Cultivating Inner Stillness in a World Gone Mad

The world is spinning. Our lives often feel caught up in a personal, social, and political whirlwind. The earth groans, injustice abounds, life speeds up and we feel an urgency to make a difference–yet how do we engage from a place of centeredness? How do we act from an inner stillness in a World. Gone. Mad?
