In Conversation: Compassionate Action with Peter Coyote & Dick Grace
October 19, 2018

Napa Valley Museum Yountville continued its popular “In Conversation” series of speaking events with “Compassionate Action,” a discussion of how to turn our individual compassion into positive action for the benefit of others, our world and ourselves. Actor and activist Peter Coyote joined his friend: vintner and humanitarian Dick Grace, for a frank and lively exchange of ideas about channeling frustration into renewed energy, turning anger into empathy, and how to avoid feeling overwhelmed by the scope of the challenges facing us by making small steps individually, or as part of a larger movement, to build the foundation for lasting change.
