“Art of Universal Language” Pre-Parliament Event Empowers Creative Diversity

May 18, 2023

Whether you are attending this year’s Parliament of the World’s Religions or not, you are invited to gather with the hosts of “Art of Universal Language” to empower creative diversity.

Some of us have come to the realization that even if we are speaking the same vernacular language, each of us may have a unique linguistic interpretation of the same words which may result in the listener getting a much different idea than what was intended. Every single person on the planet has a unique perspective, created from their history, cultural influences, family-of-origin terminology, education, etc.

Join the free events housed on the Kazm Platform.

In this Spiritual Growth Conversation, you are encouraged to practice what we call universal language. Simply put, universal language is terminology that is the most common to all humanity. When utilizing universal language, you are specifically expressing your words and tone for the greatest number of people to understand, doing the greatest good for the greatest length of time.
