Social Dynamics in the Spiritual Community

A Seminar navigating the psycho-dynamics of ISKCON, a practical approach to cultivating compassion.

This is a seminar by Tulasi Krishna Devi Dasi exploring social and psychological problems from a sastric and clinical perspective, with the aim of improving relationships within the ISKCON community. By better understanding what drives troublesome behaviors and thought patterns, we can be more tolerant of ourselves and others. By seeing ourselves as interconnected to others through Krishna, we can tap into deeper compassion and appreciation.  We will discuss the importance of healthy devotee relationships as a means for healing and spiritual growth, and how Srila Prabhupada has given us the model and the tools with which to sustain a loving community to practice bhakti together.
