“Suppose we were able to share meanings freely without a compulsive urge to impose our view or conform to those of others and without distortion and self-deception. Would this not constitute a real revolution in culture?”

David Bohm

Renowned theoretical physicist and philosopher David Bohm believed there was a better way for humanity to discover meaning and to achieve harmony. He identified creative dialogue, a sharing of assumptions and understanding, as a means by which the individual and society as a whole, can learn more about themselves and others, and achieve a renewed sense of purpose. We challenge attendees to think past their preconceived notions, and consider ideas both objectively and subjectively while utilizing empathy.
