A Conversation with Robert Gass & Nina Utne

| January / February 2006

About Spiritual Activism

Nina Utne: Our cover says "Calm in the Chaos." What does this suggest to you?

Robert Gass: These are times of great change. Work, families, community life, the social and political landscape, even our physical environment and climate are in flux. Technological changes are affecting almost every aspect of our lives. In the face of all this change, we understandably feel anxious and overwhelmed. But change is inevitable. It's the way of things. Those who want to help create a positive future for coming generations have no choice but to embrace uncertainty, to ride the turbulent waters of change. We must indeed learn how to stay calm in the chaos.
