Manaakitanga – may we value it into the future- without the need of a crisis!
That is a key message from the on-line panel discussion led by Waikato’s Religious Diversity Centre trustee, Marc Rivers, on Monday 6 April 2020. From his Spirit of Work series: ‘Resilience in times of change: Spiritual principles that apply to our current crises’.
During an uplifting online Zoom discussion panel, four speakers from different professions and different spiritual back-grounds responded to questions concerning the challenges of the present pandemic, the tools and approaches they have drawn on to deal with those challenges, and the major opportunities we can take advantage of as a direct result of the pandemic.
our speakers all share on these three questions:
- What the biggest challenge/shock has been for you personally during this COVID-19 pandemic?
- Drawing on your professional and spiritual backgrounds, what tools or approaches have you found helped you the most personally and in your community for dealing with this enormous challenge?
- What are the major opportunities that we can take advantage of in our communities in Auckland/NZ/our companies etc as a direct result of this pandemic?
