At the most fundamental, biological, level, learning is the process of adapting to one's environment in ways that promote survival.
Which means that all of humanity is currently facing a learning task of tremendous proportions.
One of the things I've heard most often during the past week, is that we can't know how to adapt, because we are dealing with an unprecedented situation that has many unknown factors. As a society, we have no prior knowledge of how to deal with this pandemic.
In our community discussion last Saturday, we came to the realization that while we don't have the answers, we do have an important question:
What is the most helpful MINDSET we can adopt,
as individuals and as communities,
to cope with the tremendous learning challenge we all now face?
We decided that this coming Saturday,
we will use the format and structure of a mindset change course to guide our discussion of these issues.
Following the format of a mindset-change course, here's what we will discuss:
Come join the discussion on Saturday.
I'll limit it to two hours
(if we need more time, we can continue the following week).
Learn how to set up a mindset change course by creating one together as a community.
Let's brainstorm and create synergy as we focus on discovering helpful, effective ways to contribute to positive change in the face of this crisis.
I can't think of a deeper, or more relevant, definition of "learning" than that. Hope to see you at the meeting!
