Sunday is 10-10-10 and...
Sunday is 10-10-10 and I'm going to be spending part of the day participating in (and leading during) The World Day of Interconnectedness.
The idea behind the World Day of Interconnectedness emerges in almost every spiritual tradition: that we are one body. When one part of the body aches, the rest of the body feels it. When the rest of the body does not feel the ache, it's an indicator of impending death. WDI draws (and seeks to spread) hope from the opportunity to realize our potential as humans - together.
You can view an inspiring video by Rabbi Awraham Soetendorp on the topic by visiting the WDI website. Rabbi Soetendorp is an award-winning human rights advocate, lecturer, writer, environmental activist and champion of civil society. In addition, on the WDI site you can find out about simple actions through which you can become part of the movement toward Interconnectedness.
In support of WDI 101010, Leaders Cafe will host a 24-hour leadership webinar marathon - a webinarathon. We will have guest speakers from around the world talking and sharing the new kind of interconnected leadership - much needed for the 21st Century.
Details of the WDI 101010 and a full schedule of speakers can be found here.
The 24-hour webinar marathon will start in New Zealand/Australia - moving to Asia - then Europe and finally finishing in the USA, running from midnight GMT (Greenwich Mean Time) until midnight on 10-10-10. Here in the Eastern US the webinar start time translates to 8:00 p.m. Saturday evening.
You can drop in to any of the webinars at any time and for as many sessions as you wish. Please join Leaders Cafe and the World Day of Interconnectedness. The challenges we face as humans are big, but we can prevail when we work together toward developing our full potential. Hope to see you there.
