Three Seven Pillars Experiences

Los Angeles, California

GALLERY: On Saturday, October 18th, 2013, the staff of Seven Pillars boarded a plane from New York to Los Angeles to participate in a series of weekend experiences that had been in development for nearly a year. The fruits of those labors included over 100 people, and took three very different forms: a large scale benefit concert, an intimate, immersive transformance and a university talk. Each event was unique but the mission was the same: cultivate living wisdom through The Seven Pillars process! (Event videos included below the gallery.)  See the gallery »

Gould Farm Cookbook & Recipes

A Hundred Years of Good Food

Gould Farm is a progressive mental health treatment community and hundred-year-old working farm, committed to the recovery of people challenged by a mental illness. As the first residential treatment community in the nation, Gould Farm has become a model for other programs around the world and a beacon of hope for people looking to regain their lives. Gould Farm’s model of care is based on three key ingredients: expert clinical care, meaningful work, and a place of belonging in a kind and authentic community. From growing the hay that feeds the cows to processing the milk that becomes cheddar cheese on a Harvest Barn bagel, to harvesting kale and making soup, providing for this community’s needs becomes a therapeutic exercise in interconnectedness and productivity.

This gallery features images of the farm paired with recipes from their recently published cookbook, Gould Farm: A Hundred Years of Good Food.  See the gallery »

Sacred Garden

Biodynamic Farming in Action

There is a silver lining to the era of post-materialistic devolution of values. In the depths of the crisis brought on by these destructive trends, a new, individualized, eco-spiritual consciousness of the world is emerging. From thousands of humble, everyday people—farmers, eaters, scientists, educators, artists and business people—a grassroots awakening to the ecological and spiritual realities that sustain the earth and her creatures is taking place.

Bless This Food

Ancient and Contemporary Graces from Around the World

Food blessings provide a window to the profound spirituality that we all share and that connects us to all humankind, nature, and the infinite. The thanks-giving food blessing is the prayer said most often in the home. Whether impromptu words or a formal prayer, the food blessing is a powerful medium that enriches the meaning of family and allows us to touch a higher realm of spirituality. From humankind’s earliest beginnings to today, food is the thanks-giving link and universal form of expression for gratitude to the Almighty.

Included within this gallery is a beautiful selection of blessings from Adrian Butash's recent book, Bless This Food: Ancient & Contemporary Graces from Around the World (New World Library, 2013), accompanied by an adaptation from the introductory pages.  See the gallery »

Paul Devereux’s Sacred Geography Series

Gallery One: Where the Great Spirit Sits

In this 5-part series of galleries, we will look at a range of sacred geographies, the mindscapes of past times that can still speak to our souls. The power of sacred place.

This sacred geography is located within the forested wilderness of Whiteshell Provincial Park in the Canadian province of Manitoba. Two areas of focus are explored in this gallery: Tie Creek and Bannock Point. The images show ‘petroforms’ at both locations, which include large-scale abstract and geometric designs and patterns, such as lines, grids, curved and radial settings.  See the gallery »

Inside “Into Sunlight”

An evocative gallery of images from the performance

Pulitzer Prize-Winning Author of They Marched Into Sunlight, David Maraniss writes: From the moment I heard that Robin Becker wanted to create a modern dance inspired by my book on Vietnam, I knew that it would be beautiful and interesting, like anything Robin undertakes. However, I wondered how she would connect her choreography to the storylines of the book and how deeply I would feel a connection to what I wrote about and what I would see in the movements on stage. That question dissolved as soon as her wonderful dancers began. From their first piece, I was utterly absorbed, feeling my book in a way that I never had before, and that sensation stayed with me until the night was done.  See the gallery »
