Join us for the 2nd installment in a yearlong exploration of world religions on Weds, November 30 @ 6pm EST.  This is a conversation with writer, educator, and activist Dr. Simran Jeet Singh to discuss Sikhism and his new book, The Light We Give: How Sikh Wisdom Can Transform Your Life. Dr. Singh is the executive director for the Aspen Institute’s Religion and Society Program, a Soros Equality Fellow with the Open Society Foundations, a Senior Adviser on Equity and Inclusion for YSC Consulting, and a Visiting Professor at Union Seminary. In his work and contemplative talks, he offers a fresh approach to ethical living—one in which love, caring, and service go hand-in-hand with personal happiness. He shares the skills and insights that kept him engaged in his commitment to activism, and how to use compassion as the antidote to anger, self-pity, or social justice burnout.
