The original Greek meaning of the word ‘apocalypse,’ has the sense of an uncovering claims Reverend Jen Bailey, a young elder in the African Methodist Episcopalian church, and founding executive director of the Faith Matters Network, which helps faith leaders address structural inequality in their communities. Bailey traces this uncovering to a “rupture at the very heart of our democracy…rooted in the deep paralysis of anxiety and disparate visions for our collective futures,” and “an inability to process death of bodies and institutions.” Suggesting that this is a moment of “calling in” for “those of us at the margins who are rightly fearing for our lives,” she calls for brave spaces where we can “thicken relationships” and hold each other lovingly accountable to Dr. King’s vision of a beloved community that bridges differences of race, religion, gender, and class.

Teams of two co-leaders will embark on an 18-month, action-oriented experience. They will focus on the development and implementation of a “transformative concept” that shifts or expands the capacity of their local health department.

KLC now directly trains 2,000 people a year AND upwards of 40,000 people have had access to their core programming. Join a virtual conversation with KLC President Ed O'Malley to hear about their experiments, challenges and innovations being driven by a commitment to scale.

Sangha means spiritual community in the Buddhist tradition; paradoxically, during the first six summers, our task at Dalai Lama Fellows, a global network of young social innovators working at the intersection of justice, peace, and ecology, was to create a global, secular community of mindful, compassionate, and ethical leaders.
“At African Leadership Academy, I learned that there are about four thousand different definitions of leadership; the one that resonates most for me is that leadership means making yourself replaceable,” said Hind Ourahou from Morocco at our sixth annual Dalai Lama Fellows Ethical Leadership Assembly earlier this summer. Her work has focused on water and education on the African continent.

Never in a million years did I ever think I would use data and mindfulness in the same sentence. For the past two months, I’ve been wearing a rock in a bra, a device called Spire. You think of it as a Fitbit for stress developed by the Calming Technology Lab at Stanford University. You wear it in your bra or clip it to your waist, and it measures your breath. It streams data to an app on your phone like your step count, but more importantly gives you a report on whether you are calm, tense, or focused based on the length, depth, and spacing of your breath.
