In this issue: Drew Dellinger on new generations and the power of story.
“The stories of sexism and racism that have cast such a pall over our history and our present illustrate the power of worldview and narrative in generating and maintaining systemic oppression. Stories become structures, systems, policies, and practices that have profound consequences on the bodies and in the lives of people in targeted communities.”

This moment in history, with its escalating and interconnected political, environmental, and social challenges, calls for engaged, compassionate, and courageous individuals who sense and respond to the urgency of our times—of this world in turmoil, and of this culture in transition. The solutions must come from within, and they must come from all of us. They must start here, there, and everywhere—in hearts and homes and communities and organizations around the world.
There is no better time to invest in organizations like this one. As a home for inquiry, connection, and learning, the Whidbey Institute makes change possible by cultivating place, nurturing community, and co-creating experiences that develop the change-maker in each of us. This is where the leadership potential of each and every one of us can emerge, where we are supported and inspired to engage more wholeheartedly and effectively with the world’s complex challenges.
