The Peace Lab is an experiment in Peace. We explore the assumptions and beliefs that underscore our current reality in our search for those that resonate the frequency of peace. In yoga, we set an intention from which we work the “edge” in order to create peace. In the Peace Lab, we take yoga off the mat and into our lives. During our session, The Shapes that Shape Us, Lesley Southwick-Trask and Kurt Kreuger, in dialogue with Lois Stark and Claudia Welss, will explore the influence shapes have on us, as a species, and us, on them.

In something as simple as shape, we can read the past and catch the future. The very shape of our shelters, social systems, and sacred sites reveals how humans understood the world in different eras. The Web worldview of indigenous cultures showed itself in round thatched huts and sacred stone circles. The Ladder mindset of settled humans evolved from pyramids to skyscrapers, with power at the top. Today’s Network capacities return us to a connective, participatory world. What’s next? New shapes are emerging, informed by space exploration and the ability to measure the coherence of peace, that can enlarge our lens and offer new paths to access peace.
