Join the April Pachamama Alliance Global Call, a 75-Minute conference call for this global community.
This call will consist of breakout discussions of one of the Principles of Spiritual Leadership from Will Keepin, Co-founder of the Satyana Institute: don't demonize your adversaries.
People respond to arrogance with their own arrogance, which leads to polarization. The ideal is to constantly entertain alternative points of view so that you move from arrogance to inquiry, and you then have no need to demonize your opponents. This is hard to do, as we often feel very certain about what we think we know, and the injustices we see. As John Stuart Mill said, "In all forms of human debate, both parties tend to be correct in what they affirm, and wrong in what they deny." Going into an adversarial situation, we can be aware of the correctness of what we are affirming, but there is usually a kernel of truth-however small-in what is being affirmed by our opponent. We need to be especially mindful about what we deny, because this is often where our blind spots will be.
These calls are designed to bring together Pachamama Alliance participants, leaders, and supporters who are actively engaged in creating a shift in humanity to a worldview that honors and sustains life. By coming together and grounding in this vision, you will leave the call feeling inspired and supported in your work.
