Peace Starts at Home: Bringing love, truth, and courage to your relationships (and yourself), in Mexico

January 29, 2016 - January 31, 2016

Description

When asked how we can create peace, the Dalai Lama suggested that we start at home. Bringing peace to our closest relationships means making an everyday commitment to love, truth, and courage – the building blocks of transformative nonviolence. If we can do this at home, where the stakes are often very high, we can increase our ability to meet all the challenges of life with empathy and authenticity.

Imagine what this could be. Imagine sweet, open dialogue in all your relationships, both intimate and otherwise. Imagine full compassion for yourself, accepting your humanity in moments of challenge. Imagine the freedom to choose, in every moment, how you want to meet life. Imagine the power of responding empathically to those around you. Imagine expanding outward from your personal life and embodying these qualities in the world.

The content we explore will emerge from the challenges and opportunities participants bring with them. We’re likely to focus on:

  • Dissolving the apparent conflict between authenticity and care for others
  • Transforming the legacy of separation, scarcity, and powerlessness to embrace a commitment to everyone’s well-being
  • Learning to ask for all we want and to remain open to hearing no
  • Creating magic by encountering our own and each other’s essential humanity
  • Finding freedom and power in responding empathically in challenging circumstances
  • Stepping into radical self-acceptance along the way.
