Peacemaking byAppropriate Development-Spiral Dynamics Nation BuildingMiddle East

Sorry for the late notice. If you didn't get the direct email, you are invited this afternoon Please come if you can. Also notice Laurel's Monday night.
Dr. Don Beck, who assisted Nelson Mandela in creating the nation building strategy chronicled in the movie Invictus and Elza Maalouf, a Lebanese-American futurist and cultural development specialist, will present the Large-scale applications of Spiral Dynamics in their work in Israel and Palestine as an example of how the Spiral Dynamics Integral framework can be applied to affect real world cultural change. SDi offers insight into clearly identifiable manifestations of the social value systems which exist across today’s world and how these living systems arise and evolve in both healthy and unhealthy expressions. Participants will gain insight into the nature of conflict, change, and healing. Attendees will understand why conflicts and social ills still exist in hot spots around the world after years of effort to resolve them and learn to see the entire system that will also be critical in dealing with the growing divides.
The issues in South Africa were not just about race; and the issues in the Middle East are not simply about religion. Until we replace these stigmas and stereotypes based on race and ethnicity the dangerous polarization will increase in the future. Dr. Beck introduces a new narrative that shifts the focus into natural, universal, value-systems differences that cut across all of the historic categories. The latest research, even sophisticated mind/brain profiling, confirms this finding; as do the applications in some of the most difficult places in the world. Participants will learn how to communicate with and align people, processes and purpose in order to facilitate healthy change and social evolution through natural design.
