Reflections from the Global Values Summit
Posted by Karin Miller on October 5, 2016

I have shared the outcomes of this process in my recently published book, Global Values: A New Paradigm For A New World and am now watching the momentum materialize before my eyes.
We are living in a time of great turmoil. Karin Miller, author of Global Values, offers a solution that transcends religion, culture and political viewpoint.
