A Dialogue: Bringing Love and Justice to Resolving the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict, Hosted by Eligar Sadeh
Sponsored by Lemon Tree Boulder and Boulder J Street
A Love and Justice circle employs empathic and compassionate listening to explore A PATH TO A WORLD OF LOVE AND JUSTICE.
While people yearn for a different kind of world—one of love, kindness, compassion, empathy, generosity, and justice for all people and the planet—they suppress those yearnings because they believe that this is not the way the world works. They think that the way the world works is only political and economic. How the world works though is much more spiritually and emotionally rooted.
The intent of this Love and Justice circle is to explore spiritual and emotional thoughts and feelings on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict to address how to move from the present to a loving and just resolution to the conflict and how that can be manifested in the world.
What are the steps we should be taking to lead us from the present to a loving and just resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict?
Based on your understanding of a world of love and justice how would you apply that to an area of concern with regard to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict?
What organization can you support to share ideas of love and justice for the Israeli-Palestinian conflict? Why do you support the organization? What are areas of shared vision and ideas?
