About the event

How will "Radical Love" help us navigate a world in turmoil? (All audio for this event will be in Japanese except for Mr. Satish Kumar's.)

Radical Love

A form of "love" that embraces an era of turmoil

Satish Kumar, a thinker, activist, and educator who has devoted his life to creating a peaceful and sustainable world, will talk about how we should approach the "world" in which new coronas, wars, assassinations, etc. are swirling. He has dedicated his life to creating a peaceful and sustainable world. Radical Love" is also the title of his book to be published next year.

What does "radical love" mean in the context of Mr. Kumar's holistic vision of a simple and beautiful way of life that balances the three elements of soil, soul, and society, where people are in harmony with nature, value spirituality, and create a peaceful and just society? What does he mean by "radical love"?

We would like to have an interactive dialogue with Mr. Shinichi Tsuji, a cultural anthropologist.
