Following the non-violence philosophy of Ahimsa and the precepts of Mahatma Gandhi. Steven believes that we live in both a spiritual and physical world. Our individual and societal challenge is to live the middle way love, care, and respect for each other.

Although we are deep within one of Humanities darkest hours there is still incredible hope within the human spirit to find a way in this decade to create a world of nonviolence, peace, and happiness at the highest most enlightened level. 

To reach this level society must change course, and end the continual violence against itself, all sentient beings, and this very planet that sustains us.
