Second Quarter 2020 Newsletter

Hope you are safe and well in these extraordinary times.

The theme we are exploring this quarter is

how to be Radically Responsive to what is unfolding in our world.

To be radically responsive is to allow the crisis to provoke a deeper exploration of being human in order to generate better possibilities for this time of ongoing ecological crisis and climate emergency.

radical (adj)

late 14c., in a medieval philosophical sense, from Late Latin radicalis "of or having roots," from Latin radix (genitive radicis) "root" (from PIE root *wrād- "branch, root"). Meaning "going to the origin, essential" is from 1650s.

responsive (adj)

early 15c., "making answer," from Middle French responsif and directly from Late Latin responsivus "answering," from Latin respons-, past-participle stem of respondere
