Is It Oxymoronic to Speak of a Spiritual Learning Community?

N. Michel Landaiche, III

In "Is It Oxymoronic to Speak of a Spiritual Learning Community?" Dr. N. Michel Landaiche, III, explores the paradox of a learning community, which is by very nature a distinctly human and temporal effort, and the spiritual, "a dimension not only infinitely large but timeless and divine, in which any human discovery or growth is already known, already always superseded."

A Pensive Pause

Problem or Possibility?

Joanne Winetzki

Drawing inspiration from an episode of Downton Abbey, Joanne Winetzki quotes the character Mr. Bates: "Whenever I see a problem, you see only possibilities." Winetski muses, "When we perceive a situation as a problem, we are apt to settle for a quick fix to it and overlook any new opportunities the bend in life's path might offer. In contrast, perceiving 'only possibilities' opens up unlimited resources we may consider, not only to solve our problem, but to improve upon it."

A Peek Between the Covers

Joanne Winetzki

This time around, Joanne Winetzki "Peeks Between the Covers" of Sacred Geography: Deciphering Hidden Codes in the Landscape by Paul Devereux. Sacred geography is, according to Devereux, "where the physical world and the 'other worlds' of spirit and soul meet." While our contemporary worldview may tend to minimize spiritualities that are rooted in the land — perhaps often relegating such notions to tribal cultures — embracing the land continues today in the form of pilgrimages and the exploration of historical or natural sites. Winetzki says of the book: "Sacred Geography reminded me of the connect-the-dots games in children's activity books. When linked, the myriad random dots scattered over an otherwise blank page would magically produce a picture. Paul Devereux has connected hundreds of sacred places around the planet in what he defines as 'geographies of the soul.'"
