Live Session, Friday April 14th
This is an invitation to you, to dive into an exploration of what heart to heart communication with your loved ones and your community could look like at this time.

As we are all being shaken by the events in the world, can we learn to recognise the edges where we touch individual or collective trauma in our relationships and communities? Can we become more present and compassionate rather than turning away when it feels painful or uncomfortable?

Rather than continuing to fit ourselves into a culture that has too little space for our love and care, let's transform our societies from the inside out.

Ww invite you to join our upcoming live session, and to register to the larger online experience this weekend.
Join us for a freely streamed event: How are indigenous and first nations communities responding to COVID-19 and weaving resilience in Sri Lanka, New Zealand and Oceania overall? Island communities are flooded as cyclones hit and sea levels continue to rise. Communities in Sri Lanka remember the Easter killings 2019 that brought the the aftermath of civil war back to their doorsteps. Maori communities in New Zealand continue to guide their government into regenerative action with wisdom and perseverance. Trudy Juriansz from Sri Lanka and Thalea Tane from New Zealand with share their full hearts with us.

Date: Friday, April 14
Time: 9.45 CET, 19.45 NZST

In English with times suited to Asia & Oceania
