Karen Armstrong and The Compassionate Life

Karen Armstrong
Author and TED prize winner Karen Armstrong is calling us to action, and specifically to compassionate action. She has been a catalyst for religious leaders from traditions around the world to create the Charter for Compassion and the Compassionate Action Network.
She was recently in BC in conjunction with Simon Fraser University's 12 Days of Compassion and we were thrilled to have her as a guest in the Studio One Book Club.My co-host for the event was Paolo Pietropaolo.
