You’re invited – Thursday, June 22! Please join us for the world premiere of a new film focusing on insights and defining lessons from David’s life experiences that, to this day, inform and inspire his work. Please share this invitation with friends, colleagues, and students – of all ages.
“For the Love of Life: Finding Our Way to An Ecological Civilization,” produced and directed by Audrey Kitagawa, David’s long-time friend and colleague, is a plenary session of World Unity Week. Narrated by David himself, the 30-minute film features a number of his long-time and new colleagues/collaborators and stunning video of the state of world and places where more loving, cooperative societies have existed for millenia or are now emerging.
The film will be followed by a conversation with David and Audrey.
On Thursday, June 22 – 5:00am (HST), 8:00am (PDT), 11am (EDT), there are two ways to participate (or view the recordings):

The recording of the session will also be available after the event for those who are unable to attend.
