Laguna Chapalac - April 04, 2020

LCS

The Lake Chapala Society is closed until April 30.

Open Circle

Open Circle has suspended its weekly program at Lake Chapala Society. In lieu of a personal presentation, each week Open Circle will highlight a different video of a past presentation.

Sunday, April 5, David Bryen presents “Caring for the Soul in Times of Chaos,” filmed on January 5, 2020.

Humanity is experiencing The Dark Night of the Soul! How do we address the shredding of civility and eruption of hate and polarization, without being overtaken by our own tribalism or withdrawing in fear? How do we preserve the interior dimensions of soul life when chaos preoccupies our attention? How do we thread our way between responsibility to the world and connection to the soul? But what is soul? How does it work? What does it want? How do we unlock its intelligence rather than fall prey to primitive reactions? Listening to and loving the soul is the true work of our lives.

“Caring for the Soul in Times of Chaos” can be viewed at https://youtube/ztrUUXEi-cA<span< a=""> class="Apple-converted-space">  or by accessing it at opencircleajijic.org.
