Imagination II #BlackLivesMatter
We had planned the UnConference this week to be our session on the topic of Imagination. But we can’t ignore the events happening in the United States. As we seek to process the tragic deaths of George Floyd and countless others, we want to let our members know that we stand with you in solidarity as you experience the heaviness of this centuries-old problem and look for ways to create change.
So this Thursday June 4th (8-10pm CET), The UnConference will be dedicated to #BlackLivesMatter. An honest, challenging conversation about race so we can learn from each other to be better.
We will deep dive into what we can do personally, as a community, as organizations and globally to UNLEARN, consciously and unconsciously, what we no longer want for our generation and future generations, EMPATHIZE with those who are suffering and CREATE a new way of being, individually and collectively, with love and consciousness.
Questioner: How should we treat others? Ramana Maharshi: There are no others.
For this event, our special guests are:
– Sujith Ravindran (founder of the BEING abundance movement, author, Indian mystic for 40 years, co-founder Being At Full Potential)
– Lisanne Buik (multi-disciplinary artist and futures designer shown a.o. in Van Gogh Museum in 2019)
– Ebyän Chimba (multi-disciplinary artist and student & teacher of Mysticism)
– Manish Jain (co-founder of the Swaraj University, leading planetary voice for de-schooling our lives)
We hope to see you there!
“I believe in the transience of nature. I believe that beyond the individual entities of each living being, there is a unity that defines all of us collectively” – Sujith Ravindran
“I wholeheartedly believe that the uncertainty, disgrace and polarity of our current day provides an opportunity to find grace in ourselves and reconnect to nature. To rise up to protect a future that serves all (of life) by prototyping new operating systems for society and self that emulate the laws of nature” – Lisanne Buik.
