feminine energies towards balance.
This is good, but when our inherited assumptions and projections no longer work it causes tension, confusion, and groundlessness. This is challenging to individuals, relationships, and communities.
How can we ride these challenges and “be the change we would like to see?” In this talk and discussion, we will explore some of the sane and helpful advice about opening to greater awareness offered by the Buddhist teachings.
