Three Interventions

Inspired by C. Otto Scharmer, Presencing Institute, MIT

Responding to Divisions of Our Time

Connecting Intercultural Teams

during the British Council DICE project

How can we respond to the painful SYMPTOMS of our time?

Is there ANYTHING we can do as individuals?

The symptoms are created by an Architecture of Separation:

1.Ignorance: Judging when our minds are blocked

2.Hate: Distancing when our hearts are blocked

3.Fear: Disconnecting when our will is blocked
