My #PledgeToListen

I pledge to listen to you. Will you listen to me?

I pledge not to demonize anyone who holds certain opinions, views or beliefs, but instead will try to understand their reasons and their arguments and express my own views in return. That’s it.

Understanding that whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly, we are called to

treat all lives and creation with love, integrity and respect to experience, extend and enhance peace. It is vital that we listen, with love and respect, to others and to the voice of conscience within, for it is the only way to live with integrity in relation to self, another, humankind and all of creation. Doing this as best we can, one day at a time, we experience, extend and enhance peace.

    Song: Look Me In The Eye

    Look Me in the Eye is a new song from the singer-songwriter team of Glen Phillips (Toad the Wet Sprocket) and Jason Karaban (Ani DeFranco, Sara Watkins) and inspired by the upcoming release of the documentary FREE TRIP TO EGYPT.

    Watch the Music video here:

    Look Me in the Eye was recently recorded by an impressive collection of singers, recording artists and studio musicians at the famed Boulevard Recording studio in Los Angeles, with lyrics that touch on our film’s themes of civility, deep listening and authentic, compassionate conversations.

    Produced by Justin Stanley (Eric Clapton, Sheryl Crow, Jet), Look Me in the Eye features lead vocals from Phillips and Karaban and a band that includes fellow singer-songwriter Val McCallum on guitar, bassist Sebastian Steinberg (Soul Coughing), drummer Pete Thomas (Elvis Costello), and keyboardists Benmont Tench (Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers).

    “I was truly inspired by the film and Glen felt the same way, so that made it easy to write the song,” said Karaban. “It was really pretty special seeing all of these amazing musicians come together and lend their talents to the project. Seeing how happy everybody was to be a part of it was amazing.”

    Here's a video showing how and why Look Me in the Eye was recorded:
