Join us for a live talk with Kelsey Blackwell on Wednesday, March 25 at 7pm ET.

The Buddha said, "within this fathom-long body and mind is found all the teachings." Societally however, we have been trained to value rational thought over feeling, efficiency over inclusion, certainty over the unknown and put our head before our body. Given the social and environmental challenges we now face, now is the time to remember and connect with the guiding wisdom that resides in our tissues.

An experiential journey into how the buddha's words at the moment of enlightenment, "The earth is my witness," is a compassionate and powerful call to embodied political, and spiritual action. We will journey through singing together, gentle movement, meditation, writing and discussion to explore the dimensions of this call.

The cost for this talk is $10 for the General Public and $20 for Patrons who wish to pay-it-forward. We ask that Groups and Meditation Centers to please pay within the $40-$60 range.
