In 2016, Preeta Bansal shared an informal talk on the "intersection between love and power" during a ServiceSpace retreat. Throughout the talk, Preeta explores how external systems and outer conditions can support or constrain inner work.

"In this ecosystem, we focus so much on leading with inner transformation and the ripples that follow from small acts, and so I want to explore that 'ripples-based' Gandhian model of change in the context of our broader systems operating socially, and the relationship between systems and inner transformation. [...] Should we keep focusing on the circles and ever-widening ripples, or do we at some point also have to worry about the design of the square [hierarchical systems and institutions] which may constrain and hold in those ripples?"
