Awakening Connection After Covid: Introducing “The Sanity Project” with Zoe Alowan & Bill Kauth

The residue from the years of lockdown and crisis during the COVID-19 pandemic is apparent to everyone. Many friends and families have been torn apart. Trust in corporations and the government has declined. The New Normal seems extremely polarized, alienated and even crazy. Where do we look to find honest connection, clarity and support?

Our friend, Charles Eisenstein, has launched what he is calling “The Sanity Project.” He says, “sanity is a group project.”

As he puts it “I’m not made of different stuff than anyone else. I can’t stay sane on my own.”

His program is about summoning “islands of sanity,” as “incubators of sanity for coming times.” This is deep core community building.

In 2013 Charles Eisenstein published his book, “The More Beautiful World Our Hearts Know is Possible.” This inspired our last decade of community building, and our book “We Need Each Other.” Now, in this time, we really do need each other to keep centered and sane, even in the midst of hysteria, personal and global.

May this presentation offer something beautiful, right here in Ashland, Oregon, that our hearts know is possible. Each of us may find a purposeful role to play in this New and Ancient Story and community challenge. We invite you to join us.

Community builders, co-authors of “We Need Each Other” and leaders of live and online courses. Zoe as sacred artist uses painting, dancing, singing in women’s circles to reclaim beauty and wisdom. Bill as cofounder of The ManKind Project and author of A Circle of Men, has helped launch men’s work into the world.
