Great Power


With what feels like a change with major implications, for most Americans, it’s safe to say, and for much of the world,  has brought uncertainty and wild emotional swings. Indeed, some have felt for the past 4-8 years that powerful leadership, at the very least, would be necessary to bring order and peace. 

Writer J.R.R. Tolkien wrote of such times, reminding us where power also matters.

Your Wild Dream

I mean.. whew.. this is personal mission work, and I think, work that brings many to not just love Dr. Brown’s work, but to engage in learning and in connecting/sharing/empowering, and for some, in training to facilitate based on her research. 

From Krista’s Tippet’s “On Being” radio interview with former U.S. Poet Laureate Natasha Trethewey and interfaith visionary Eboo Patel :

“…DR. EBOO PATEL: …radio host named Norman Corwin…. He’s got this line that I say to a lot of 20-year-olds on campuses:


 “Post proofs that brotherhood is not so wild a dream that those who profit by postponing it pretend.”


“… Post that proof. Just do that. It is a religious act, however small it might be. Just post your proof that

brotherhood, sisterhood,




is not so wild a dream that these other people think it might be.”
