Become more fluent in your humanity. Shape your presence in the world.

Welcome to the On Being Project. We explore the big questions of meaning at the intersection of spiritual inquiry, science, social healing, and the arts:

What does it mean to be human?
How do we want to live?
Who will we be to each other?

You can find us in the studio producing the award-winning On Being and Poetry Unbound, incubating tools in the Lab for the Art of Living, and hosting quiet conversations and not-so-quiet gatherings.

Step away from the week with us in our weekly letter, The Pause, and read Krista Tippett’s letter about the next chapter of our adventure.

A song of praise to the crop-top from a crop-top-wearing man who encounters comments in public and sings and swings.


We’re pleased to offer Kyle Carrero Lopez’s poem, and invite you to sign up here for the latest from Poetry Unbound.

The visionary, next-generation organizer Ai-jen Poo says this of Tarana Burke: “There are just so many layers of hope that she brings to the world and to people like me, to survivors, to all kinds of communities.” Ai-jen and Tarana are the conversation partners for this episode of The Future of Hope. And what a conversation it is. We listen in on a brilliant friendship that has powered and sustained two extraordinary women who are leading defining movements of this generation that call us to our highest humanity. Ai-jen spoke with Krista in 2020 for our episode, “This Is Our (Caring) Revolution,” and is back as host for this conversation. She has been long ahead of a cultural curve we are all on now — of seeing the urgent calling to update and transform not just how we value the caregiving workforce of millions, but how we value care itself as a society. Tarana founded the ‘me too.’ Movement. What you are about to hear is intimate, revelatory, and rooted in trust and care. It’s also an invitation to all of us, to imagine and build a more graceful way to remake the world.

Poetry, the Human Voice

In the words of David Whyte, “Poetry is language against which you have no defenses.”
