    MSR & Friends 2020: Transforming Consciousness through Practices that Give People a Direct Experience of Connectedness

    Sunday August 9th 8-10pm eastern US

    A co-created session organized by Chris Laszlo with Stacie Chappell, Judi Neal, Julia Storberg-Walker, Jyoti Bachani, Denise M. Breaux-Soignet, Nicolaus Burton, Duysal Askun Celik, Tom Elwood Culham, Payal Kumar, Elizabeth Luckman, Joan F. Marques, Benito Teehankee, and Charles T. Tackney

    This fully synchronous session is designed to give people an experience of connectedness. Participants choose from a range of direct-intuitive practices-including meditation, art (zentangle), nature immersion (online version available), and dance-to increase awareness of how their actions impact others and the world around them. The convergence of science and spirituality will help frame the conversation on how such practices transform a person's consciousness. Using this frame, participants will be invited to de-brief their practice experience. MSR Executive Committee members will respond with their own contributions. The session explores transforming consciousness through direct-intuitive practices as the highest point of leverage for systemic social innovation.
