Thank you for visiting the In-Depth Perception blog. My name is Lisa Bracken, and I am your host contributor. I am a lecturer, speaker, communications consultant and author of most recently: You And What Army? How to Neutralize Conflict and Negotiate Justice for the Totally Outgunned, Inwardly Timid, Burnt Out or Socially Defunct, a field guide to conflict resolution and social justice. The book is available in paperback from any US book seller, or as a digital download from Amazon. If you’d like to learn more about me or this book, please visit: www.youandwhatarmybook.com
In-Depth Perception explores current events and controversies through diverse opinion, discussion and debate from myself, featured guest commentators and contributing visitors to the site.
Each week I select converging current events in the news which appear to reveal a much deeper message about our selves and our world. I then explore the revelation here, in an ‘every-other-week’ post.
I welcome the enriched potential of diverse thought, so naturally invite others to contribute their own perspectives – whether based on the convergence I’ve noticed, or a different convergence they have noticed.
We tend to only notice others, events, new information… when we are receptive to it based on some sort of need coincident with when it’s presented. That can challenge us to see the broader picture through our fog of self-interest and distraction.
I believe strongly in the notion that we are all connected in subtle ways through our thoughts, our actions… our correlative existences.
So what if we took two of the things we notice most during the course of a week and, as a conscious act, examined the relationship between them? Might we learn something more about ourselves and our world? I think so.
It’s a simple idea, but a useful exercise in broadening our perception and our assumptions. Everything is relative. So, such an examination might even steer us to rethink what we thought we knew.
This blog is a component of my 30-minute weekly blogtalk radio program entitled “In-Depth Perception”. On that program, I discuss the weekly convergence and interview movers, shakers and community shapers who, through their insights and actions, are actively contributing to converging events by helping enhance our collective opportunities and shared potential.
Please join us for our live, on-air discussion, every other Thursday at 3:30 pm mt on blogtalkradio: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/indepthperception !
I announce each new show just before it airs via a ‘Tweet’ @BrackenLisa
