Global Co-operation House 65-69 Pound Lane, Willesden Green United Kingdom
In today’s world of fake news and fear, how do we build relationships of trust? Is there an inner compass that guides us and how do we work with it?  From where do we get the courage to keep listening?
This evening will be a conversation between two remarkable individuals, Professor Mike Hardy and Sister Jayanti, who have learned to listen to their own inner voice and embrace a wider perspective. This has led them to build bridges of trust between communities all over the world.
The event will be introduced by Dr Sarah Eagger, who creates spaces for self-trust and self-compassion in her work.
