The intention for this evening

How do we face the realities of war without closing our hearts, but with a worldview that goes beyond “good versus evil”? How do we bear witness to the pain and stand with our suffering brothers and sisters in the human family? What can give us hope, a new vision and direction?

Sabine Lichtenfels says: “I want the people in the Middle East to feel that we are here – they are not alone.” And: “For me it makes a big difference to make the global networks of the heart visible.”

So it was an impulse from Sabine (supported by Summit host Martin Kirchner of Pioneers of Change) to invite friends: Sami, Gabriel, Charles & Kosha, “people who have a vision for the future, who know each other and trust each other”.

About the speakers

Sabine Lichtenfels

Co-founder of the Tamera ecovillage, peace researcher, theologian and director of the Global Love School. She is a “source for female peace knowledge” and has been committed to peace in the Middle East and Colombia and to deep cooperation with nature.

Sami Awad

is the founder of Holy Land Trust, an organisation that works for the dignity and justice of all people living between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea: Jews, Christians, Muslims. He works for peace through non-violent activism, personal transformation and spiritual trauma work. Sami´s grandfather was killed in 1948 and my father became a refugee at the age of nine. Sami was born in a refugee family.

Gabriel Meyer 

Musician, peace worker, writer, keynote speaker, and workshop facilitator. Gabriel follows in his late father Marshall Meyer´s footsteps as a spiritual activist and radical creative prayer leader. He was given the honorary title of “true representative of the Jewish people” by the late Rabbi Zalman Schachter Shalomi. He was initiated into the “order of disorder” by the late Zen Roshi Bernie Glassman. He learned from acclaimed Buddhist Teachers (e.g. Thich Nhat Hanh), had a private audience with the Dalai Lama, and studied with Sufi Sheiks from the Middle East & Africa as well as with Shamans from the Americas. Gabriel co-founded the Sulha Peace Project in 2001 and is currently a core member and coordinator of the “Defend the Sacred” global alliance of sacred activists, inspired by Standing Rock.

Charles Eisenstein
