Our Response to Natural Drives (Building Cross-Cultural Awareness)

December 18, 2020 at 6:30 am - 7:30 am PST

This Integral Life Experience is only available to the supporting members

How important is leisure to you? Should society have more lax norms concerning casual sex? Are you surrounded mostly by extroverts? Is optimism a good thing? In this final session of the series, we will explore the link between culture and our subjective sense of well-being. Perhaps even more explicitly than other human dilemmas, Indulgence vs. Restraint (IVR) operates at a very instinctive (visceral) level, i.e. how we respond to our natural drives depends largely on how our group – family, school, church or nation – taught us from a very early age. Needless to say, we use the same instincts to form expectations regarding how others should behave, especially during a time when virtually all of us have been deprived of experiences we deem pleasurable. As we’ve done in previous sessions, we will jointly practice and reflect on becoming more aware of our somatic and emotional response to these phenomena.
