Leo Burke is Professor and Director of the Global Commons Initiative at the Mendoza College of Business, the University of Notre Dame. In this capacity he teaches courses on the commons to undergraduates, MBAs and Executive MBAs. From December 2000 through June 2008, he served as Associate Dean and Director of Executive Education. In 2009, he co-founded the Anthroposphere Institute, with Carolyn Lee and Kathy Skerritt.
In this video, Leo talks about the new book, Prior Unity, containing Adi Da's wisdom about world peace, cooperative community, and much more. Prior Unity follows on the wisdom in Adi Da's Not-Two Is Peace, containing excerpts from the earlier book as well as much new material.
This books message is that the impulse to peaceful, cooperative coexistence is humanity's "true north". The impulse comes from our root-intelligence as one single species, and, at the same time, reflects the inherent unity of all life. Leo emphasizes the necessity for an approach based on this prior unity, if there is to be a sustainable future for planet earth.
