Interdependence and the idea of Peace and Conflicts
Postgraduation program on Peace and Conflict Transformation based on emotional balance, organized by Paz & Mente Brazil
The practice of awakening the heart (bodhicitta) is not a religious endeavor, but rather a first person exploration of what is possible when we begin to unfold our greatest human potential by stepping out of our habituated, fixated mindsets into a deeper understanding of the interdependence of all things. It provides direct and practical means for directly facing some basic human questions: How do we habituate our heart to stay open? How do we respond to the suffering we encounter in the world without getting overwhelmed or rigidly trying to fix it? What is the difference between fixing and healing? This practice also provides us with teachings on how to make an aspiration, how to work with difficult situations, how to deepen our insight through meditation, and how to develop genuine altruism.
The weekend will include teachings and meditation practice and lively discussions are sure to happen, too!
