What can I do? Optimizing our contribution to a world in need

Participants will use multiple methods – including visualization, guided meditation, reflection and dialogue – to find their own unique answer to the question, “What is my optimal contribution?”

We are all painfully aware of the many dangers facing our societies and our world, and that awareness calls forth a desire to contribute. As integral practitioners, we know that optimal contributions will be multidimensional, considering all quadrants, and encouraging not only social change but also healing and maturation that is both psychological and spiritual, individual and collective. The key questions for each of us then become, “What can I do?” and “What is my optimal contribution?” In this workshop, participants will use multiple methods – including visualization, guided meditation, reflection and dialogue – to explore these questions and to find their own unique contributions.
