LIVING FROM A COSMIC PERSPECTIVE

April 9 –Tuesday

Imagine a world in which everyone, and especially those with power and influence, holds an expanded view of our place in the cosmos. Imagine living from the perspective that we do not simply live in this universe but that the universe lives within us. This cosmic perspective is simultaneously humble—and humbling—spiritual, challenging and filled with mystery. Working with what Neil DeGrasse Tyson, author of Astrophysics for People in a Hurry, describes as attributes of a cosmic perspective, we’ll explore how it might shape our own living.
