The Power of the Powerless - Facilitator: Yves de Morsier
Inspired by a text by Vaclav Havel (ex-"dissident" and ex-President of the Czech Republic)

Our true power is not imposing; it relies on our ability to live in the Truth. It is not very different if we live under a totalitarian system or if we live in a materialistic society, whether our search is focused on a social-political level or on a metaphysicalspiritual path. The price to pay is certainly not the same in these different cases, but these are the same desires and forms of attachment that prevent us from finding simplicity and freedom. When we are free to live in the Truth, we acquire the simple power of the powerless.
We will investigate how to find a leading vision or guide for our life and we will search together for tools how to live in the Truth and to become free.
Cost: DCH donation plus contributing some food to share.
