Starry sky gazing perhaps gave us humans a regular experience of wholesome awe. We could feel that awe is safe. We could feel how good it is to be both small and part of something bigger. We could know that being smaller is not a loss.

We humans used to look up at sparkling dark vastness on clear nights.
Many city dwellers no longer have that natural regular re-set into awe-- feeling blessed, both humble and privileged to be part of something much greater than we can conceive.

Learning by simple connection with nature, perhaps we can more easily drop the cover-up and defense--allowing a deeper transparency, unexpected wisdom and uncontrived kindness to flow through our eyes and minds.

Jaya Ashmore will walk us informally through a deep ecology form called the "Cosmic Walk" --adding her own favorite flashes of wonder. Jaya will also leverage this scientific story of the life of the universe towards living freely, with a mind as deeply transparent as sky and a life as sparkling, unbelievably weird and real as our universe.

with thanks to those who went before and brought us the Cosmic Walk: Miriam McGillis, John Seed and Ruth Rosenbek.
