Upcoming Speaker

Bo and Sita Lozoff

PUBLIC TALK: October 7th. 7 - 9:00 p.m. Wauwatosa United Methodist Church, 1529 N. Wauwatosa Ave (76th St.), Milwaukee, WI. Info/directions 414-453-4407.

The Lozoffs have been cited for numerous humanitarian awards, including the prestigious Temple Award for Creative Altruism from the Institute for Noetic Sciences. Their sincerity and commitment have earned the respect of hundreds of thousands of prisoners and others around the world who feel inspired to follow a similar path of living simply and joyfully caring about others.

In 1999, Bo received an honorary doctorate degree -- a Doctor of Laws -- from one of the oldest and most respected divinity schools in the nation, the Chicago Theological Seminary.
The Human Kindness Foundation, founded by Bo and Sita Lozoff, is a non-profit organization which stresses a way of life based upon three common principles taught by the great sages of all religions: Simple living, a dedication to service, and a commitment to personal spiritual practice.

Besides its internationally respected Prison-Ashram Project, begun in 1973, the Foundation sponsors and schedules Bo Lozoff's talks, workshops and concerts. Bo has led events in hundreds of prisons, hospitals, churches, universities and spiritual centers around the globe. He is also an award-winning singer/songwriter whose performances and CDs, along with his books, tapes and videos, provide a significant amount of our funding.

Bo teaches a balance between "Communion," which is an entirely inward, transcendent experience, and "Community," which includes everything else -- our behavior toward others, our worldly goals, our treatment of the planet and its resources, etc. His writings and talks, therefore, center both on personal spiritual practice, and committed social activism. The Prison-Ashram Project encourages prisoners to take responsibility for changing their prisons, their communities, and the world.
