Event description
Science & Wisdom LIVE presents: Lighthouse Dialogues II - An Interview with Sister Jayanti Kirpalani

About this event

In this second interview of the Lighthouse Dialogues, author Vicki Mackenzie will talk with Sister Jayanti Kirpalani: a spiritual teacher for over 50 years, who has dedicated her life to self-transformation and service to humanity. Sister Jayanti continues to champion the co-operative role of spiritual organisations in creating a just and peaceful world, bringing spiritual principles to the discussion tables of politicians, economists, business leaders, scientists and nearly every stakeholder of our times. Sister Jayanti sees the erosion of spiritual values as the underlying cause of the crises the world is facing today.

The Lighthouse Dialogues is a series of new events, organised in collaboration with Jamyang Buddhist Centre London and Science & Wisdom LIVE. Twice or thrice a year, author Vicki MacKenzie will interview spiritual 'lighthouses', i.e. inspiring and profoundly wise contemplative practitioners, who could function as a lighthouse – a beacon of light and understanding – for others. The interviews are accessible to the general public via LiveStream, and will also be recorded and made freely available on our Podcast and YouTube channels.
