Daniel Sunjata - Film, theater and tv actor Daniel Sunjata will join us as moderator this weekend. Daniel's interest in humanity's potential for expanded understanding powerfully leads him to this event.

James Twyman - The Art of Spiritual Peacemaking - We have been told that peace is something that happens "by" us, or through seeing a problem and trying to solve it on our own. What if there's a new way of looking at peace, a way that allows it to move "through" us, solving the problems of violence and war from a very different perspective. The Art of Spiritual Peacemaking is the art of creating peace from the inside out. It is also the act of "becoming" the peace we want to see in the world.

Mikki Willis - Tragedy and Alchemy - My mission and company rose from the ashes of the World Trade Center. Since then, I've learned to turn every challenge to gold. 

Sylvia Clute - Justice As Love - During 28 years as a trial attorney I discovered that clients came to me with broken relationships and what I did made the wounds even deeper. There is another model of justice that restores relationships and leads to peace. I call this "unitive justice," to distinguish it from punitive justice. I will outline the moral, structural and historic differences between unitive and punitive justice and explain how unitive justice is readily at hand - no law degree required! It requires only that we choose to apply the simple principles of unitiive justice in our lives - the reward is peace.
