Hi everyone,

Have you seen the trailer for the Ai Weiwei film Human Flow? Growing hardened to the suffering of others endangers us all. We chose this film in collaboration with the Golden West College Peace Studies Program as an optimal pre-conference event for their 12th Annual GWC Peace Conference, “Peace and the Global Economy: Emerging Issues & Practical Solutions” Friday April 20, and Living Ubuntu’sConnecting the Dots: Finding Compassion Despite Our Differences”Sunday April 15. “Human Flow” will screen on Thursday April 12 (free admission | vegan refreshments).

Additionally, for anyone not yet familiar with who Gene Baur is, it’s time to get there. Watch this clip from when he was on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. We are very excited to feature Gene in Orange County TWICE this month. The context for his talk will be distinctly different at Fullerton College on Friday April 13 vs as part of the amazing intersectional April 15 Connecting the Dots: Finding Compassion Despite Our Differences, where many inspiring, thought-provoking speakers will be featured. (i.e. you might want to come to both.)

As if that is not enough, Carl Wilkens, the only American who chose to stay throughout the 1994 Rwanda genocide will be talking about Respect-Empathy-Inclusion (REI) at Fullerton College on Wednesday, April 25. He was highlighted in the PBS Frontline documentary, Ghosts of Rwanda, view a clip here.
To close out the month, Intro to Tension & Trauma Releasing Exercises: Connection, Compassion and Community is back. Join us Saturday April 28 for this free event with vegan refreshments.

There is limited space at these events. Please make sure to register. To find all six events all in one place: Living Ubuntu Events.
