June 9: What is Buddhist Action, with Hridayashri
Hridayashri will share some thoughts on Buddhist action and what it means to her. We will look at how the path of Right Action leads to a loosening of the sense of a separate self and a greater connection with all things. With space for all to explore their own practice of undertaking skillful action.
June 13: Special guests Lena Wolff and Future Chorus
Future Chorus formed in the summer of 2017 as a way of addressing the fallout of the political moment after the 2016 presidential election. Still going strong today, the chorus is made up of an ensemble of over 25 friends, artists and musicians who sing original and cover songs that are incantations to the forces that drive transformative socio-political resistance movements, offering messages of hope, resilience and empowerment to forge a better future. Artist Lena Wolff will share some thoughts on how to activate around issues of empathy and how we can generate sublime experiences in times of political and ecological unrest.
