Camp Prophetology: One World, Many Faiths, an experiential day camp for kids 8 to 13 years old, took place August 1 through 19 at the Interfaith Community Church. It was a great success!

We visited 8 houses of worship and received visits from 9 groups of people to teach us about their traditions. The generosity and…Continue

Compassion is a powerful and passionate feeling from the heart to heal the pain of another without the need to be recognized or to have the action acknowledged. The need to heal.

I think we all can remember where we were when the planes hit or when we heard about them first on 9/11. Perhaps you might even remember what you were wearing, who you were with, and experience a distinct feeling surrounding that imprinted memory.
As you know the 10th anniversary of 9/11 is right around the corner, and a number of remarkable events are happening both in Seattle and globally via webcast where thousands, if not millions, will take part in a global…Continue

Earlier this month I attended the Conference on Happiness and Economics in Bhutan. The conference centered around the concept and method of measuring well-being in relation to economic development. As you may know, Bhutan's unique form of measuring development, Gross National Happiness (GNH), is quickly gaining popularity around the world. The main thrust and logic behind GNH is that every society is striving to increase happiness... So why not measure progress in terms of happiness? GNH…Continue

The process knit us together in ways that transcended the planning itself. Basalt's population is primarily either Anglo or Hispanic, English…Continue

Great song about walking and learning from everyone.
