Interview with Peter Kingsley: Remembering What We Have Forgotten

by Richard Whittaker, Works & Conversations, May 21, 2011

Peter Kinglsey: There are lots of people who use the word “challenge” to define what my work is putting on the table–spiritually and philosophically, culturally and historically. But to me it’s all very simple. Most of the problems we have in the West are not due to the fact that at the origins of Western civilization there’s something fundamentally wrong. On the contrary, there’s something infinitely precious at the origins of our civilization. The trouble is that it’s been lost because we started taking it for granted. We’ve gradually let it distort itself and so it keeps on falling down one octave, then another octave of understanding.

The Power of Story

by Peter Forbes, founder of The Center for Whole Community

Today one of the most transformational things any of us can do is to listen deeply to the stories of others. For eight summers now, I have spent many evenings in a circle of leaders who are there to listen intently and to speak honestly and directly to one another. As often as a Vermont summer will allow, we meet outside under the stars with blankets across our laps and lanterns at our feet. We face one another and endure moments of nervous laughter as we settle into the presence of this place and one another. Continue reading
