TheMerode had the pleasure of welcoming Satish Kumar, environmental and spiritual activist last August. This time our great friend comes back to help us find ways to love ourselves, others, and all beings on planet Earth—even those we may find unlovable.

In his new book, Radical Love, Satish shares his experiences as a lover, parent, activist, and educator into simple lessons on transforming our time of ecological crisis, conflict, and scarcity into one in which we experience harmony with nature, safety, and abundance.

Want to (re)discover how radical love brings joy in life? Come and join us for a fireside talk in our Salon Merode.  It will be an opportunity for profound discussions and deep reflection, incorporating the wisdom of poets and mystics, to consider the most powerful force on earth.

Satish will be thrilled to present his latest book, Radical Love, expected to be published in February 2023. Copies will be available on the day of the event. Have your copy signed by Satish after the conference.

SPEAKER: Satish Kumar

Peace-pilgrim, life-long activist, and former monk, Satish Kumar has been inspiring global change for over 50 years. Aged 9, Satish renounced the world and became a wandering Jain monk. Then in his 20s, he undertook a pilgrimage for peace, walking for two years without money from India to America for the cause of nuclear disarmament. Now in his 80s, Satish has devoted his life to campaigning for ecological regeneration, social justice, and spiritual fulfilment. A world-renown author and international speaker, Satish founded The Resurgence Trust, an educational charity that seeks to inform and inspire a just future for all. He was the Editor of the charity’s change-making magazine, Resurgence & Ecologist, for over 40 years, making him the UK’s longest-serving editor of the same magazine. He continues to serve this publication as Editor Emeritus and by writing for each and every trailblazing issue.
