Embracing otherness, embracing ourselves

Thandie Newton

"The thing that was a source a shame, was actually a source of enlightenment." - Thandie Newton

An emotionally gripping talk on self awareness that will compel you to look inside and question who you are and how you view others. Thandie delicately weaves through the universal task of defining a ‘true self’ and makes a strong case against it stating that “if we’re all living in ourselves and mistaking it for life, then we’re devaluing and desensitizing life.”

That self that you cling so tightly to could be the very thing that isolates you from the world. Rather, when we are able to embrace others and embrace our oneness in which we are all connected, we allow ourselves to see the vast beauty within.
