The Spirit of Humanity Forum for 2019 asks important questions to support greater harmony and peace in our interconnected world. What relational practices can we foster? How might leaders actively nurture spiritual qualities? What stories can we share to transcend difference? Here are just a few resources to encourage reflection and support those on this journey toward more generative and peaceful relationships among individuals, communities, and society.

The Poetic Unfolding of the Human Spirit

What does it mean in this day and age to explore a global dream? John Paul Lederach, professor of International Peacebuilding at the University of Notre Dame, writes a rare travelogue reflecting on what it means to be fully engaged in the world. "My vocation falls somewhere between a Hopi rainmaker and VanGogh's Potato Planter,"  he writes. His travelogue carries within it many touchstones that will open your heart and mind.
