Friday Lecture: Catching Fire: Imagination, Creativity, Activism
Imagination precedes change—psyche is activated by stories, role models, and dreams that touch soul. Passion and imagination precede creativity, healing, activism on behalf of ourselves and others. Compassionate action is spiritual activism. Fierce compassion says, “enough is enough!” Outrage in defense of what and who we love is mother bear activism or the protective masculine that finds the strength to rise up to save what we love, a precious part of ourselves or of our world. It takes courage and love for a vision of who we could be, or what we could do-- to catch fire.
