TED Talk Thursday – Megan Phelps-Roper: I grew up in the Westboro Baptist Church. Here’s why I left.

TED Talk ThursdaysAccording to TED.com: “What’s it like to grow up within a group of people who exult in demonizing … everyone else? Megan Phelps-Roper shares details of life inside America’s most controversial church and describes how conversations on Twitter were key to her decision to leave it. In this extraordinary talk, she shares her personal experience of extreme polarization, along with some sharp ways we can learn to successfully engage across ideological lines.”

“Megan Phelps-Roper was raised in the Westboro Baptist Church, the Topeka, Kansas church known internationally for its daily public protests against members of the LGBT community, Jews, the military and countless others. As a child, teenager and early 20-something, she participated in the picketing almost daily and pioneered the use of social media in the church. Dialogue with “enemies” online proved instrumental in her deradicalization, and she left the church and her entire way of life in November 2012. Since then she has become an advocate for people and ideas she was taught to despise — especially the value of empathy in dialogue with people across ideological lines. She speaks widely, engaging audiences in schools, universities, faith groups, and law enforcement anti-extremism workshops. Her forthcoming memoir will be published by Farrar, Straus and Giroux.”

For those of you not familiar with TED Talks here is a brief summery from www.ted.com: “TED is a small nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design. Since then its scope has become ever broader. Along with two annual conferences — the TED Conference in Long Beach and Palm Springs each spring, and the TEDGlobal conference in Oxford UK each summer — TED includes the award-winning TEDTalks video site, the Open Translation Project and Open TV Project, the inspiring TED Fellows and TEDx programs, and the annual TED Prize”

Mandala Monday – Mandalas from the Heart of Freedom, Part 1

Freedom is the theme and name that this new set of mandalas have given me as their name. Throughout 2016 I created mandala after mandala. Periodically I would go through them and see which ones wanted to stay in a collection permanently and discard the others. I never know what I am going to create when I sit down to do one, and while they always seem to want to be published as a set, I never know what the name or theme is until they are all done. In early 2017 I began the final work of printing each image to see which would work well in print (what looks good on a computer screen doesn’t always translate to print) and see which images really wanted to be out in the world as a set.

There are now 30 images, whose name, Mandalas from the Heart of Freedom, popped into my head as I was finalizing them. You can see them all on my gallery page, http://nwcreations.com/galleries/mandalas/, or just view and savor a few as I release them on this blog over the coming weeks.

I hope you find inspiration and joy in interacting with them.
