Aristotle believed that humanity was comprised of three experiences: theoria, praxis, and poiesis. He believed we must live into all three experiences to fulfill our human potential.
_Theoria means contemplation._ Not just superficial contemplation, but deep contemplation done in communion with the sacred for 'theo' is the divine.
_Praxis means process._ We are actors in this world, and it is through the way that we act, we can reflect our our inherent divinity.
_Poiesis means creativity._ It is through our ability to create from our divinity in a process of action that our life finds meaning beyonds itself.
