2nd Annual Int'l Conference on "Engaging the Other": The Power of Compassion

Members of the D&D community are invited to an extraordinary international conference to address the roots of negative stereotypes, prejudice, and artificial barriers of misunderstanding and distrust that separate us. Join more than 60 leading presenters to cultivate our capacity for reconciliation, appreciation of diversity, and peace. This is an important, timely dialogue that concerns everyone.

Participants at this international, multi-cultural, multi-disciplinary conference will examine concepts of “The OTHER” from a universal, cross-cultural perspective to promote wider public dialogue about concepts of “Us and Them.” The conference, which is sponsored by the Common Bond Institute, will take place October 25-28, 2007 in Dearborn, Michigan

The outstanding, diverse pool of over 60 presenters includes:

Sam Keen, Danny Glover, Rep. Dennis Kucinich, Maureen O’Hara, James O’Dea, Louise Diamond, Sen. John Vasconcellos, Gay Barfield, Aftab Omer, Imam Hassan Qazwini, Rabbi Tirzah Firestone, Imam Mohamed Mardini, Lee Mun Wah, Sharif Abdullah, Ahmad Hijazi, Dizzy Warren, Libby and Len Traubman, Maggie Herzig, and many more.
