Indigenous Peoples March & Women's March 2019 (Ninth in a Thrive Global Nonviolence Series)

Two days, two important marches (actually many around the globe) — the Indigenous People’s March and the Women’s March; countless numbers are standing together in a call for action.

I feel such profound gratitude for the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and the nonviolence he taught the people of this country. I thought of his vision of the Beloved Community many times while traveling with the grandmothers.

(When asylum-seeking parents and children were separated and put in detention centers; compassionate, creative action was needed & Grandmother Healing Dolls was born. Follow the journey of their creation and the 3000 mile trip to three detention centers, courthouses, and more on this Thrive Global series.)

People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
