A dialogue that gives answers to today’s pressing issues based on Korea’s Hongik tradition of empathy.
A paperback by Ilchi Lee and Dr. Emanuel Pastreich.
Ilchi Lee, a Korean visionary who globalized Korea’s mind-body tradition, and Emanuel Pastreich, an American scholar of East Asian cultures, sat together for a conversation on a single question: What we can learn from ancient Korean wisdom that can help us create a more mindful and sustainable life on earth?
Their conclusions are illuminated in this book and offer inspiration to those looking for a new direction in this age of consumption and alienation. How did humanity wander so far off course, and how can we steer ourselves back to a life in harmony with the dynamic biome on which all life depends? The dialogue between these two figures suggests a new hope that small, daily actions taken by individuals can have a lasting impact on the entire planet.
