Finding Our Way Together

“I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.” – Mother Teresa

Great transformation, healing, and liberation - both individually and collectively - happen when WE gather together. The togetherness becomes sacred medicine for the Soul. A recognition that we are fellow travelers and pilgrims on the path of life in the spiritual accompaniment of others, walking together, as Ram Das says, “we are all just walking each other home.” In this way, community becomes a pathway to a shared space of connection, care, and a larger awakening.

One of the great pillars of Kripalu is the power of our community or Sangha. We cannot be human alone. We need communities of care to support us on the journey toward truth, healing, freedom, and peace. Our liberation is interconnected. Me-to-You-to the greater world. The Collective Wisdom Journal series launches July 1st to amplify and celebrate the stories and work of leaders and voices all over the world who are promoting well-being, liberation, and change. During July, we will evoke and bring alive the spirit of wisdom within yourself, others, and the world around you. Each day you will receive an email journal prompt for reflection and each week there will be inspiring wisdom conversations with one of the authors and leaders of the 30 days.

The essence of our being is seen and brought forth in our communal togetherness. We each carry unique gifts and wisdom to offer one another. When we call on our collective wisdom we drink from the wellspring of inspiration and become nourished by each other. Togetherness opens a larger awakening. Togetherness invites a reclaiming of the unique imprint we have to offer this world. Togetherness brings forth the distinct vibration of you. Togetherness offers a remembering of who and what WE are. The people we surround ourselves with matter. Our ecosystem—including family, friends, lovers, colleagues, community, land, animals, plants, spirit, God, etc.—sees, knows, witnesses, challenges, and births us alive to help sustain our meaning and purpose in this life.

Therefore, this monthlong Collective Wisdom of journaling, self-inquiry, and reflection becomes a portal of transformation for all. A group exploration where we are called forth and activated into our fullness by the community we create, foster, and nurture together. We all carry a piece of the puzzle. WE grow together, WE learn together, WE heal together, WE learn to love together, WE see our blind spots together, WE wake up together, WE remember wisdom together, WE inspire together, WE discover new ways of being and living together, WE change the world together. WE need each other to find our way through. WE are in this together and together is how we find our way.

Join us for the July monthlong community gathering of shared Truth and Wisdom.
