Live Video: John Francis, Ragged Edge of Silence

(via the Nelson Institute): John Francis, Visiting Professor at the Nelson Institute of Environmental Studies, kicked off the Institute for Justice Education (IJET)’s Spring 2012 Speakers and Trainers Series on January 26 with his public talk, Ragged Edge of Silence. Through storytelling, music, artwork, discussion and interactive practice with silence, Francis engaged participants in thinking about the connections between silence and listening, humanity and sustainability, and faith and justice. Francis is the author of two books, Planetwalker: 22 Years of Walking, 17 Years of Silence and The Ragged Edge of Silence: Finding Peace in a Noisy World.

For those of you who missed the lecture or want to experience it all over again, the Nelson Institute recorded Francis’s talk. You can view it below or on YouTube.
