Everybody's hopes focus on the promised vaccine, which will resolve the symptoms of the virus, but not its causes. This is a virus with a global message from a tortured earth and the destructive interference of rapacious humans. It is a wake-up call for all of us to reclaim our integrity as Earthlings, and learn to live with our Earth in a wiser and more discerning way. 

Resident with private room, $615; Live stream at home via Zoom, $435

We cannot create knowledge without acting. The focus of this action is (a) to transform the world, (b) to establish interdependent relationships with human beings, with the cosmos and with God.
