We need to consciously reflect on our responsibility of owning the US-Vs-THEM concept instead of allowing it to dictated our way of seeing the world. We have evolved from tribes of people with restricted knowledge into a true global village.
Information technology reduces the whole planet to a space similar to that of a village, allowing direct and instant communication. This global village crosses over previous cultural barriers and fosters the fusion of knowledge and experience to improve mutual understanding . Our viewpoint of the world is greatly impacted by the information we obtain via the technology at our disposal.

This workshop explores the evolution of the human brain and how humans have advanced complex system of communication, including the development of linguistic systems that can express an infinite variety of separate and distinct thoughts. It explores how different facets of our brain have evolved in time, and how many still coexist today inside our heads, being essential components of the mainframe of our being. They are the hardware by which we are wired to our perception of the world, and culture is all about how we humans perceive the world.

The workshop explores the relationship between thoughts, emotions and actions and how the human mind uses categories like race, gender and ethnicity. It looks at the reasons why humans are hardwired to sort everything into groups and associate in categories. It explains the differences between the tribal mentality, vital to survival of the human species in the past, to the current danger of incurring in racial, ethnic and cultural profiling. This is at the core of religious strife, political conflicts, and most rivalries. In many ways, it is at the core of the concepts of country and culture. Concepts that denote "my group", "my" religion, "my" race, "my" country are at the center of most conflicts in societies past and present. Now then, they exist because a long time ago, such things were useful, because we were surrounded by wild animals and needed to hunt, so group identification and cohesion was important for survival. The service of this tribal mentality is no longer valid and we must learn to proactively overcome the barriers it creates in our ability to engage in cross-cultural communication and healthy intercultural relationships.

To create awareness of the need to overcome our hardwire structure of thought in terms of OUR TRIBES and choose our own way of processing our perceptions. This awareness of our tribal mentality and the fact that our nervous system is predisposed to organize perceptions into groups will allow us to understand how we mostly think in terms of US vs THEM. This awareness should lead to an understanding of some of the group underpinnings of behavior and relationships, and in gaining such understanding, start to change or help change negative behaviors and replace them with healthy responses that correspond to our needs as humans living in a technological society in the 21 century Global Village.
