The Conway Hall Ethical Society presents
Understanding Human - Dr. Omar Sheikho Murad
Omar has been in touch with human pain and suffering since very early in life. After being in two wars and one violent uprising in Iraq, he finally escaped to London in 1996 as a refugee. He now works in London as a physician and a trainee psychiatrist. Murad has witnessed all kinds of traumas and has dealt with all kinds of wounds. Through his work as a doctor for the last two decades, his job has helped him to understand what people actually need.
His talk will teach understanding, how we can learn to be 'better quality humans' and how to have a better quality life for everyone everywhere, all of the time.
Dr. Omar Sheikho Murad is originally from Zakho City, Kurdistan, Iraq. He is the author of ten books using the "Water-Logic" instead of "Rock-Logic" (i.e., using peaceful means instead of violence and aggression) which are about understanding life and understanding humans.

When & Where
Conway Hall is the landmark of London's independent intellectual, political and cultural life.
Conway Hall is owned by Conway Hall Ethical Society, which was first opened in 1929. The name was chosen in honour of Moncure Daniel Conway (1832 - 1907), anti-slavery advocate, out-spoken supporter of free thought and biographer of Thomas Paine.
Conway Hall now hosts a wide variety of lectures, classical music, classes, performances, community and social events. It is renowned as a hub for free speech and independent thought.
Founded in the 1880s, our chamber music concert series (now Conway Hall Sunday Concerts) - are the longest-running of their kind in Europe. The ethos of "affordable classical music for all" still remains.
Conway Hall reserves the right to change the programme and personnel of its events without notice in the event of unforeseen circumstances.
