In the most recent edition of Deep Times, “Sacred Wisdom, Sacred Earth,” we explore what might be called the “spiritual” roots of the Work That Reconnects. Our intention was to honor the wisdom traditions that have sustained so many people throughout history up to the present time as they have faced hardship, oppression, and collective trauma. A common thread in almost all those traditions has held Earth as the sacred source of life–hence: “Sacred Wisdom, Sacred Earth.”
This theme evoked a strong response, bringing in more submissions than we’ve ever received before, predominantly poetry. Consequently, this issue is larger than most, with three or more poems and one to three essays for each stage of the Spiral–as well as three videos. We hope you will find solace and inspiration here, and resources for your work for the Great Turning.
