SOLITUDE AND SOCIETY
We are a living conversation of individuals, each one a sanctuary of solitude unto themselves, and we are an instrument of connection between persons, peoples, traditions, perspectives, and institutions. Our work in the world is measured by the solitudes we support and the connections we communicate.
Our conversation connects a plurality of traditions with origins in Native America, Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and Africa, composing their various perspectives together into one whole. We draw upon the rational spirit of the American Enlightenment, the transcendental spirit of the American Renaissance, and the environmental spirit of the American West to form a unified culture of individual possibility, accessible to all people everywhere who ask the abiding questions of life and death and love and meaning. We believe in the infinitude of the individual as a foundation for the healing of the nations.
