THE BRIDGES THAT GO EVERYWHERE
Stephanie Mines, Ph.D.
Vision Holder, Climate Change and Consciousness
Bridge building to new populations is an adventure into the unknown. It has its risks. It is about expansion with an open heart. It is a generous initiative; an invitation to worldwide neighbors. It is a compassionate gesture of inclusivity to those who are waiting for their place and purpose to be revealed so that they can become active in building a sustainable future right here, right now.
Bridge building is a daring act and the results are unpredictable. These bridges are built on new, uncharted terrain. Bridge building requires perseverance, persistence and the certainty that we are all in this together and beneath any resistance, we will find both love and caring for the future of all humanity.
In my bridge building experiences I have suffered some defeat, but oddly each defeat has only strengthened my resolve that the fine art of bridge building is worth cultivating.
In our Now What?! meetings on April 6 and 9 (11-12:30 PDT) we will share our individual and collective desire to build bridges and our experiences and questions about how to continue and extend our bridges to everywhere. These meetings will focus on two areas where I have some history with bridge building:
The fundamental topics are crossing the barriers of age, race, ethnicity, gender, identity and class to form a global unity for the continuity of humanity. We are, together, not only bridge builders. We are also research scientists, developing resources and wisdom to pass on to other bridge builders so that their tasks are easier.
