In the summer of 2020, amid great racial conflict following Breonna Taylor’s killing, Black leaders in Louisville created “A Path Forward,” an extensive, forward-looking document for bringing racial equity to Louisville. The document examined multiple components of racial injustice and recommended actions to alleviate them. This six-week experience will help you engage more deeply – in learning and in action – with racial equity issues facing Louisville and our nation.

Stories are important and can change people. We are now learning the New Earth story is emerging. We now know that we are one with the Earth and come from the Earth rather than act as masters of the Earth. Our troubled world is changing, dying, and is in labor. The new world is being birthed. We as Elders are called to be doulas or midwives. As with the birthing process, we need to be mindful, to breathe, and to have the vision for what is coming forth. As Elders we can be witnesses of hope to this vital process.
As we reflect and claim our wisdom from our lifetime of joys, sorrows, accomplishments and losses we need a place to process what we have given up and what we hope to achieve now in our generative years.

Almost half of our happiness comes from our thoughts, behaviors, and perspectives, which we can control.
