Mindful Musings

Stories are a great way to help process our own feelings of disturbance. Stories are a launching pad for needed conversations, for listening, for sharing. In these difficult times, we are witnesses of violence in so many forms. What can we do to help ourselves and others? 

Eth-Noh-Tec has reconfigured our online programs. We will be presenting every other month instead of monthly, and we are no longer Storytelling with Eth-Noh-Tec. 

We are now Mindful Musings. As such, we will be offering stories and guest presenters to address the many musings of our minds.

Our first in 2024's series aired on March 1st
Who: Guest storyteller/author: Noa Baum

Stories for peace

Program:
• Stories by Eth-Noh-Tec: Sufi's "Rumor" and China's "The Clam, the Crane and the Fisherman".
• Reading by Noa Baum: Excerpts from her book "Land Twice Promised" - her conversations as a mother with a Palestinian mother.
• Short documentary: "Combatants of Peace"
• Conversation
• A song

 

Our program is a continuation of our November program on the Palestine-Israel war. Our focus this time will be how we can support peace vs. the too oft polarized positions we too easily take. The world, our very own lives are not black or white, yes or no, good or bad, and so on. Polarized positions do not ever solve a problem.

By choosing peace, of course the horrors of the war remain real, but we do not add to the violence that taking sides can result in.

Let us learn more about the Palestinians and Jews who have been working together to create peace, to build bridges, to stop war and hate between their two peoples and places.

Let us work together as well. Let us be inspired to look into ways we too can support peace.

As Gandhi said: “Be the change you are trying to create."

As Martin Luther King Jr. said: “I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.”
