"Walking the talk"
15h September at 5pm BST
“But I have come to realize that the true meaning of pilgrimage is to live free from any attachments, habits, prejudices. Free from physical and mental clutter. Making an outer journey is a reminder of an inner journey, and I discovered that I am always on a pilgrimage. Life is a journey. I want to travel through life as a pilgrim.”
~ Satish Kumar
What does it mean to "walk the talk"? How do we create peace? How do we find the strength to continue our work as change-makers in a world where there is so much deception, so much violence and divisiveness?
A true elder, Satish is at the heart of our Worldview course at Gaia Education and present in many other dimensions. In this conversation, we will talk about war and peace, sacred activism and hope with one of the most authentic and highly respected humans we have the luck to walk with in this life.
Satish is an Indian British activist and speaker. He has been a Jain monk, nuclear disarmament advocate and pacifist.Now living in England, Kumar is founder and Director of Programmes of the Schumacher College international center for ecological studies, and is Editor Emeritus of Resurgence & Ecologist magazine. His most notable accomplishment is the completion, together with a companion, E. P. Menon, of a peace walk of over 8,000 miles in June 1962 for two and a half years, from New Delhi to Moscow, Paris, London, and Washington, D.C., the capitals of the world's earliest nuclear-armed countries. He insists that reverence for nature should be at the heart of every political and social debate.
