Survival of the Nurtured – Our Path to Belonging

Survival of the Nurtured - Our Path to Belonging


“We are not the survival of the fittest. We are the survival of the nurtured.”
— Louis Cozolino

We flourish when nurtured with love and understanding. Yet for so many, the violence of our society and lack of attuned caretakers has severed trust and belonging. This talk explores how meditation and conscious relating with each other can restore the connections so vital to healing and spiritual freedom.

With That Moon Language

Admit something: Everyone you see, you say to
them, “Love me.”

Of course you do not do this out loud, otherwise
someone would call the cops.

Still, though, think about this, this great pull in us
to connect.

Why not become the one who lives with a full
moon in each eye that is always saying,

with that sweet moon language, what every other
eye in this world is dying to hear?

– poem by Hafiz – translated by Daniel Ladinsky
