Summer 2016: Living Transformation

$5.00

This issue of Occasional Papers on “Living Transformation” explores the multiple processes of transformation underway in the cosmos and on this planet and how our personal journeys intersect with these larger stories of transformation.

Why does it matter that we fully participate in the processes of transformation as we are able?
