Exploring World Unity with Ben Bowler
The global pause caused by the COVID-19 pandemic is uniting the world in new ways. Our opportunity to foster a genuine movement towards global unity has never been greater. Together, we are co-creating a new story and a more beautiful future for Earth and all its inhabitants. As we seek greater unity, some ask, “Is unity even possible?” Perhaps our inherent unity—our innate wholeness—is the only remedy for our times. Join Ben Bowler from Unity Earth as he invites that unity to shape our future, inspire radical hope, and catalyze deep transformation.
