Join acclaimed playwright Lynn Nottage and renowned meditation teacher Sharon Salzberg for a special evening exploring creativity as a healing and disrupting force, the power of the contemplative space and the responsibility of engagement.
“My personal feeling is that it’s an artist’s responsibility to be engaged with the culture. And when the culture is going through turmoil, I think an artist can’t ignore that.” – Lynn Nottage
“We learn and grow and are transformed not so much by what we do but by why and how we do it.” —Sharon Salzberg
Through brief guided meditations and longer interpersonal dialogues, the evening will be an exploration of the possibility a more awakened life.
