CSP-AP

The Caux Scholar Program – Asia Plateau 2017 (CSP-AP) was an impressive group. This is the second year I taught in CSP-AP and I was left convinced that the program and the participants will have an impact when they return to their communities. The group bonded more quickly than in the first year I taught and had a sense of responsibility that was beyond their years.

Cultivating cultural agility

We are shaped by culture. The context of our personal identity is the culture we swim in. We are not often aware of this until we encounter those who are different from us, who are not part of our in-group. By meeting and understanding individuals from other cultures, we can gain an important understanding of our self, as well as the other. On December 16, the DC Interfaith Network, supported by Initiatives of Change, held a workshop on "Cultivating cultural agility" in Washington, DC.
