Ahimsa Center presents a virtual public lecture by

Michael Charles Tobias

Saturday, October 2, 10:00-11:00 a.m. PST via zoom

Nonviolence in an Age of Mass Extinctions

Given the extent of humanity’s dominion over the biosphere, how can individuals contribute meaningfully to the amelioration of suffering? To the end of our mindless domination of so many other species? Where are the moments in our past and present which offer a window for the future in terms of true conscience at work, compassion in action, a vision of the future that can help all of us to re-embrace the natural world sustainably. Dr. Tobias will discuss nonviolent options that might yet empower our species’ ability to collectively instill an ethical, ecological consensus.

The talk will be followed by Q & A and dialogue with the speaker.
