In January 2017, Joanna Macy led a retreat at Ghost Ranch in northern New Mexico. Ten participants in that retreat, who live in the Pacific Northwest, met two months afterwards. Here they share their reflections on their experience, inspiration, and learnings for going forth at this watershed moment in human and planetary history.

Pathways Toward Wholeness: Calling in White Folks

by Aryeh Shell

What you are reading here is the story of that change, a story from my heart.
