Active Peace, Reconnecting with Nature and Humanity

Scott Brown, author of Active Peace: A Mindful Path to a Nonviolent World, spoke with Rob about his personal transformation from environmental warrior to peacemaker.  Scott’s initial work for Greenpeace and his anti-war activism was very confrontational.  A turning point came when he was forming a coalition to protect moose habitat in Nova Scotia. Scott began to realize that we really are all in this together! Scott describes how the belief in separateness is the root cause of what ails us individually and collectively. The remedy he presents is to follow a path of active peace that includes mindfulness, nature-based practices, interpersonal skills and tools, and a restorative approach to activism. It’s a path that offers direct experiences of the interrelatedness of everything. For more information, dwell awhile in Scott’s website www.4activepeace.com
