Join Deepak Chopra, founder of The Chopra Foundation and senior scientist at The Gallup Organization, Karenna Gore, director of the Center for Earth Ethics, and bestselling author Kabir Sehgal as they examine the nature of peace… whether peace is possible amid the widespread polarization in our society, and the connection between individual compassion and health and collective wellbeing and peace. They contemplate the nature of human security, and the possibility that war will ever end. 

During this engaging session, you'll discover:

  • The illusion of separation that perpetuates humanity's greatest challenges — climate disruption, poverty & war
  • How the transformation of human consciousness can lead to a culture of peace & nonviolence
  • What you can do to create peace in your own life, and in the world
