Saturday Short

. . . Spirituality takes note of place, the spaces
that connect the mystery of beauty around you
with the magic of being alive. . . .
~ John Paul Lederach

Today's short is a reflection and meditation from The Art and Soul of Compassion, a digital storytelling project that brings together voices from the disciplines of art, contemplative practice, peace building, social science, and neuroscience. The 10-minute film is narrated by John Paul Lederach

Lederach, an expert in conflict transformation, is the professor of International Peacebuilding at the University of Notre Dame in Indiana; he also is an Eastern Mennonite University Distinguished Scholar and a senior fellow at Humanity United (Omidyar Foundation). Lederach has published more than 20 books, including Reconcile: Conflict Transformation for Ordinary Christians (Herald Press, 2014) and The Moral Imagination: The Art and Soul of Building Peace (Oxford University Press, 2010).

My thanks to On Being on Tumblr, where I first saw the film.
