LECTURE AND CONVERSATION: Robert V. Taylor, author
Lecture and Conversation: “How to be Happy, Cultivate your Imagination and Change the World” Robert V. Taylor, author, and Amanda Greene
Robert V. Taylor is a nationally recognized leader, author ("A New Way to Be Human 7 Spiritual Pathways to Becoming Fully Alive"), and sought after speaker who invests his life in helping individuals and organizations to realize their full human potential and impact in the world. Born and raised in South Africa, Robert saw firsthand the difference that could be made when oppressed people are given the freedom to discover their voices, trust their imaginations, and find the courage to be who they are. He continues to explore integrating personal spirituality and values-driven strategies with the question of how we each leave a footprint of compassion in the world—both at home and in the corporate marketplace.
"A New Way to Be Human" is an invaluable guide for individuals’ intent on transforming their lives, revolutionizing our society, and refining our world.
From his miraculous physical healing as a teenager in Cape Town, to fighting apartheid alongside Desmond Tutu, to his eventual appointment as one of the United States’ highest ranking, openly gay Episcopal priests, Taylor’s life shows anyone how to integrate personal spirituality with a legacy of compassionate purpose in the world—and invites others to do the same. He currently lives in Seattle, Washington.
