Tenneson & Quanita reflect on Fire & Water as a program, having just completed their 2nd Fire & Water Retreat, held virtually over five days with a cohort of 18 people, integrating screen times and off-screen times, and weaving focus that appealed to five (or more) senses of learning. They also reflect on Fire & Water as journey and initiation, and the need for such in contemporary times. 18 minutes.
Lots of fun to harvest a time of learning. Having spent 4 July days together in some work, some planning, some design preparation, and of course, some wondering / wandering, Quanita and Tenneson reflect on nature, presence, the practice of encountering self, other, life. With some appreciation for the essentialness of both being and doing.
Tenneson and I have a conversation about race, how we see it in this moment, and what we believe is being called for. We talk a bit about how it shows up between us. Join us and let us know what questions this conversation brings up for you.
Tenneson and I have a conversation about the difference between believing that we are human beings that sometimes have spiritual experiences or spiritual beings that are having a human experience.
Quanita Roberson interviews Tenneson Woolf about his new book, A Cadence of Despair: Poems and reflections on Heartbreak, Loss, and Renewal.
Tenneson and I wanted to invite our Fire & Water online community to our online living room for a coffee/tea call. A big part of Fire & Water is the ability to pay attention to the unseen as well as the seen. In this call we gathered as larger community together and shared what has our attention in this unprecedented time. This episode is the follow up from that call.
