An Evolutionary Roundtable Around Peaceful Solutions To Terrorism

After the recent events in Beirut, Kenya, and Paris, I decided to invite several key members of the Evolutionary Leader’s Circle to discuss these events and to start a dialogue on how we can look at them from different perspectives. Don Beck couldn’t get on the hangout so I called Joe Martino of Collective-Evolution to bring a millennial voice to this party. I was joined by Barbara Marx Hubbard, Elza Maalouf, Gregg Braden, and Stephen Dinan.
