Sophie Steiner is a Wild!er who embodied the Fierce Grace born when we engage impermanence and the practices of nonviolence. She lived her life to the fullest even while having cancer, and walked her journey profoundly. She died on August 30, 2013 at the age of 15, leaving big tracks for all of us to follow.
In Sophie Steiner’s honor, we have set up the Fierce Grace Fund to ensure that youth living with life threatening illness and/or their siblings will be able to attend a Revolutions Retreat or Quest with Play in the Wild!. Click here to learn more.
In this video, see the adventure and hear from the youth of the 2012 Canoe Quest in Quebec, Canada, about their journey of learning how to trust themselves and each other … and the fun that they had along the way!
On top of Mount Belvedere in Vermont, whith the warm sun and the cool full moon, these youth went on Quest. To answer some questions they had for themselves, to listen to what life had to say. Oh ! what an honour it was to welcome them back, sit in circle..
“He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love. It is impossible even to begin the act of loving one’s enemies without the prior acceptance of the necessity, over and over again, of forgiving those who inflict evil and injury..
Violence results from the tension between what IS and what we think is supposed to be. Krishnamurti La Violence résulte de la tension entre ce qui est et ce que nous croyond devrait être. Krishnamurti
