Sometimes acting with the very best intentions can lead to disaster. How can you be sure that the good works you do actually have the positive outcome you hope for? F. David Peat has applied the principles of quantum physics to explain why some efforts to implement social change have failed miserably, while others have succeeded beyond anyone’s expectations. He explains why taking steps to engage in “gentle action” has had far-reaching benefits in programs as diverse as micro lending and a conscious approach to death. You’ll discover how this thoughtful approach can become a way of life, as it is in the tiny Italian village where he lives, where there is very little cash and businesses operate on barter and trust. Most of all, David Peat encourages all of us to participate in what he sees as a pivotal time in which society is ready to receive and respond to our most noble efforts. He explains, “We’ve got good grounds to be optimistic that we can make a change, and we can all contribute to the betterment of society both in our local community and globally. Our hearts are now in the right place.” (hosted by Michael Toms)
