    I believe that any person sitting across from me is a sacred human being; and, that if I had the same life experience as this person across from me, I would see life exactly how they see life. So, when I listen with compassion to this “other” person, I see the sacredness of their being, underlying whatever story they may bring to the conversation.

    Because I believe in religious diversities and see a future where all “religion” gather together in the same space to worship in the way that speaks to each person. Communion for Catholics, prayer mats for Muslims, yoga position for Buddhists… all in the same room at the same time.

    I was deeply moved by the screening in Ottawa and so impressed with the vision Tarek has to promote respect for all humans regardless of their religion or culture. Truly listening allows us to see the humanity in the other and to focus on our similarities rather than our differences.
