|What do you (or organization) hope for in connection with a deep time perspective?|
I’m eager to engage with other seekers exploring the intersections between that which is Sacred and an evolving cosmic consciousness.
|Short description of your (or organization's) current interest/work in an deep time perspective:|
Currently, I am particularly attracted to Ilia Delio’s work on Teilhard and am especially interested in discussions on ‘spiritual, not religious’ themes, “Holy” and “Sacred” within the context of an evolving cosmic story.
I am actively engaged with The Guild for Spiritual Guidance, a non-profit organization offering spiritual formation programs examining the insights of Teilhard de Chardin, Jungian psychology and diverse Mystical traditions.
|What are you (or organization) looking for from the Network?|
I’d like the opportunity to discuss views and insights about what is held sacred, values and what’s next….

|Applying a Deep Time evolutionary perspective to what fields/issues:|
|Favorite Quote Having to do With a Deep Time Evolutionary Perspective:|
“For we will recover our sense of wonder and our sense of the sacred only if we appreciate the universe beyond ourselves as a revelatory experience of that numinous presence whence all things come into being. Indeed, the universe is the primary sacred reality. We become sacred by our participation in this more sublime dimension of the world about us.” Thomas Berry
