Call in to speak with the host
Our guest, F. David Peat, has been one of our great heroes since we first read his Synchronicity. He is also the colleague and biographer of leading quantum physicist, David Bohm. He is co-founder of The Pari Center for New Learning, which favors a gentle approach to learning that emphasizes human interaction in simple, pleasant surroundings without the intrusion of unnecessary technology.
In his new book, Gentle Action: Bringing Creative Change to a Turbulent World, David argues that often individuals, organizations or governments take action or give aid from the best of motives, but that such action is often disruptive and damaging to a community, economy or environment because they are imposing change from outside. David proposes that new forms of "gentle action" are needed, actions which begin from within the system in question and emerge in creative ways.. These may range from projects on an international scale to a simple action by an individual.
We are honored to have F. David Peat share his insights into bringing about a more sustainable future through GENTLE ACTION.
It's good to talk.
