The subject of the talk was "A Thicket of Views", spoken of by the Buddha, dealing with the social dynamics of “Belonging" and "Othering”. How do we train the mind to use ideas of identity as skillful means to connect with others and to illuminate biases? How can one use views and opinions about self and others without planting seeds of suffering?
