You are invited to come to Unity of Springfield located at 2214 E Seminole at 9:15 AM this coming Sunday morning, October 28, for a presentation of my recent trip to China and Tibet. My focus will be on ideas of “convergence”, how this idea changed China over the centuries, and how we get to where we are going with enlightenment and our endeavors that lead to our ultimate destiny. All that is important is that we find and follow the path meant for each of us. It’s why we are here. Its finding a sanctuary from within and having a sense of following where it might lead.
In the program at Unity of Springfield Sunday morning, I will attempt to reduce a month traveling to various cities in China and to Lhasa, Tibet to 45 minutes. For me, it was taking over 1,200 pictures and through them, my impressions of where I was, and my writing… telling me where I was to go next, and what my “takeaway” should be.
For those who don’t know me that well, I have been writing about Chinese history and philosophy for twenty-five years, made almost fifty trips (I’ve lost count) to China, and taught English at university and high school in Qufu, in Shandong Province for many years. I have been attending Unity first in Delray Beach, Florida, now in Springfield, Missouri since 1997. I am the President/CEO of my own foundation, The Kongdan Foundation, that was founded in 2006. It’s primary purpose is the be a conduit for better global understanding through conveying the history, philosophy, and culture of ancient China, and how it remains relevant to how we live our lives today.
A synopsis of Sunday’s program will appear here afterwards on this website.
