Eastern philosophy tells us that the only constant in life is change. Often there is no warning. We engage in our activities each day feeling secure about the future. Then suddenly, we are faced with a catastrophe. A new world is born, and our lives are forever altered. In these times of transition what do we do? How do we move beyond fear and anger to live heartfully in the field of positive possibilities? In the context of 9/11, anthropologist, educator, and award-winning author Angeles Arrien shares her deep wisdom and invites us to explore, with Michael Toms, the significance of change and how to view it in our lives in creative and practical ways. Arrien suggests that the great journey of life is made up of phases and changes, and that there are always signals and signposts to guide us. Says Arrien, “On 9/11, a window was opened to push us to look at the darkness and light. We have been initiated into a time where we need to dim the ego, befriend the shadow, and build bridges between polarity, paradox and opposition.” (hosted by Michael Toms)
