John Main Seminar 22, november 14-22, online
Democracy is too important to leave just to politicians. This seminar, led by Herman Van Rompuy, takes place in a responsive conversation with other meditators representing different ages and cultures in our community.
The talks and responses will explore:
* Democracy, values and meditation
* Global rivals: the Cold War between Democracy and Despotism
* Defending and supporting democracy in times of rising populism
* Government of the People by the People for the People: what changes are needed?
