Watch Recording: Inspiring Minds: Live Conversations Offering Wisdom for Our Time
Unresolved trauma and harmful belief systems are handed down through generations, perpetuating racial and social injustice and cycles of violence. In this episode, we’ll explore the African philosophy of Ubuntu, which laid the groundwork for healing in the aftermath of apartheid in South Africa. Presenters Pumla Gobodo-Madikizela and Aaron Stern will share innovative programs and approaches designed to nurture meaningful dialogue, break down barriers, and facilitate personal transformation aimed at healing the harmful legacies of the past. Along with a spoken word piece from Hawah Kasat, the episode will explore:
- How to create safe spaces where intergenerational healing can take place, rooted in an understanding of our interconnection?
- What is the role of wisdom traditions, storytelling, and the arts in building resilience and leadership skills among today’s youth?
