What if deep listening was a non-violent solution to conflict? What if humankind understood and appreciated the interconnection of all living things? As the main inspiration for Engaged Buddhism and the founder of the influential Plum Village Tradition, Thích Nhất Hạnh drew on traditional religious wisdom to both imagine and advocate for a better world.
The Buddhist monk, activist, author, poet, and teacher inspired tens of millions of people in the Buddhist tradition. What can we learn from his teaching and activism? How can we live in harmony with nature and humanity? How might insights from the “father of mindfulness” help humankind address current global crises and promote integral human development?
Join us for a panel discussion to hear insights from speakers, who will explore these questions and many more.
Presented by the Ansari Institute for Global Engagement with Religion and the Liu Institute for Asia and Asian Studies.
