Breaking bread, breaking boundaries

When you feel caught between two worlds

Archana Patel

Archana chose to live with a host family of limited means instead of with her relatives who lived an upper-middle class lifestyle. Watch how through love, Archana brought the two families together.

Something to think about

  1. What does Archana mean at the end when she advocates for "letting them be a part of us and taking ourselves and help bring other people together"? How might that look in your space?
  2. Talk about a time when the power of relationships helped you break personal or societal boundaries and expand your heart. How might you cultivate that more?
  3. Rumi says, "Let me sit here, on the threshold of two worlds, lost in the eloquence of silence."  Archana sat on the threshold of two worlds and fiercely (silently?) committed to the relationships in her host family and in her biological family.  What might you adopt in your personal theory of change?
