New Bottom Line 1st Annual Conference:

Peace and Security, Through “Policies of Generosity

and a Reclamation of Environmental Sanity”



Summer - 2024

We invite you to join us for an historic peace event!

Together…. Let us bring forward into every policy “spiritual principles and values of love, kindness, generosity, care.”  Let us see and treat each as sacred beings worthy of respect and dignity.  Let us all respond to the universe with awe, wonder and radical amazement.

Responding in this way, to the crisis in Gaza and other situations of conflict and oppression, we will be able to find a path to reconciliation, healing, peace and justice.  In so doing, we have to start by allowing the pain, the suffering and the sorrow of the world to course through our bodies, to move us to tears, to break open our hearts, to feel the depth of our grief… because grieving is the birthplace of healing, repair and transformation (tikkun) of self and the world. ~ Inspired by Cat Zavis, Executive Director of Network of Spiritual Progressives.
