Unity as a Pathway to Peace with Dot Maver and Michael Lindfield
When we hear the word unity we often think of peace and harmony. Can unity be a practice of peace or is peace-building a practice of unity? Today we will explore the path of peace and unity from the inside out with two global leaders—one who directs people inward and the other who moves them into action. Join Dr. Julie and guests, Dr. Dot Maver and Michael Lindfield as we explore peace and unity.
Dr. Dot Maver is an educator and peacebuilder whose keynote is ‘inspiring cooperation on behalf of the common good.’ She is co-founder of Global Silent Minute, Global Alliance for Ministries and Infrastructures for Peace, National Peace Academy USA, and River Phoenix Center for Peacebuilding and works closely with Unity.Earth, UnGUN Institute, and SINE.Network
