With Audri Scott Williams

As a global peace walker active in social and environmental justice, Audri Scott Williams has engaged with communities around the world and across this country at the grassroots level. Listen in as she opens up about what she's learned by walking gently on Mother Earth. She relays her experience of the awe that's created out of the various tensions that inform our present moment awareness and future projections. It's this tension that's motivated Audri to bring the wisdom of her life's journey into the political process in America.

During this personal session, you'll discover:

  • What peace walking really means
  • How the tensions shaping our future are rooted in our capacity to imagine a better world that works for ALL
  • That politics is not separate from deeper truths that call us to be more human, more caring and in tune with the needs of the people & the country
