It is in our human nature to passionately hold firm to our beliefs.
It is in our human nature to defend those beliefs, often at huge cost.
It is in our human nature to criticise others and their beliefs as part of that defence.
But our human nature should work in our interests, and not against us. And it is in our interests to know when to hold tight and when to let go, to critically appraise our own positions and understand the true value of those positions, and what really matters in life and in our community.
This skill is an art. We call it “The Art of Dispute”.
In the run-up to what will be our biggest Ilmsummit yet, held this year in London UK, 19th-28th Dec 2014, we are delighted to present a special promo Ilminar on finding direction and understanding during disagreement, with our Ilmsummit Instructor Sh Yahya Ibrahim.
