The Peaceful World Foundation was honored to attend and participant with our grantee, the Dalai Lama Fellows program located at the University of Virginia Contemplative Sciences Department. Our Executive Director, Heidi Majano asked Anthony DeMauro to share his impressions during this festive and animated event.

By Anthony DeMauro

This 10th anniversary celebration was such a powerful reminder for me that there are human beings all around the world who are deeply committed to making the world a better place, and by connecting in beloved community, everyone’s efforts are affirmed, energized, and amplified.

The radical thing about Dalai Lama Fellows is that each person is able to show up authentically, bringing their unique identities, cultures, and gifts to a space where they are honored and harnessed toward the collective good.

Such a space is so rare, and I am honored to be a part of it and play my small role in its 10-year legacy.

Thank you Anthony for bringing us together.

-Heidi Majano, Executive Director of the Peaceful World Foundation
