Reflections on Gifts

What are gifts and how do we give and receive them with willingness? What is the nature of gifts? It’s easy to think about gifts as things we receive for free, and that’s a small part of it. But what If the whole world were made up of gifts? What if our relationships consisted of “mutual giving from the heart” as Marshall Rosenberg put it. What if we saw natural resources as “earthly gifts” in the words of Robin Wall Kimmerer. And what’s more, how do we learn to give and receive genuine gifts without resentment? Our work is to ask and explore these questions together.
