Ubuntu is is the essential truth of inter-being and interdependent co-arising. Learn about ways to celebrate INTERdependence Day and to participate in the co-creation of the Novasutras movement.
As an expansion of our traditional Solstice celebration, Novasutras is partnering with the organizers of World Unity Week. Events begin June 20th, and go on through the 27th, with topics of climate action, global peace partnerships, interfaith harmony, interracial justice, and the future we want to create together.
Mindfulness and meditation practices can work in service to ubuntu, by improving emotional resilience and compassionate awareness for healing divisions between people.
What lessons are we learning from this pandemic that can help us deal with challenges to come? How does the pandemic affect our response to ongoing crises like climate change? Join Novasutras Daily Discussions, as we help each other make sense of our world, and develop strategies for increasing agaya and ubuntu emerging from the disruption.
We've made a short video illustrating some alternatives to hugs and handshakes, that can allow us to keep our distance physically (important for slowing the spread of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19) while acknowledging our emotional and spiritual connections. Two options to share agaya & ubuntu while remaining safe during an epidemic include the "Namaste" gesture (anjali mudra) and the "heart connection" gesture.
