Choosing Peace Instead
In a speech to the United Nations, Dr. Bruce Lipton (Biologist) and Dr. Gregg Braden (Geologist) raised the question, “How will we learn to live in an environment that is constantly changing? Earth will not go back to the way it was.”
They identified three cycles that are converging as the current drivers of evolution: human conflict, climate change and economics. Their conclusion is that the adoption of a new paradigm is the only way human beings can meet the challenges of these evolutionary cycles.
Lipton and Braden suggest the old Darwinian paradigm of “survival of the fittest,” competition, individual (separate) interests must give way to a new paradigm of cooperation. This new paradigm would bring individuals together into a new community. “We came from nature. We must learn to live in harmony with the environment…” and each other. They identify cooperation as the “new science.”
“A garden is not a battleground. Battle has destroyed the garden.
Peace is what is requited to bring it back again.”
Can we find peace in a world that seems overwhelmed by ecological, cultural, political and economic threats? How serious are we about having peace? Isn’t fear a primary driver behind the paradigm of competition and separate interests?
This workshop, consisting of 2 sessions, will help participants:
Examine the process of choosing peace by looking at the role fear plays in diminishing our experience of peace. Identify the belief system of fear that underlies all non-peaceful choices. Explore the inseparable components of peace: trust, belonging, interconnectedness and faith.
