Changing the world can seem like an impossible and intimidating feat beyond the capability of just one person. 

But if we consider the ancient Korean philosophy of Hongik, we are reminded of our innate desire to create harmony—the impulse that seeks to do good for as many as possible.
To think and act for the benefit of all others, in addition to yourself 

Dr. Pastreich, a leader in current East Asian issues in international relations and technology, believes this philosophy is “the most important part of any solution” and can greatly help us address and solve the problems in today's world.  

The spirit of Hongik has personally helped him lead a life of more intention and purpose.
In his free live webinar, he will discuss the meaning of the Hongik spirit as it applies to all humanity and share insights and tips to help support this awareness in your daily life.  
Dr. Pastreich will discuss...
• Lessons on mindful, sustainable living from the Hongik spirit
• How to restore your connections with other people, nature and yourself
• Simple ways to practice an earth-conscious lifestyle
• Conversation and inspiration with like-minded people
