This is an invitation to understand radiance, experiencing new ways of relating to affect, affection, and interaction with all living beings. This experience is also an invitation to re-connect with our planet.
The world is an immeasurable network of bodies and beings that affect each other and are interrelated. All things are interdependent. We are inter-beings, existing in an ever-expanding universe of mutual causality.
All things in the universe constantly exchange energy and information. Energy is everywhere: space is not empty, but full of it. This energy traverses all scales of the universe, interacting, from the infinitely large to the infinitely small. It is permanently changing and reconfiguring itself. It organizes itself into a multitude of forms, varying in density, until it becomes matter, or what we know as reality.
The proposed experience is a suggestion for a possible way to experience radiance, the quality or state of being radiant. The term "radiant" is an adjective meaning:
1. Bright, shining, glowing, luminous.
2. Visibly expressing and manifesting joy, contentment, beauty, hope, and well-being.
3. One that radiates or emits rays or radiations. Sending out light and heat.
