Brilliant Minds- Difficult Times


with Richard Reoch
February 15 / 9:00 AM - February 16 / 5:30 PM

We all know the world is changing, but do we know how to cope with it?  Why is it so hard for people to live and work together? And do we have time to change before we destroy ourselves and our planet?  If you find yourself asking these questions, and wishing there was another way of living and working with others, you might have a lot to share during this weekend workshop with Richard Reoch, the President of Shambhala. Richard Reoch is the former media chief of Amnesty International, the human rights organization, and a lifelong campaigner for peace and the environment. Seen below in a wartime crisis meeting with monks and police in Sri Lanka, he has worked in conflict zones around the world. He now serves as the President of Shambhala, a global movement based on the Buddha's teachings for creating enlightened society.
