It is important to recognize and teach the history and roots of human oppression. Consequently our curriculum focuses on finding and teaching innovative ways to relate to others based on that ever-evolving knowledge, and how our role in the oppression of others strips the world of unity. Although people cannot control emotions they can learn to face them with resilience and empathy, this is at the core of what we teach. It’s about constantly listening and re-thinking approaches.
Human relations and interaction are a journey, not a destination. As a result as the world evolves, so does our process and curriculum. Most importantly, true harmony is daily work. For that reason we seek to elevate consciousness as we gain a deeper understanding of people and the way they process the world. As we learn, we continue to re-envision, rebuild, and reshape ways to approach each other in order to build the world we all envision as harmonious.
Our organizational goal is to guide people to live in a state of effective communication and de-biasing. Therefore, this starts by building real, deep, and meaningful relationships across cultures, overcoming each challenge the bring as each hurdle arises. Through this process, together we can build true bonds in the community prepared to effect positive change in the world. Celebrating milestones is great, but it is also important to push forward and re-think and re-start the process once again if necessary.
