Out of Chaos: A New Path Forward
This presentation will speak to what is causing societal/relational chaos and division and reducing our ability to act in positive, healthy ways.  We will also examine root causes of prejudice, aggression and cruelty and pragmatic strategies for reducing those qualities.  The strategies include centering human dignity, cultivating mindsets of inquiry and compassion and engaging in 3 Pathways of Practice.
  • Practices that build awareness and equanimity
  • Practices that build kindness and compassion towards self and others
  • Practices that celebrate common humanity, and break the walls of indignity
