What the thread that weaves people of different backgrounds together? It's the Golden Rule! Join Victor Kazanjian, the Executive Director of the United Religions Initiative and a lifelong peacebuilder, as he calls us into a special practice of the Golden Rule.


On a recent Euphrates Institute community call,  Chapter Leaders were asked to explain what the Golden Rule means to them and how they are applying it in their everyday lives. It led to a rich conversation with individuals sharing their personal stories and insights on this topic from India, Liberia, Pakistan, and the United States. The Golden Rule is a core value of Euphrates and one that we are committed to practicing as we strive to turn “others” into brothers, both locally and globally.

Contemplative  is very pleased to host The Interfaith Amigos in this lively conversation about how to transform the Golden Rule into the Golden Reality. The Golden Rule has been around for millennia, emerging from every corner of the earth with every hope of transforming humanity from a competitive warrior species to one of unity, peace, and harmony. What will it take to bring the Golden Rule’s potential to fruition?

Closing Golden Rule Day...

To close this day focused on kindness, compassion and the Golden Rule, Lisa Berkeley, an Ambassador with the Charter for Compassion, will moderate a live interview with some of the Planning Partners of Golden Rule Day. They will share how all of this came about, the many joys and challenges they have had while working on Golden Rule Day, and some of the take-aways from this nearly 24-hour-long event. The last image before we all sign off will be of our beautiful Earth while we all share a minute of silence. Thank you for participating in Golden Rule Day 2018!
