How can we live authentic lives in a world where fear, violence and the abuse of power are so prevalent? In today’s globalized world we cannot be innocent bystanders, and must engage with power, or accept things broadly as they are. In ‘Spirited Living’ Simon Fisher responds to today’s urgent need to forge more assertive ways of building peace with justice. Drawing on his extensive cross-cultural experience in conflict transformation work, he invites us to bring some different tools and insights to 9our everyday experience, and find new ways to address all levels of conflict. Simon speaks to anyone who feels disempowered and is looking for fresh ideas to build constructive change. In this annual lecture to Quakers in Britain he presents challenging ways to live out the Quaker Peace Testimony in the here and now.
