1/10/2011
More
Karen Armstrong, one of the most original thinkers on the role of religion in modern life, joins LIVE for a talk about making the world a more compassionate place. Armstrong believes that while all human beings are intrisically compassionate, we each need to work to cultivate and expand our capacity for this important instinct. She demonstrates that a compassionate life is not a matter of only heart or mind but a deliberate and often life-altering commingling of the two.
