New Webinar: How to Change the World
October 6, 2016 Michela Mangiaracina

Do you ever wonder how we can make real changes in the world?

Emanuel Pastreich, PhD, co-author of Earth Management: A Dialogue on Ancient Korean Wisdom and Its Lessons for a New Earth with Ilchi Lee, will be giving his suggestions at a free live webinar on on Thursday, November 10, 2016 at 5 pm (PDT), 8 pm (EDT).

Dr. Pastreich is a scholar of classical East Asian literature who serves as a professor at the College of International Studies at Kyung Hee University in South Korea and as director of the Asia Institute, a think tank dedicated to exploring the intersection of technology, climate change, and international relations. In his study of ancient Korean literature and traditions, Dr. Pastreich came to appreciate the Korean concept of Hongik, which means to think and act to benefit all others in addition to yourself. He sees the Hongik spirit as a real hope for the world’s ability to manage its problems. This hope was solidified after Dr. Pastreich began to practice Ilchi Lee’s Brain Education method of natural health and personal mastery, which naturally makes the Hongik spirit come alive in each person.

Now Dr. Pastreich is bringing his ideas and experience to the English-speaking world for the first time. In this live webinar, “How to Change the World: 5 Wholesome Lessons We Can Learn from Ancient Korean Tradition,” he will share his ideas on what each individual can do in their own lives to create a more peaceful and sustainable world.
