Next workshop: Individualism, Friendship, Community: what is true Love?
From Sat. 17 at 9am to Sun. 18 November at 5pm.
Facilitators: Yves and Ursula de Morsier
We live in a society which promotes individualistic values and our economic system (market, welfare state) has totally taken charge of us: either we are consumers or workers or assisted people.
In this context that seems to reject our creativity and reduce us to simple cogs, what are then our potentials and roles as full beings to develop true human relationships of solidarity?
We will investigate how our market exchanges have replaced direct human relationships and reciprocity; or how our possibilities for true relationships with friends seem to be rather limited to leisure time (sharing a meal / holidays / sport games) that remains only at the periphery of our everyday life.
How can we dare to develop links of solidarity which may involve us together in a common work that could build true community?
a community which may allow us to better decide about our daily conditions of life; in which we may, each of us, be valued for who we are (unique); and how can this experience of community become the place where we learn what Love is truly?
Cost: DCH donation plus contributing some food to share.
