Awakin Talks, India
We are at an unprecedented crossroads in human history. How we will respond? We believe that acts of courageous kindness we're seeing today will far outlive the Coronavirus, and if enough of us keep that flame alive in our consciousness, it could usher a new era for our future. Awakin Talks is a series of webinars to explore a wide array of compassionate responses to our world today.

We will explore these questions with 3 heartful leaders, who have facilitated many in their journey towards conscious leadership, for inner and outer development.

Quote of the Moment
"In India, when we meet and greet and we say 'Namaste', which means: I honor the place in you where the entire universe resides, I honor the place in you of love, of light, of truth, of peace. I honor the place within you where if you are in that place in you and I am in that place in me, there is only one of us." ‑‑Ram Dass
