Heartwork For Being a Spirit In the World

Those who wake are the students. Those who stay awake are the teachers.
In this talk, Mark will explore the heartwork required to inhabit our lives by engaging our ongoing relationships to self, others, work, community and Source. The integrity of our heartwork depends on integrating who we are with what we do. Regardless of the service we’re called to, the central questions have always been: How will we inhabit our time on Earth? How can we live fully in the face of death? And how can we love fully in the face of life? This of course leads to other questions: How will we know and be known? How do we hold each other as we tumble along in the story of our lives? How will we care for each other in the face of crisis?

“I have come to believe that we can only discover the capacity and meaning of our time on Earth in the context of our struggles, in how we face and inhabit the challenges life presents to us. In this, living together is an applied art of Spirit, one that we can enliven together.”
