As the planet heats up, and hostilities flare between groups and nations, how do we touch and embody the possibility of peace, right here and now? Peace in the future is founded on peace in the present moment. The same is true of justice, and liberation. These are not things we have to wait for or strive to achieve in the future. We can nourish peace, justice and liberation in ourselves and in our communities now, through the practice of awareness in the present moment, and through building communities of resistance and love. This is how we we become the path of peace and justice itself.
