The focus of "The BeZine," a publication of The Bardo Group Beguines, is on sacred space (common ground) as it is expressed through the arts. Our work covers a range of topics: spirituality, life, death, personal experience, culture, current events, history, art, and photography and film. We share work here that is representative of universal human values however differently they might be expressed in our varied religions and cultures. We feel that our art and our Internet-facilitated social connection offer a means to see one another in our simple humanity, as brothers and sisters, and not as “other.” This is a space where we hope you’ll delight in learning how much you have in common with “other” peoples. We hope that your visits here will help you to love (respect) not fear. For more see our Info/Mission Statement Page.

  1. It is good to be reminded of Sitting Bull’s wisdom as we think about war and peace! “War” is such a basic way we “go unconscious” as we think about solving human problems. “War” has become such a basic metaphor as try to get rid of things that we do not want to think about and address in human discourse and action. He asks us to think again about how we use these metaphors and see them with “new eyes”!

  2. Funny how our ideas of peace and war, meekness and power are thrust into little boxes and lose the nuances that give them dimension. We mistake aggression for strength and forget that caring and compassion require great fortitude as well.

  3. That is our way, to care for the community and all that live there. This extends to all of creation,although, in truth we often fail to live up to the ideal. Still, we hold in our hearts the task of being true warriors.
