Mindful Activism and Peace
September 17 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
Leader, Philadelphia Ethical Society
Building peace is not only an act of compassion. To be sustainable, peace building must also be guided by equanimity and thoughtfulness. When advocating for peace, however, we are often confronted by hostile proponents of violent methods and brutal militarism. How can Ethical
Humanists and others strongly resist these proponents while practicing “ahimsa,” or non-violence toward all living things? This program kicksoff PES’s involvement in Peace Day Philly 2017. The plaform music will be performed by jazz bassist Dave Brodie, a longtime stalwart on the Philadelphia jazz scene, passionate educator and musical ambassador; and on tenor saxophone, Victor North, who has performed at venues like Chris’ Jazz Cafe for many years.
