We are all prisoners of a logic which has proven destructive for mankind and planet Earth. To break the deadlock, Marc and Nathanaël tried to question the fundamental beliefs of modern society: separation, competition, and individualism. Their travels take them from India to Guatemala, through the United States and across Europe to discover the message of activists, biologists, philosophers and guardians of ancestral traditions from across the world. Interviews with Vandana Shiva, Bruce Lipton, Satish Kumar, Pierre Rabhi, Frédéric Lenoir and more are included on their quest.

The Internationalists: How a Radical Plan to Outlaw War Remade the World.  February 9, 2018 8:00am Pacific Time. Register here.

The Internationalists is a bold and provocative history of the men who fought to outlaw war and how an often overlooked treaty signed in 1928 was among the most transformative events in modern history. Authors Oona A. Hathaway and Scott J. Shapir tell the story of the Peace Pact by placing it in the long history of international law from the seventeenth century through the present, tracing this rich history through a fascinating and diverse array of lawyers, politicians and intellectuals.

How to Bring Balance and Compassion to Life (February 5 - March 4) Registration open now
Life is richer and more productive when it is in balance and includes self-compassion. We can give more to others when we have more to give! Self-compassion and balance can generate the energy and space you need to contribute your distinctive talents and compassionate action into the world. Everyone has something precious to contribute to humanity; and every precious piece is needed. This course proposes that minor shifts can create major change. These minor shifts can be implemented immediately!
