CBD 2023: Embodying Beloved Community with Gabriel Wilson, MEd

October 30, 2023 | 10:30am - 11:45am

This talk will explore the spiritual and personal development dimensions of Beloved Community, as particularly espoused and lived through the example of late US congressman John Lewis. We’ll inquire into (1) our polarized culture (2) beloved community as an antidote to us-them dynamics (3) practices that can grow us into instruments of beloved community.

This workshop is part of a two session series offered by Gabriel Wilson, MEd as part of the 2023 Contemplation by Design Summit. Attendees may attend one or both of Gabriel's sessions, as well as other session in the Summit.
