DemoSapiens: A Webinar on Culture, Conflict and Democracy

DemoSapiens is a 12 week webinar series on Conflict, Culture and Democracy, taught by Ashok Panikkar of MetaCulture. This is what one of our participants, Courtney Cole had to say about it: “I love ‘process’ work and open minds and smart people willing to appear otherwise in order to grow. Ashok offers a forum – no, a container – in which each participant and the group as a whole witnesses an advancement of  their relationship with Democracy.  What begins as solid – softens, broadens, and deepens through brave, divergent, respectful dialogue that draws as much from the current moment as from history. Coming from an open heart and a critical mind, Ashok does not hesitate to challenge participants’ perceptions. One emerges from this series beginning to grasp the fragility of the rare and precious gift of Democracy. If you think you know what to do to protect that rare and precious thing, think again. Or join Demosapiens.”

The next batch starts on Thursday 24th of September at 10:00 am. Limited scholarships are available. For more details, write to
