50 Things to Open Your Spirit

 50 Things

to Open Your Spirit

Home

Opening ourselves to diversity is "our gift" to the Universe.


It is just amazing how many different ways there are to be and live.

No matter how open and accepting we are, it is human nature to "get stuck"

in our own way of being. We forget just how differently those around us may

see the world. The trick is to stay flexible and open to appreciate all of human culture.

It's great fun to be a cultural explorer!  So, here are 50 Things to do to free you up.

Human Culture is a wealth of unique rhythms & hues.
