January – March 2023
We are used to seeing ourselves as individuals, but if we look deeper, the boundary with the world around us is not so sharp at all. As humans, we are embedded in a web of relationships: we are connected to our family, friends and colleagues, but - as the corona pandemic clearly showed - also with people on the other side of the world that we do not know at all. And even with all the other beings on this planet.
Our relationships also run through time, connecting us to our ancestors and future generations. Zen teacher Thich Nhat Hanh coined the term 'interbeing' to indicate this intrinsic connection. What does a connected life look like? And what does this mean for our love, friendship and family relationships?
Nov – Dec 2022
Theme: 'Crisis as an opportunity'
We live in a challenging time. For many of us, the current way of life is difficult and sometimes even unsustainable. Humanity as a whole is at a crossroads; do we continue on the old familiar, but for many unlucky, road – or do we take a new path? How do you distance yourself from that which is comfortable and familiar? And what will that other interpretation be?
It can also chafe in our personal environment and sometimes the need arises to let go and explore new paths. A crisis often also offers opportunities. What does a wise and compassionate life mean today? What should we do to give our consciousness new insights and how can these help reshape our lives?
