Robert V. Taylor joins us for a Valentines Day Special to help us cultivate an open heart. We will focus on love that goes far beyond the romantic realm. Diving deeply into his story, Robert’s anti-apartheid work led him to refuse to be drafted into the South Africa Military which was compulsory for all white males. Such a refusal comes with life imprisonment! Faced with the label of being a “traitor” or a “collaborator” he knew he could not accept that apartheid was “the will of God.” “I went to see Archbishop Desmond Tutu for advice on how to survive imprisonment. Instead, he told me that I would not go to jail, but that he would arrange for me to leave the country.” 10 days later Robert arrived in New York City and began graduate work that deepened his life’s calling to help people experience a oneness with others grounded in compassion, love and mercy. Robert is President of the New York based Desmond Tutu Peace Foundation and lives on a rural farm in the Pacific Northwest. He has dedicated his life to helping individuals and organizations live beyond their limitations. He challenges leaders to live beyond the fears and self-assessments that hold them hostage. Robert is the voice of a generation empowered by the potential of living beyond the restrictions of labels. He is passionate about helping people find a deeper connection to themselves and the world at large. Author of A New Way to Be Human, Robert shares his own struggles and global journeys as an example of what is possible when we all live beyond labels.
