Recovering Coherency in Politics and Society through Dialogue

with Glenn Parry 

August 2 at 18:00 (CEST) for a 2-hour live session  

The main reason we are divided in politics is not only polarization between parties, or fragmentation within the parties, but because of how we think. We tend to think in partial fragments, not in contextual wholes. David Bohm was keenly aware of this. Bohm was also aware that this lack of coherency was not necessarily the case in Indigenous cultures that have a history of shared meaning and participatory consciousness. In the USA, the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) Confederacy had a profound effect on the very idea to unite the states and also on the foundational values of liberty, equality, and natural rights enshrined in the US Constitution—and then on the unwritten rules of engagement that govern political protocols. The latter influence arguably was what prevented the country from lapsing into fascism, at least until now. Sadly, authoritarian governments are now on the rise across the globe. In honor of David Bohm’s far-reaching vision, how do we begin to restore coherency in government and society? How do we make America and the world sacred again?

Glenn Aparicio Parry, PhD, of Basque, Aragon Spanish, and Jewish descent, is the author of Original Politics: Making America Sacred Again (SelectBooks, 2020) and Original Thinking: A Radical Revisioning of Time, Humanity, and Nature (North Atlantic Press, 2015). Parry is an educator, ecopsychologist, and political philosopher whose passion is to reform thinking and education into a coherent, cohesive whole. The founder and past president of the SEED Institute, Parry is currently the president of the think tank: Circle for Original Thinking. Parry organized and participated in the groundbreaking Language of Spirit Conferences from 1999 – 2011 that brought together Native and Western scientists in dialogue, moderated by Leroy Little Bear. He has appeared in several documentary films, including Journey to Turtle Island, a biographic piece exploring David Peat’s life and participation in the dialogue circles by Spanish filmmaker Miryam Servet. Parry is a  member of the Institute of Noetic Sciences and the Theosophical Society as part of a life-long interest in bridging the arts and sciences.

All sessions will last for approximately 2 hours, and will be held over zoom.us. The session structure may vary from speaker to speaker, but in general participants will have the opportunity to ask questions of the presenter and in some cases there will be breakaway discussion groups.

Each session will be hosted by a member of the Pari Center Team, to ensure that the call is running smoothly and assist anyone experiencing technical problems.

During the presentations, we ask participants to turn off their microphone to ensure better quality audio. For this reason, the host may mute a participant’s audio. This is not to silence a participant’s voice, but to ensure an overall good audio quality. If a participant would like to ask a question or make a contribution to the discussion, they can use the ‘raise your hand’ tool in the chat, and then are welcome to turn on their microphone.

We invite all participants to turn on their video camera, as we believe that seeing everyone creates an inclusive educational environment. However, if any participant is uncomfortable, they are free to turn off the camera.

All sessions will be recorded for archival purposes. The recordings will not include the possible breakout-room discussions, but only the speaker’s presentation, follow-up discussions and Q&A. If a participant does not feel comfortable being recorded, we invite that participant to turn off their video and audio throughout the session. These recordings are available to anyone who has purchased a ticket for an attended session, or for a session they have paid for but were unable to attend. If a participant would like to access to the recording, please email us at: eleanor@paricenter.com
