For this newsletter we’re highlighting three upcoming conversations plus a magnificent documentary featuring one of our members.
April 8 Awakin Call: Alfred Tolle
April 23 OWL Global Wisdom Circle:
In an environment that has been plagued by corruption, tribalism, insecurity, and unemployment, what does it take to inspire young people to dedicate themselves to building a positive future for themselves and their country? And in response to the relentless human slaughter of wildlife, what does it take to build a positive future for endangered animals?
|Trish Sewe, who lives in Nairobi, Kenya, is passionate about two things: Kenya’s youth, and Kenya’s wild animals. She’ll anchor our conversation with stories of climbing high mountains to reach for big dreams.|
9:00 – 10:30 AM Pacific Time
April 30 Being American Now
|Being American Now
Conversations at a time of darkness
about engaging and supporting
the emergence of light.
At this time of endless Trump administration drama in the U.S. with consequences around the world, friends in the OWL community, in the U.S. & globally, are connecting each month to share how and what we’re doing. What is most concerning to you? What actions have you been taking and what are you learning as a result? What are your personal practices for staying spiritually grounded? What opportunities are you seeing for linking up with others to make a positive difference going forward?
New Documentary Film
Featuring OWL Member Steve Karlin
The story of how Steve’s life journey led him to found the Wildlife Associates sanctuary, outside of Half Moon Bay, for wounded wild animals. And how he and his friend John Malloy have turned the sanctuary into an oasis where wounded animals bring healing to wounded children.
The filmmakers are Rajesh Krishnan and Anne Veh, volunteers in the ServiceSpace community. The film was screened last weekend at the Lark Theater in Larkspur, CA. It is a deeply moving story, a work of beautiful film poetry, told with great love, tenderness and wisdom. The close-up sequences of the children and animals communicating with each other, and healing together, and the dramatic effects on the children, brought many tears and sighs.
It will be offered to the public at no charge in Half Moon Bay at the Odd Fellows Hall on Saturday, April 29, at 7PM. Rajesh and Anne are planning to show it at film festivals around the U.S. They are also making the film available, as a gift, to anyone who would like to arrange a showing in your community. More, including contact information, at Teach Me To Be Wild.
I hope to see you soon!
