In this webinar, George Kinder, founder of the Kinder Institute of Life Planning, discusses his latest book, A Golden Civilization and the Map of Mindfulness. Against the current backdrop of global political unrest, wars, inequality, pollution, and climate change, Mr. Kinder challenges us to believe that there is an alternative and sets out what we need to do to achieve it.
