IMAGINE!

IMAGINE!

Dear all,

Reading through these posts again gives me the impression that a certain degree of uncertainty about the future has simmered through our academic discussions. Many of our thoughts are about conflict that exists in society, and how that stems from forms of oppression and inequality across the board. In the end, I believe it’s going to be about finding ways to work together, Here are some inspiring words:


EIL

“I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge –
That myth is more potent than history,
I believe that dreams are more powerful than facts –
That hope always triumphs over experience –
That laughter is the only cure for grief.
And I believe that love is stronger than death.”

The following is part of an interesting webpage that you can read by clicking on: Envisioning

If you like audio files, here is one from a long discussion about the Maire Dugan’s dialogue and envisioning workshops. Most involved people of different cultures and/or races, although the techniques apply in many other situations as well.

Safe travelles!
