Sacred Activism

Broadcast on July 11, 2017
With Andrew Harvey

The current crises in the world is demanding all of us to step into the fire of "sacred activism"... to break our hearts open time and time again. Join the founder of the Institute of Sacred Activism, Andrew Harvey, as he illuminates the essence of sacred activism: the merging of the passion of the mystic (love for God) and the passion of the activist (love for justice). When these two rivers of passion merge, access to tremendous spiritual power becomes available, and there can be a birthing of a new humanity. Activism becomes compassionate, loving and fierce while guided by wisdom... and spirituality becomes embodied and engaged expressions of love in every moment.

During this fiery session, you'll discover:

  • Why spirituality without activism & activism without spirituality won't work 
  • How to find your individual calling through sacred activism
  • The practical work needed to save humanity, other species & the environment — and, ultimately, birth a new humanity
