Leadership for an
Emerging New Story

We are living between stories...

The old story is no longer effective.  Yet we have not learned 'the new story.'  We are talking only to ourselves.  We are not talking to the rivers, we are not listening to the wind and stars.  We have broken the great conversation.

Call of the Sacred Wild

Repairing the great conversation between humans and the rest of the alive and sacred world is essential to midwife the changes our culture and our planet desperately needs. A 'new story' (which is a multiplicity of new stories) of equity, regeneration, kindness, and reciprocity -- a kin-dom of God -- will require a new kind of spiritual leadership.



The New Story is Emerging through Us

At pivotal times in history -- times of great unraveling that creates space for something new to emerge -- people are called into a new way of being human. 


In ancient Judeo-Christian stories, as well as those found in most other religious traditions, the call to leadership is always initiated by a call into the wilderness.
To listen to the wind, the trees, the stars.  To remember who you are and the role you are here to play in the ongoing evolution of life.

This is one of those pivotal moments in history As ecological, cultural and civic integrity unravels, heart-centered people are being called into a new kind of spiritual leadership, deeply connected with both spirituality and nature.   


The collapse we are experiencing is actually initiating the emergence of a new story


The new story is actually many stories, and they are emerging through us, through people whose hearts are open to the voices of the sacred whispering through the forest and ocean and sky.

You may feel it on a deep, numinous, unspoken level:  a call to reweave the threads of your unique gifts and privileges, your particular wounds and experiences, together with the stories and beings of the place you call home.

The reconnection of Spirit and Nature is essential to the profound shift happening in our world.  Your offerings toward the new story may not have a form yet.  That's okay.  Most of what is needed right now does not have a template. 

The journey to listen for this wild call, to respond to the particular ways you belong in this pivotal time and your remarkable alive landscape is a collective one.
