Photos from Seattle Seeds of Compassion

From Keith McCandless:

It was wild ride and a great privilege to be a part of this fabulous event. A “spiritual Olympics” comes to Seattle.

His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu were amazing. Like many others, I was strongly attracted to their goodness and depth of compassion in the face of despair. I hope the story of graphically recording the event shares some of the love, forgiveness, and insight generated over these five glorious days.

[World Café GiGi (Girl Geek) Nancy White was among the graphic recorders in Seattle.]
