As our traditional culture and philosophical traditions teach us, stability of identity and emotional wellbeing have always been rooted in community; we can’t be well in isolation. But the modernity is speeding up the pace of life, commodifying our basic needs, and turning us into individual consumers in competition with each other. In light of such challenges, how can we reweave the fabric of community to support the wellbeing of people and the Earth? What needs to be questioned? What spiritual transformations are needed? And what kinds of political/economic and Educational shifts can lead us there?
