How do we remember unity, peace, and collaboration when engaging with people who hold political, social, and religious views that are different from ours?
How do we remember unity, peace, and collaboration when engaging with people who hold political, social, and religious views that are different from ours – without vilifying or "othering" them in our minds? How can we learn to “see with the heart” and engage in curious, constructive dialogue, promoting connection, acceptance, and a mutual service to all life? In this age of positionality and divisiveness, meditation offers a path back to seeing clearly with the heart. In the paradigm of individualism, it becomes easy to "other" those who are different from us, and to view power as "power over" those others. With interdependence as the foundation of human existence, true power lies in our capacity for collaboration, relational intelligence, humility, and to give and receive love, moment-by-moment, across assumed lines and barriers. Join Dharma teacher and author Deborah Eden Tull for a Friday evening talk and a day-long retreat on Saturday, both offered remotely, to enable people from different geographic locations to join in conscious community. Through meditation, relational mindfulness, reflective writing, and group discussion, we will explore the untold potentials that open to us when we begin to cultivate a "we" consciousness, which celebrates interconnection and both the human and more-than-human world.
