Location

Isabel Bader Theatre Toronto
Canada

In a unique word and song presentation, Raffi will share his philosophy of "Child Honouring," a children-first paradigm for humane and sustainable communities - a compassionate revolution in values.

Drawing on the just-published anthology Child Honouring: How to Turn This World Around (co-edited by Sharna Olfman, foreword by the Dalai Lama), Raffi will stress that the primacy of the early years is key to building developmental health, emotional intelligence, and vibrant communities. Addressing the major issues of our time, Child Honouring is an organizing principle for peacemaking cultures.

Raffi's presentation will also include songs from his new CD Resisto Dancing: Songs of Compassionate Revolution — an uncompromising musical call to action.

Special Guests (anthology contributors):
Mary Gordon - Author, Founder of Roots of Empathy
Stuart Shanker - D.Phil, Distinguished Research Professor of Philosophy and Psychology
