Heidi Kuhn, Founder and CEO of Roots of Peace, is speaking Sunday, Aug 10 at 9:30 & 11:15 am. Her humanitarian non-profit organization is dedicated to the eradication of landmines by transforming landmines into bountiful agricultural fields world-wide. In 1997, deeply inspired by the late Princess Diana and her work to bring the landmine issue to the forefront of the international agenda, Heidi gave a simple toast in the living room of her home that the world may go from Mines To Vines(R), and launched what would become a global initiative and humanitarian effort to transform war-torn regions around the world.

Recently, Heidi has been to The Holy Land visiting with His Holiness Pope Francis and conducting a series of meetings with officials of the Israeli and Palestinian governments and the U.S. State Department. We look forward to receiving an update from Heidi about her latest work, and to give her our blessings for her future work as a Mystic Making a Difference!
