Watch Party: Third Harmony

July 27 @ 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm

Do you wish for a peaceful way to interact with people who so intensely disagree with you? If so, COME and consider some new ideas about our species. The Peace and Justice Network of Montgomery County, Inc. is sponsoring a showing of THE THIRD HARMONY. This film tells the story of nonviolence, the greatest overlooked resource in human experience.

THE THIRD HARMONY draws on interviews with veteran activists like Civil Rights leader Bernard Lafayette, scientists like behaviorist Frans de Waal and neuroscientist Marco Iacoboni, Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal, political scientist Erica Chenoweth, futurist Elisabet Sahtouris, and others.

As we live year by year, we may “learn” what to expect from “human nature.” But MAYBE there are other possibilities. Maybe the universe is conscious and purposeful, we are spiritual beings, and cooperation and collaboration are our natural way of interacting. Maybe scarcity, competition, and violence are not inevitable.

The film delves into the important role that nonviolence plays in the wider struggle to develop a new theory of human nature– how every one of us can add to our personal growth and fulfillment while benefitting society through the use of this time-tested power.

There will be a discussion after the movie.
