Remembering and forgetting are essential for self-knowledge. But getting to know another human being and gaining insight into our relationship requires even more an active practice of self-reflection, review and karmic exercises, and meditation. Only then can I transcend my own perspective and come closer to the inner being of the other. Spirit-recalling leads to true living in shared destiny.
We warmly invite you to this conference. It will be translated into German and English. Whisper-translations in other languages may be organized by participants.
