When Our World View Changes How Do We Safely Navigate To The New Truth
Our world views evolve over time. Bit by bit they are forged from our experiences and will result in a growing list of things to repeat and others to avoid. We’ve built a library of words and phrases that combine to form our life stories, frequently recalled and woven together to define our personality, behaviour and ultimately our identity.
Our world views affect how we look at things and therefore, what we “see”. And if seeing is believing then our truth is created by our world view. So how do we avoid potential cognitive dissonance that living with a new truth can bring?
WHAT CHALLENGES ARE YOGA COMMUNITIES FACING NOW AND HOW CAN THEY THRIVE IN THE NEXT FEW YEARS?
Forced lock-downs, smaller classes and travel bans with or without quarantine combine in a recipe for financial hardship. Be it reduced teaching hours, studio closures or no work at all, and few alternatives, we need community support more than ever. But how do we hold or build community when there is a growing evidence of tribalism and a desperate need to “put your own oxygen mask on first”?
Whatever the answer is, part of the solution will include safe and open communication.
