Love, Care, & Community
With so much uncertainty in this liminal post-covid space, what are the values that we most need to support us? Contemplating this question, Llewellyn offers a richness and guiding light for moving forward through these trying times. After outlining the various cascading maladies afflicting humankind, he shares how we can cultivate and foster a new world based on love, care, and community.
“Stories can help us navigate the inner and outer landscape of our journey. They can help us see the signs that can guide us, the pathways we need to follow. They can help us to look over the horizon of our immediate circumstance, and find the deeper meaning of surface events.” – Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

The Company of Friends (5:25)
Llewellyn reflects on the deep loving quality of friendship and how staying in the company of friends can help us navigate life’s difficulties with a sense of solace and service. Shedding light on the importance of building strong community during the environmental changes and economic restructuring the world will be going through, he shares how we can come together to uncover values that support our shared humanity.
“The primal knowing that one is part of a living community founded on love and service, true companionship, is like a caravan traveling the desert of our increasingly soulless world. Of course, as in any family there are disagreements and difficulties, but this quality of interconnection provides a deep source of solace.” – Llewellyn Vaughan Lee
