The predicament of being a human being – Marlene ffrench Mullen
This session will attempt to circumscribe the predicaments we experience within our spiritual practice in order to live an ethical life. To live an ethical life cannot be thought outside of our social bond – and this social bond is rapidly changing. In this presentation, we attempt to identify and locate the subjective stumbling blocks that inevitably challenge our ethical position in the world.
