The new Kosmos Quarterly premieres June 15, 2018.
We have convened an illustrious circle of Advising Editors for the inaugural edition of Kosmos Quarterly. This intentional group of global thinkers, healers, activists and artists have come together for 100 days to cross-pollinate ideas and share the fruits of their practice with our subscribers.
Each season, Kosmos invites a new Circle, based on that edition’s emerging theme. The theme for our inaugural edition is Unlearning Together, shedding the limiting beliefs and cultural assumptions that hold us back from co-creating a more loving world.
