Synthesis of Sensibilities:
Mi Feng Approach
by Deborah L. Woolsey
I seek the unity in all and attempt to express it.
I choose to be responsible to the cosmos around me because I know I am connected to it.
Like the honeybee, I enjoy the nectar of a variety of flowers and from each, comes a distinct type of honey, but it still remains honey.
Mi Feng does not propose that diversity should not be recognized, but that the differences should not create such divergence that we can find no common ground.
While it is obvious that everything and everybody is distinct, it is also imperactive to discover and hold onto the foundational principles of universality.
There are greater truths than what can be seen and these invisible realities hold greater promise if adhered to and greater threat if ignored.

"The Mi Feng approach creates a variety of ways to focus attention to the idea
that our thought and identity are unified in the "One."
