Symphony of Minds: Feeling Our Way to a Vibrant Future It is a webinar co-sponsored by International 5G discontinued and the Global Network Against Weapons and Nuclear Energy in Space. The webinar will bring together people from various fields and advocacy groups to share and nurture minds and hearts as we try to understand these seemingly turbulent and confusing times, and get a feel for what may appear on the horizon.
It is clear and tangible that the world is now going through a crisis on many different fronts. Some of the issues we face now touch almost every one of us deeply and very personally: 5G, climate change, war, Covid, vaccines, satellites, physical and mental health epidemics, political polarization, racism, nuclear weapons, globalization, etc. But there is a silver lining. Crises are so poignant that they seem to be quickly following us toward a much-needed global awakening, reckoning, and rethinking where we’re headed.
As people who care deeply about the state of the world, we spend a lot of our time opposing what is wrong. In doing so, we may unintentionally give strength to who we are don’t do We want, rather than imagine, to show and empower what we are Act Wants.
This webinar is an opportunity to connect arms with advocacy groups and other thinkers, and together envision the kind of world we want.
The shared core values of what we work for can help reduce barriers between advocacy silos and help grow a grassroots movement for global recovery.
So, what kind of future do we want? Having come to the end of their useful lives, do cultural and societal norms give way to new habits and perspectives that better serve the whole of life? Is our extractive view of the bounty of the earth sustainable and does it nourish our souls? Do our institutions encourage the highest potential and unique contributions of each of us, or do they numb us and blindly pit us against one another? Will the changes be mandatory or will they appear organically as we wake up? Can we restore life at the local level in the face of the relentless globalization towards which our civilization appears to be heading? Can we find the balance? How can we overcome the racism, prejudice and “otherness” that are ingrained in our cultures? Should a civilization that uses profit and competition as “wind in our sails” be replaced by one that rides through time with the sweet scent of gratitude? Will labor pains inevitably accompany tremendous suffering as the new world is crowned, or will the excitement of what lies ahead inspire us to “breathe in” the process and welcome the new?
This webinar is intended to be one of the many small steps people around the world are taking to address what went wrong that got us into this abyss; What we do now. And where might we go from here to reach a turning point in global healing and awakening.
