Global Social Witnessing_Conference.Lab
Unit 1 “The Science of Witnessing”: recorded dialogues available from February 15th
Unit 2 “Art as GSW”: March 15th – 18th in 2021

These two units are parts of Master of Arts in Global Social Witnessing at Ubiquity University

Global Social Witnessing  is the emergent human capacity to mindfully attend to global events with an embodied awareness, thereby creating an inner world space mirroring these events.

You want to explore global social realities though science and art? 
You want to generate compassion, awareness and feel more interconnected? 
You want to be able to stay in touch with your natural sense of possibility and vision? 
You want to be able to hold the tension between reality and possibility? 
You want to be able to trust in your visions beyond your personal lifetime? 
You want to lean into an embodied practise of compassionate global citizenship?

Goal of the GSW_Conference.Lab 2021

The GSW_Conference.Lab 2021 will provide a space where diverse perspectives/experiences from artists, scientists, spiritual practitioners, and political activists will inspire participants to better understand and embody GSW within their mind, heart, and body.  Throughout the lab, we will co-create new ideas, strategies, tools, and energy to help us become mature global citizens in our times of disruption and transformation.

Explore global social realities with international artists and scientists
Generate compassionate awareness and interconnectedness while deepening your felt sense as a global human
Stay in touch with a natural sense of possibility and vision to tune into the sweet spot between awareness, change and activism 
Hold the tension between reality and possibility to unfold your potential in the world 
Witness that some possibilities may not be realized in one’s own lifetime to enable a deep trust and commitment regardless of outcomes 
Lean into an embodied practice of compassionate global citizenship
…. Let’s co-create global social witnessing! 

Join us at the Global Social Witnessing_Conference.Lab 2021 in Witten/Herdecke University!
