Natural Awakenings Richmond

Gandhi Grandson to Speak Locally

Arun Gandhi

Sponsored by Unity of Richmond, Arun Gandhi, grandson of Mahatma Gandhi, will speak about non-violence, his grandfather’s legacy and his own life’s work in non-violence and activism, along with Bethany Hegedus, co-author of the book Grandfather Gandhi, from 6:30 to 9 p.m., April 2, at Deep Run High School.

Before the talk, the evening will open with performances by some of Richmond’s leading groups and performers committed to non-violence: Drums No Guns, actress and singer Katrina Lewis, the Unity Band and the Goochland Hindu Center’s Sri Sai Dancers, appearing in Benedictum, choreographed for this event and for world peace.

A wonderful opportunity was recently announced as a follow-up to this talk. From April 25 to 29, you are invited to meditate with Tibetan monks in residency at Unity of Richmond, located at 800 Blanton Avenue, to help create peace and harmony for oneself and the world.

Cost: $25. Event Location: 4801 Twin Hickory Rd., Glen Allen. For more information, visit
