    A New Global Read!

    The Third Harmony: Nonviolence and Human Destiny in the 21st Century
    By Michael N. Nagler - August 18 at 9 am Pacific Time

    “Nonviolence is not the recourse of the weak but actually calls for an uncommon kind of strength; it

    In The Third Harmony, Dr. Nagler argues for a new story, a looking away from problems like war and poverty: Instead, the universe is conscious and purposeful, humans are spiritual beings, and cooperation and collaboration are our natural way of interacting.

    With Gratitude to our sponsor, this Global Read is being offered for FREE.
