Join us on Wednesday 29th January as we explore INNER ACTIVISM and how going on a world peace march without addressing the conflicts within ourselves and in our own lives, does not bring peace. Doing inner work is activism too!
We will be discussing how the demon we really need to wrestle with (as Jacob did in the Bible) is not the serial killer or mass murderer (those are best left to law enforcement and the FBI) but the toxic belief that there are “two kinds of people”: good people and bad people, superior races and inferior races, people like me and people different from me: “Us and Them”. That this way of thinking has caused some of the greatest atrocities in human history and unless we police our own consciousness and activate our Inner FBI (as it were) all of us carry within us the seeds of such things occurring again.
For diseases of the imagination – the cure is also found in the imagination
Does imagination shape reality or does reality shape our imagination?
-Some quotes from Imelda Almqvist’s upcoming book: Medicine of the Imagination, Dwelling in Possibility, published on 30 October 2020
This interview will be recorded LIVE via Zoom, and will provide the opportunity to ask Imelda questions at the end.
