(The following is a lightly edited transcript of Jean Houstons remarks that began the above online presentation about the role of sports and consciousness in fostering social transformation).
What role does sports have to play in todays societal breakdown? Yes, we are in a time of enormous breakdown and also breakthrough. Its the changing of the guard on every level, in which every given is quite literally up for grabs. Its the momentum behind the drama of the world, the breakdown and breakthrough of every old way of being, knowing, relating, governing, and believing, and its shaking the foundations of literally all and everything. But it also allows for another order of reality to come into time.
