Institute 3: Re-Membering Right Relationship
The lesson - and challenge - of the 21st century is recognition that all life is inter-dependent. There is only one of us, and everything we think, say, and do affects the whole, meaning we are all and always in relationship. The choices we make, then, are only and ever about the quality of relationship. This workshop explores tools for consciously choosing and creating relationships that foster the well-being of all parties, and indeed of ‘all our relations. This is an experiential workshop using a variety of modalities to explore Right Relationship. We will focus on energy work, dialogue, reconciliation, and ritual, identifying success factors as well how to dissolve or transform obstacles. Attention will mostly be on inter-group relations, but will touch on inter- and intra-personal as well, in all cases using the participants’ own experiences as a laboratory for shared learning. The day will range from spirit to strategy, and from inspiration to perspiration. When we re-member, or put back together again the truth of our connectedness, we enliven ourselves and each other and make a new world possible. Come prepared to play. Convened by Louise Diamond, Ph.D. (Experiential, Lecture, Discussion).
