Interbeing Project: Next steps

After this Fall 2019 Interbeing project, I aspire to…

  • take deep breaths more frequently
  • develop my own clear definition of interbeing
  • intertwine the materials that I have learned into my own daily life and the spaces that I work in
  • be just as forgiving to myself as I am towards other people
  • experience the world for what it is and not based upon how I’ve drawn and colored within its lines
  • embrace the wisdom that growth is never linear, never lonesome, and neverending
  • use interbeing to think about my daily actions
  • look beyond hegemonic cultures to learn more about interbeing and its applications
  • take care of my body and suffering
  • to relearn my native tongue in hopes it will reconnect me to my roots,
  • to learn my family history to better understand my ancestors,
  • to build reciprocal connections with the Tongva people and the Tongva land I am hosted on,
  • to appreciate the relationships I have to their fullest extent.
  • reduce unneeded consumption
  • stick to my practice even when leaving the umbrella/support of this class
  • be more reflective about my own practices and relationships.
  • spend intentional time each day with Mthat other Earth.
  • think more deeply about the ways in which I already am practicing interbeing.
  • explore interbeing more thoroughly with time.
  • remember that I am not alone in practicing mindfulness and interbeing.
  • to continue to see beauty in all things.

For all participants, I hope…

  • that our paths can cross again after this class is done.
  • that we can continue practicing mindfulness in our daily lives.
  • for moments of joy and inner and outer harmony.
  • that as we continue to love and help others, we can receive the same in kind
  • for grounding, acceptance, and peace within our own lives and our own communities.
  •  we accept and forgive ourselves for past mistakes,
    that the harm regretfully done to others can be opportunities for reflection and
    understanding for us to heal.
  • that we can think of each other from time to time, as figures of the present, not the past, and that we can smile when we do
  • that our pain and suffering can be recycled into nourishment, and
    we will allow ourselves to transform our pain, anger, and resentment into compost.
