THE ARCHAEOLOGY OF
COURAG
E

WITH
Kathy Altman 
Lori Saltzman & Joseph Machado

LIVE at Gassho House in Nicasio, CA

You cannot be truthful, if you are not courageous 

You cannot be loving, if you are not courageous 

You cannot be trusting, if you are not courageous 

You cannot inquire into reality, if you are not courageous 

Hence courage comes first, and everything else follows. 

- Osho

We are living in an inflamed world that few can deny. Life’s uncertainty shakes our faith.  

 

Yet our true nature is to love and be loved. In a world in pain and conflict, it takes great courage to lean into listening with love and kindness, to cultivate eyes that can look beneath struggles and differences to see the vulnerability within us all.  

 

To cultivate courage means to live with a full heart: to consciously embrace our insecurities and fears, to voice our truth knowing it is never the whole truth, to move towards risk and lean into faith. As we learn to trust our ever-present vulnerability as a strength, we build our bravery muscles. We become agents of healing, be it as close in as families and friends, or as vast as cultures, communities, and countries in flames. 

 

Our tool kit will include holding and beholding ourselves and each other in all our messy glory. Dance, verbal inquiry, writing and meditation will be our maps. Please join us as we hold hands and take this exquisite risk together.
