There is demand for a multi-billion dollar fitness industry by a society increasingly obsessed with outward appearance.
But how do we clothe our soul? What spiritual attributes is humanity really hungry for?
Recent world events poignantly illustrate the social decay of our times.
Now more than ever the world needs citizens who live by the words spoken by ‘Abdu’l-Bahá in Paris in 1911:
“… let your heart burn with loving kindness for all who may cross your path”
Kishan and Katharina will be leading a dialogue on these issues in a gathering that will be held at Wollongong Bahá’í Centre of Learning, corner of Bellambi Lane and Princess Highway, on Friday 27 November 7:30 pm. This will be a discussion and reflection on how the same energy that goes into preserving our physical health can be ignited in building a kinder society. The gathering is open to the public and all are welcome.
With a PhD in anthropology and a combined background in medicine and international public health and development, Kishan and Katharina Kariippanon have diverse experience working with communities in a wide range of settings including Russia, Sri Lanka, Timor-Leste and Indigenous Australia, addressing individual and social health and wellbeing. They have recently moved to Wollongong with their two young children and are members of the Baha’i community.
