I want to recommend a great new book: Occupy Spirituality by Adam Bucko and Matthew Fox. A young activist and an elder spiritual warrior dialogue about the spirituality inherent in the Occupy Movement. The book is a call for contemplation, justice and compassion in a world gone wrong. The authors interviewed and filmed activists in the Occupy Movement from coast to coast. The appeal to me is that they call upon me to get involved and to be elder to the Occupy Generation. The call is for justice and eco-justice.
In the book they reference a powerful speech by activist Chris hedges, “Real Hope Is about Doing Something.” http://www.truthdig.com/report/item/hope_in_the_21st_century_20101128/
I hope this material challenges to be an elder you as much as it is challenging me.
