On “Threshold”

Petra Lentz-Snow
From the School of Lost Borders

Is the pandemic “a collective human rite of passage?” It depends. Crisis needs our participation and intention to turn into opportunity.”  Will it lead to the change we’ve been waiting for or more repression? It invites us to “go in,” to “suspend knowing,” to “make moment by moment holy…make sanctuary where we are, give away what weighs us down.” A “profound silence… has come down from the hills to reach deeply into our homes for our fugitive hearts. Can we let it in?”
