We're all witnessing various forms of polarization during these crazy times. Whether it is varying views regarding the vaccine, masks, vaccine passports, lockdowns, politics, elections, BLM, abortion ... or anything else, the negative impact can be felt by all. Will North America or other parts of the world ever be the same again? Is the gradual growth of mindfulness one way that can help bring people together and avoid the ongoing divides and potential future crises? Join us for an insightful discussion on Oct 17th. If more than 6 participants join, we may break out into smaller groups for part of the evening. Please watch some of the videos or read some of the articles below in preparation for a great discussion!
