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.

Meanwhile, we’ve been producing the On Being episode each week as ever, adding new voices to the blog, and also making some new things, including…

  • We hosted the first ever On Being Gathering in February. It was a joyous, nourishing, energizing experience. We learned so much, gained so much, and will continue this experiment in the future. We had to turn too many people away, and this is flowing into our thinking and planning forward.
  • We’ve recently launched a new podcast, This Movie Changed Me, which gets at the kinds of questions On Being takes up but through a lens of popular culture. It is exquisitely produced by Maia Tarrell and Chris Heagle and hosted by On Being Studio’s Executive Producer Lily Percy. If you haven’t listened, TMCM is a delight. Please subscribe! And let us know what you think.

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.
This is exciting.

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.
As I said, a lot to share.
Meanwhile, we’re working on an evolved website and social presence and new pathways of communication and engagement in and through the many facets of our work. Stay tuned for that in coming months.
Be on the lookout in your inbox next Saturday morning for the newsletter, curated by our wonderful new colleague Kristin Lin. That’s her, smiling, in the photo above!
I am grateful for your presence along this adventure.

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.

We are a one-of-a-kind magazine that provides local, regional, national and international information about women’s lives and education, performing and visual arts and writing, the environment, green living and sustainability and regional Western North Carolina business, people and events. “Villages preserve culture: dress, food and dance are a few examples. As villages grow in population and turn into towns, local cafes make way for large American chains. Handmade leather sandals are discarded for a pair of Western sneakers. Due to its small size, a village fosters a tight-knit sense of community. explains the meaning of the African proverb, “It takes a village,” by stating that a sense of community is critical to maintaining a healthy society. Village members hold a wealth of information regarding their heritage: they know about the ancient traditions, methods of production and the resources of the land. When villages become dispersed or exterminated in times of war, this anthropological knowledge disappears. Large cities are not as conducive to growing and producing foods such as fruits and vegetables. Villages, on the other hand, usually have ample amounts of land and other resources necessary for growing conditions.” The Importance of Villages by Catherine Capozzi Our Mission provides readers with information important to women’s lives and well-being. We focus primarily on the areas of education & health, business & finance, the arts & the environment. We are particularly interested in local & regional resources, organizations & events.
