Signs of Hope: New Stories Shaping a Better World
We are delighted to offer this series of monthly conversations with pioneers serving the Common Good and actively sowing seeds of a better world at every opportunity.
We find ourselves in a period of transition between two Ages when old structures and beliefs are dying and new ones are emerging. Sometimes it is difficult to see the hope-filled shoots of new possibilities amid the disarray of a society in upheaval.
The intent behind this new series is more than just naming projects around the planet that are giving birth to hope – its deeper purpose is to create a portal through which the presence of Fiery Hope can enter and ignite the heart of our humanity. It is an invitation for us to act as true Gaians and be active agents of Hope and Healing wherever and whenever we find ourselves – encouraging us to step up and offer our unique gifts in response to the call of the Soul and the urgent need of the times.
Our guests for the May 16th Signs of Hope broadcast are Dr. Marty K. Casey (Founder and CEO – UnGUN Institute) and Kenny Bey (Consultant – UnGUN Institute) and Michael Lindfield hosted the session on behalf of Meditation Mount.
