Join the Campaign to Revivify Wisdom

You’re Invited . . . Though I am just now introducing myself to you, it is my hope that we’ll soon know one another well. We have a common wish – wisdom in our time.  To this end, Seven Pillars House of Wisdom has created a multimedia workbook titled *The Seven Pillars: Journey Toward Wisdom,* that I signed on to promote far and wide.

Creativity Unleashed

In this comprehensive web feature we explore *Creative Expression,* one of Seven Pillars’ three Pathways. Within, you will find pieces by Tobin Hart, Denise Boston and Lee Irwin. Also included is a rich multimedia presentation highlighting how the performing arts community in Los Angeles has imaginatively explored the process of The Seven Pillars. Lastly, we are delighted to announce the first of a series of weekend programs that explore The Seven Pillars at the Abode conference center in New Lebanon, New York this summer.

Song of Creation

The drive to express ourselves, to create in the world, is an innate need like beauty, love, and the search for truth. It seems almost biological, like the need for food and water. In the Nazi concentration camps of World War II, deprived of nearly every- thing, many prisoners composed songs, wrote poetry, and even found ways to paint. A concentration camp survivor himself, Victor Frankl suggested that these were meaning-making activities but ones that were not so much consciously planned as spontaneous outpourings from that deep current, that creative impulse.

Creativity and Love

What is the relationship between love and creativity? Why is creativity important in our relationships with others? How is love a source of inspiration for creative action? In my view, each person is a creative center…whose health and well-being depends upon meaningful relationships with others. Further, our health as individuals depends upon our abilities to relate to others in a context of wholeness, a wholeness that includes our living relationship to nature and other beings, be they humans, animals, plants, angels or spirits.

An Exclusive Seven Pillars Interview with Robin Becker

Recently, Seven Pillars’ Laurie Lane-Zucker and Corin Girard sat down with dancer and choreographer Robin Becker to discuss her original production, “Into Sunlight.” In the interview, Robin spoke of what inspired her to create this poignant work, the “chaos theory” behind her artistic process, the company’s upcoming New York City performances and the creation of an eagerly anticipated documentary film based on the production.

From Battlefield to Stage

When I read They Marched Into Sunlight, David Maraniss’  powerful book on the Vietnam War, I immediately responded to the timelessness and universality of the themes and events he documented. I was deeply moved by the integrity, honor and commitment of both those who fought the war, and those who fought against it. I embarked upon the creation of this dance, Into Sunlight, hoping that the universal language of the body would reflect and offer the same sense of healing that David’s words evoked in me. ~ Robin Becker, Artistic Director

Heartfelt Dialogue

The mystery of heartfelt dialogue, of truly heart-centered conversation, is discovered in the inflow of presence and in a willingness to uncover the desires of the heart, as inspired by an atmosphere of loving concern. As a process of discovery, such dialogue is energized by patience and receptivity to what arises spontaneously and genuinely from the heart.

Elemental

In this exclusive interview with Emmanuel Vaughan-Lee, the Co-Director, Co-Producer and Co-Composer of the documentary Elemental, we explore the persistence of hope and other questions relating to the creation, filming and mission of the film.

What May Be

Responding with mind and heart to the call of the future.
