Peace Direct supported peacebuilder Ashima Kaul from Kashmir is a keynote speaker at the third annual Self Knowledge Global Responsibility Symposium taking place in September in the Scottish Borders. This three day event will explore the relationship between contemplative practice and action in the world, with other speakers from the fields of economics, science, sustainability and the arts.

It is for anyone who wants to be fully present in both the world and themselves and who recognises that the way we are and how we behave springs directly from the way we see ourselves and the world.

Scilla Elworthy, speaker at the first SKGR Symposium two years ago said of the event:

I have experienced a loving intelligence from the way the food is prepared right through to the way people are with each other, incredible evidence of walking the talk and talking the walk.

Friends of Peace Direct are invited to participate in this event, which includes talks, conversation, Qi gong, music and walks interspersed with periods of meditation, wonderful food and evening entertainment.
