Education Session – #BeginWithin
Thursday, August 23 1:30–2:30 p.m.
Diversity in society paves the way for richness and variety. However, our proneness to the ignorance and the misunderstanding of the very differences that actually bind us together can drive a wedge between us, by inviting mistrust and stereotyping to raise their ugly heads; bringing with them the inevitabilities of fear, hatred and violence.
In this session, Sarah Khan takes us through the emotions of a career female, wife, mother and a member of a minority community caught up in the vicious cycle of hate, prejudice and stigma. She shares her own emotional and inspirational story about the way she discovered how to deal with society’s greatest maladies by:
- Cultivating inner courage
- Learning to feel with the heart of another
- Understanding the hidden knowledge that binds us all
Join Sarah Khan as she challenges us to look at the practices of our own hearts to inspire and influence positive change in this world.
