“Peace in Conflict?”

Mr. Abdu Murray, J. D.

The impact of global conflicts have given rise to increased uncertainty and fear. Three aspects of human experience arise from conflict: cries of Sorrow arising from loss, demands for Justice, and questions about Love in the face of seeming indifference to our suffering. Abdu Murray explores how ancient wisdom can resolve all three aspects of conflict in a way that brings peace that defies our circumstances at this networking luncheon for diplomats, parliamentarians and business and professional leaders. A question and answer session will follow.
