Power & Care (www.powerandcare.org) is a two and a half day Mind and Life Dialogue of leading experts with His Holiness the Dalai Lama, organized by Mind & Life Europe (www.mindandlife-europe.org), with the support of Emergences (www.emergences.org) from September 9-11 at the BOZAR Center for Fine Arts in Belgium.
How can these two primal forces – power and care – be conscientiously and fruitfully allied, and engender projects and actions that promote the flourishing of living beings and of our environment?
The program includes perspectives from the natural sciences, anthropology, psychology, politics, economics and the world’s contemplative traditions. A selection of experiential workshops will enable participants to work on the dynamics of power and care within themselves. An artistic performance will be offered on the first evening.
