ON BEING PROJECT expanded in 2018 to meet tender, tumultuous moments
Friends, listeners, and comrades; beloved community,
I am happy to announce that as of next Saturday (May 12, 2018, the weekly email offering from On Being will be back.
We’ve been quiet these last few months while investing inside – moving out of start-up mode in our young organization and building the organizational depth we’ve needed to meet a tender, tumultuous moment. We are now the On Being Project. And I’m thrilled to introduce you to the beautiful, expanded On Being team.
Finally, it’s a thrill to announce the launch of the On Being Impact Lab. We spun into independence four years ago to be responsive to the way people bring our content into far-flung lives and communities. The Lab will help us take that to the next level, nurturing and catalyzing the nexus of inner life, outer life, and life together. It will be led by Casper ter Kuile, Angie Thurston and Sue Phillips, the team behind the influential How We Gather report that mapped how new generations are creating communities of meaning and belonging. They’ve already hosted a gathering of Elders at our studios in Minneapolis and are incubating our evolving Fellows program. Here’s a link to their most recent report created at Harvard Divinity School: Care Of Souls.
My hope is that the Lab will be a vehicle for how we can be of greater service to the world, leveraging our project towards the generative possibilities of this moment we inhabit.
The On Being Project is an independent non-profit public life and media initiative. We pursue deep thinking and social courage, moral imagination and joy, to renew inner life, outer life, and life together.
We make audio, digital, live event, and other offerings towards the generative possibilities of a tender, tumultuous global moment. We look behind and beyond the news cycle, attending to the human change that makes social transformation possible across generational time.
