“If ever there was a time and a place to reconnect with imagination, that place is here and that time is now. Humanity stands at a crossroads, one direction leading to worse destruction, the other to the endless possible. Your contribution could help tip the balance to propel humanity forward to its better future. A pathway exists for you to make this contribution.”
“I believe this global emphasis on growing our Imaginal capacities will pull human evolution into the abundant future on a collective and individual level. This is because the imagination moving through you has a potent life of its own. However, to unlock its power, you need to unplug from the overdrive of contemporary life and create the time and space to listen within. Slowing down, separating from the to-do list, and quieting the busy mind provide space for something other to express itself. In this state of quiet, the Curious Mind, spontaneous imagination has the room to present on its own behalf. Taking just twenty minutes each day and quieting down invites the imagination— which is always moving through you, just below the surface of your awareness—to make an appearance.”

A quote that resonated with me this week…
