Through the lens of a young Indian
boy, we experience being fundamentally lost, profound searching, and
survival. Through symbols, story, and sound, we will track his
finding of home as we tap into our own internal and external
experiences of loss/lost and found.
This coming-of-age story portrays
the excruciating struggle of an emotionally abused boy named Chiron
growing up with his crack-addicted mother, and without a father, in
the projects outside Miami in the 1980’s. What saves Chiron may be
his childhood connection to the local drug dealer, Juan, who is
internalized as a paternal figure and a loving attachment.
In discussing Kurosawa's
masterpiece, we will consider the dynamics of madness, the nature of
subjectivity in psychic reality, as well as possible lenses through
which to recognize the strands of our common humanity.
We depend on
the kindness of friends.

As the volume increases in our local
and national conversation, comprehension and true dialogue seem in
danger of vanishing entirely. Now more than ever we need to
practice the necessary – and difficult – art of listening. Layers
of thought, emotion, memory and image are always present in our
encounters with others. will explore how to attend to these
layers and how to make possible more direct and meaningful connections.
The intention is to enhance our capacity to listen deeply. We will have several topics and questions to choose from and will
use a Healing Circle (Peer Spirit) process which will be explained at
the beginning of each session.
Healing Circles are held from 6 - 7:30pm, on every 2nd and 4th Thursday
of the month, at The Jung Center.
Militants and Missionaries: LeT’s Dual Role in South Asia | Stephen Tankel, Assistant Professor, School of International Service, American University "LeT is defined by two dualities: the first is its identity as a militant group and as a missionary organization; the second concerns its military activities, namely that it is both a pan-Islamist group dedicated to waging jihad against all enemies of Islam and Pakistan’s most trusted and reliable militant ally."
Jihad in India, Kashmir and Afghanistan: A Boost to Pakistan? | Marvin Weinbaum, Director for Pakistan Studies, Middle East Institute "At this point in time, considering the growing tensions in Kashmir, the ISI has every reason to hold close a jihadi group such as LeT. Pakistan also cannot give up on its proxies in an Afghanistan that is seen as very possibly fracturing."

Donald Trump Can Learn from Teddy Roosevelt’s “America First” | Ambassador Richard Boucher, Former Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asia If our new Administration wants to keep America first in the world, they’d better come up with an integrated strategy soon, before others out-maneuver us, the way Teddy Roosevelt manipulated the powers of the 19th century. As we face a tumultuous world, perhaps we should ask: What would Teddy do?

15 Minutes The U.S. State Department recently revealed that individuals working in the U.S. embassy in Havana, Cuba were sent home due to symptoms resembling a concussion, with at least one employee suffering from hearing loss. State Department officials have said this was an “acoustic attack,” using sonic devices outside the range of audible sound that were placed either inside or outside the diplomats’ residences.
This week, The Cipher Brief’s Kaitlin Lavinder spends 15 minutes with H. Keith Melton, an intelligence historian, author, and board member of the International Spy Museum, who recently co-authored Spy Sites of Washington, DC with former CIA Director of the Office of Technical Service Robert Wallace. Here, they talk about the history of espionage activities between the U.S. and Cuba, and which country is the biggest espionage threat to the United States.
Iraqi Army Prepares for Assault Against ISIS in Tal Afar Iraqi warplanes have bombed ISIS positions in the city of Tal Afar, ISIS’ last stronghold in northern Iraq, as they prepare for a ground assault to take back the city from the terrorist group. It is not known when the offensive will begin, but Iraqi army, police and special operations forces units are heading to the area. Thousands of civilians have fled in preparation for the operation. Last month, Iraqi military commander Maj-Gen Najm al-Jabouri said that the jihadists were "worn out and demoralised" and that he did not expect a fierce battle similar to what occurred in Mosul.
The Cipher Take: Now that Mosul has been liberated, the Iraqi army has turned its attention to Tal Afar, which is located 35 miles east of Mosul. Iranian-backed Shia militas have already cut off the city from the West, encircling the approximately 2,000 ISIS fighters in the city. As ISIS is pushed out of its strongholds in Mosul and Raqqa and continues to lose territory in its self-declared caliphate across Syria and Iraq, the terrorist group will likely double down on its external operations, particularly in Europe and the United States, as well as its efforts to disseminate propaganda and inspire lone-wolf attacks.
