Conference with Dr Michaela Glöckler, MD and Rev. Tom Ravetz.
The public health crisis of the last year has been a great accelerator of tendencies that were already present in our world. Many forces seem to be gathering strength that would separate us from each other, from our natural home, and from our source.
This can cause us pain and fear. We may discover a wish to deny the seriousness of the situation, or to ‘fix’ the pain and fear of ourselves and our friends. Quietly bearing uncertainty and questions can open us for a great potential: that we get to know ourselves better and observe what takes us out of alignment with our true self. With this self-knowledge, we can meet each other with compassion and understanding and work creatively with the tendencies that would divide us.
