Public Addresses with Peter Forbes
Peter has given over 100 keynote addresses at major national and regional events in 25 states to those who care about the fate of people and the land. In 2012, Peter paused in his public speaking to observe, to create space to let all the stories settle, and to see what would arise. Peter is again accepting invitations to speak.
