Today’s word for writing is “surprise.”
On pathways to collective flourishing, why is it important to stay open to surprise?
When is surprise about an evil action a product of naivete or privilege?
How does trauma and oppression shut down our capacity to stay open to positive surprises – unexpected transformations or openings?
How does surprise open up new possibilities – for good or for evil?
What surprises have had a lasting impact on you?
Reflect. Meditate. Pay attention. Feel.

Collective contributions will remain open until tomorrow morning. Come back to view previous days contributions anytime here.
