John Powell on Othering and Belonging

“My definition of spirituality: A deep sense of a lived practice of inter and intra-relatedness where we recognize, that we’re related to each other; where we recognize, that we’re a part of each other.”

In this talk on spirituality, John A. Powell, Director of the Haas Institute for a Fair and Inclusive Society shares what he feels is one of the challenges of the 21st century: the concept of othering and belonging.

I'm a Social Justice Educator and Aspiring Humanitarian who is interested in conflict resolution, improving intergroup relations, and building more equitable and inclusive communities. "Notes from an Aspiring Humanitarian" is my blog, where I write about issues of diversity, inclusion, equity, and social justice. By exploring social identities through written word, film & video, and other forms of media, I hope to continue to expand and enrich conversations about social issues that face our society, and to find ways to take social action while encouraging others to do so as well in their own ways.
