In the somber landscape of today's world, the sad realities of wars persist on both global and interpersonal fronts, casting a shadow over the human experience. Globally, nations grapple with the devastating consequences of armed conflicts, leaving communities shattered, economies crippled, and countless lives irrevocably changed. On a more intimate scale, individuals find themselves entangled in personal battles, be it ideological differences, familial disputes, or struggles for personal validation. The toll of these conflicts leaves scars that run deep, eroding the fabric of trust and understanding. In the midst of these sad realities, we are left to ask, what can we do? What Ends Wars?

Is there hope for a world liberated from the devastating impacts of all forms of warfare? What path lies ahead, and is there even a viable way forward?

These questions become especially relevant in the context of an author from our spiritual tradition who has delved deeply into this very topic. Their insights can illuminate a path that holds the potential to genuinely put an end to all wars.

Join us in this crucial discussion as we collectively explore ways to steer towards a world characterized by peace, both on a global scale all the way to the wars between us and the people in our lives.

We all navigate various relationships in our lives—be it with family, friends, colleagues, or neighbors. Yet, have you ever noticed how some of these relationships tend to be more challenging than others? Perhaps certain individuals prove to be more difficult to connect with or understand. Alternatively, we might even find ourselves being the challenging one in these dynamics, leaving others struggling to maintain a relationship with us.

What lies at the heart of these difficulties? Often, it's rooted in our past experiences, influencing our present interactions in subtle yet profound ways. Past traumas or unresolved issues can make us hypersensitive to certain situations, causing us to react poorly or unkindly.

We refer to this phenomenon as:

"Relation$hit"—the lingering effects of our pasts that complicate our current relationships.

Within the framework of the Jesus tradition, the command to "love your neighbor" could be viewed as an invitation to confront our Relation$hit and embark on a journey of healing. By addressing and resolving our past issues, we can become agents of love in the world, rather than being pulled into reactive patterns and lacking in relational skillfulness.

Therefore, we warmly invite you to join us in a series of discussions aimed at overcoming the Relation$hit within ourselves and in those around us.
