2017 World Goodwill Seminar, New York: Video

From the Unreal to the Real:
Discerning Truth – Cutting Through the Glamour of the Times


1pm – 5.30pm,
Saturday, 18 November 2017
3 West Club, 3 W 51st Street,
Bet. 5th and 6th Ave.
New York, NY



An afternoon of insightful talks, small group sessions and meditation to explore truth and kindle discernment in these challenging times.

Today the ancient cry to be led from the unreal to the real has taken on a fresh immediacy and relevance. Now, more than ever, people of goodwill are called to sharpen and refine their skills of discrimination and discernment. Without the cultivation of a sense of the Real with all its beauty and promise, there is the danger that despair will characterize the vision of the future. This must not be allowed to happen. During the Seminar we will be exploring these themes as they apply to the national and individual life.
