Living Peace Now
with Dr. John Abd al-Qadir Davies
The world lives and evolves through dynamic contrasts. We are blessed to live in “interesting times”, and to seek the gifts that are hidden in the apparent chaos and uncertainty that periodically threaten to overwhelm us. The tensions from seemingly irreconcilable situations can move us to search more deeply to find peace, and to understand ourselves, our relationship to the world individually and collectively, and how we can live more of who we are capable of being.
