Start a daily practice to restore you to balance

With Andrew Harvey

40 days & 40 nights:
A Journey of Prayer and Contemplation



As we enter another year of great promise and great change, I invite you to join Andrew in a daily practice designed to guide you with prayer and ground you with the peace that helps restore you to balance.

Covering the timespan between winter’s end and spring’s new beginnings, this 40-day period is known in spiritual traditions and literature as a time of transformation. Meaningful change needs time to unfold and 40 days has long been one measure of its maturation.

To engage the power of that mystical number, Andrew is calling this practice, 40 Days & 40 Nights, A Journey of Prayer and Contemplation, and invites you to walk its path with me. This journey begins in the traditional time of Lent and ends in the rapture of the Resurrection. Lent has long been known as a time of going within, of simplifying and purifying our lives, exposing our deepest shadows to the light of transformative grace, helping us empty ourselves out and allow in the healing truth of that grace.

Please join Andrew starting on March 2nd at 6am CST.


Andrew Harvey is Founder and Director of The Institute for Sacred Activism, an international organization focused on inviting concerned people to take up the challenge of our contemporary global crises by becoming inspired, effective, and practical agents of institutional and systemic change, in order to create peace and sustainability.

Sacred Activism is a transforming force of compassion-in-action that is born of a fusion of deep spiritual knowledge, courage, love, and passion, with wise radical action in the world. The large-scale practice of Sacred Activism can become an essential force for preserving and healing the planet and its inhabitants.
