A Dialogue with Sulak Sivaraksa and Manulani Aluli Meyer

“Aloha is the intelligence with which we meet life.”
-Olana Kaipo Ai

Ajahn Sulak Sivaraksa and Dr. Manulani Aluli Meyer will explore our globalized economy and how it affects us personally, spiritually, and as a community here in Hawai’i.

Sulak Sivaraksa is one of Asia’s leading social thinkers and activists. His wide-ranging work includes founding the International Network of Engaged Buddhists and dozens of other grassroots organizations, and authoring more than 100 books in Thai and English, including The Wisdom of Sustainability: Buddhist Economics for the 21st Century. He was nominated twice for the Nobel Peace Prize and, in 1995, received the Right Livelihood Award, known as the alternative Nobel Peace Prize.

“Sulak Sivaraksa and I share a conviction that if we are to solve human problems, economic and technological development must be accompanied by an inner spiritual growth.”
-His Holiness the Dalai Lama

“Like Gandhi, Sulak offers great inspiration to a civilization that has lost its way.”
-Jack Kornfield, author of The Wise Heart

Manulani Aluli Meyer is Associate Professor of Education at the University of Hawai’i, Hilo, specializing in Hawaiian cultural views of intelligence. She is author of Ho’oulu: Our Time of Becoming, and the forthcoming Hawaiian Knowing.

“A far-reaching visionary, Manu Aluli Meyer captures an essence of what it means to be Hawaiian.” -Luana Palapala Busby-Neff, Hawaiian cultural practitioner

“Manu reveals “… a vision of a free Hawai’i few of us ever imagine. This is one Hawai`i Maoli wahine you’ll remember for a long time to come.” -Ehu Kekahu Cardwell, Koani Foundation
