“To be human is to belong. Belonging is a circle that embraces everything… The word ‘belonging’ holds together the two fundamental aspects of life: Being and Longing, the longing of our Being and the being of our Longing.” —John O’Donohue, Eternal Echoes
If you have found your way here, it is safe to say you are a seeker. Perhaps you are looking to be in community with like-minded people who have the consciousness you seek. And while it is a given that each individual must do their own inner work, every one of us needs love, guidance and support to aid us in our transformation. As humans, we are social beings. Study after study has shown that when we are connected, when we feel we are part of something larger, we thrive. We are healthier, live longer. We are fulfilled. Yet we find ourselves in a world that is more and more disconnected. By addictive technology, by transient jobs, by broken families, and distant relatives. And most recently, by political, ethnic, and social divides.
Many of us now feel alone within our own neighborhoods and families.
So how do you connect with Your Tribe in a world where civil discourse has all but disappeared?
That’s where LyceumLIVE comes in: Borrowing Lyceum from Aristotle’s school of philosophy, LyceumLIVE becomes an online meeting ground for you to discover and access new ideas of moving forward in our transforming world. You are invited into the hearts and minds of messengers whose life work is to bring about the metamorphosis that our world is now undertaking. Messengers who offer Hope and a bridge toward Healing. Messengers whose passion has evolved from a story not unlike yours. And just as Aristotles’s Lyceum attracted increasing numbers of philosophers and students from all over the Mediterranean world, LyceumLIVE’s ever growing community of messengers and seekers invites conversations to open internationally, across cultural divides as well as geographic ones.
Since 2015 it has been our privilege to serve as a Messenger’s Platform, creating conscious community in collaboration with messengers of hope and healing to restore our collective soul. LyceumLIVE was designed to allow us to see our similarities , and move quickly beyond the fear of our differences. It is in this safe space where our hearts open and our authentic selves emerge. This is where true relationship begins.
If you are looking to find your tribe or simply expand your connections, I invite you to join our growing community. I promise you will be glad you did.
