The peace-making potential of Sri Lanka’s Sarvodaya

At a time when the world is seeking ways to address deep-seated inequities, a new video featuring Dr. A. T. Ariyaratne shines a light towards a better humanity. Called the Gandhi of Sri Lanka, the video showcases Dr. Ari’s inspiring journey to create a sustainable peace in Sri Lanka. For over 60 years, his organization, Sarvodaya has empowered millions of people to build a long-lasting social, economic and environmental movement.

The Compassion Movement

The Augustinians Sisters have launched a Compassion Movement for healthcare workers and caregivers in Québec, Canada. They will take a symbolic one-hour walk every day from June 15 to July 4 at 11 a.m. around the exterior perimeter of Le Monastère des Augustines. The nine Sisters are asking that the general public join the movement to financially support Le Monastère so that it can continue its mission to provide respite and well-being for people who take care of the sick and most vulnerable.

Commitment to Change

While the tragedies of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, and Breonna Taylor happened recently, the systemic racism, discrimination, and oppression of Black people have been part of our social fabric for centuries. It’s time for change. HCN stands in solidarity with the international movement Black Lives Matter. We stand in solidarity with the entire BIPOC community against systems that degrade and harm the innate humanity we all share. Systemic racism, discrimination, and the oppression of any people have no place in the work of holistic education.

Retreat at Home

As many of us spend more time in the virtual world and centers pivot to create supportive online offerings, we discover it is possible to share love, learning and connection in this way. In person and hybrid events will hopefully be possible in time to come. For now we share a range of tools, services and practices to nourish us during this time. We invite you to be in touch so we can expand upon the offerings shared here. You might also find ideas to further serve your community as together we emerge stronger.
