Contemplating 400 Years of Inequality
September 27, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm MDT
An Interactive Seminar with Catherine Pawasarat Sensei
Online Classes: 3pm-5:00pm, Sept 27th, 2020
Why this Course?
There has been unprecedented acceleration of change since the Industrial revolution. Along with it, we see a greater number of fracturing in people’s psyches and a greater number of inequality in wealth distribution. According to a study from Harvard university, most of the wealth in the US is in the top 20% of the population, particularly affecting black, indigenous, and people of colour.
Our international sangha is about growing people to be compassionate and loving beings and welcoming all beings to the banquet as guests. As we teach compassionate communication, it is important we do our own work around Social Justice as awakening beings.
What You’ll Learn
Doug and Catherine Sensei began teaching from The Fifth Discipline in 2013, which focused on managing and leading change, building adaptive organizations that can cope with an increasingly connected and volatile world. Little did we know that they were preparing us for the world we live in today, whether we are in Canada, Japan, England or Germany.
To help you respond to these times, Catherine Sensei is offering a contemplative session cultivating presence and supporting the global sangha with understanding structural inequality through a mindfulness-based and contemplative approach. To better be of service to more people, it also gives us an opportunity to study our implicit bias in a system that favours a certain group or groups over others.
Meet the Teacher
Catherine Sensei met Dr. Angel Acosta last year at a conference called Timeless Wisdom, Timely Action. Dr. Acosta works to bridge the fields of leadership, social justice & mindfulness. Catherine really enjoyed the person he is and his work, and studied with him on how to use the 400 Years Timeline effectively.
Fees and Dāna
