The Meditative Life 2018: Meaning, Happiness, and Connection

Feb. 7–27, 2018

Our annual series explores not only meditation and mindfulness, but also the many ways in which we investigate the different realms of the human experience. This year’s films draw us closer to Thich Nhat Hanh and the Dalai Lama, steep us in music and silence, and bring us into the worlds of tai chi and the monastic life—and even to Folsom State Prison, where inmates participate in a powerful form of personal growth and exploration. Join us for an immersion into different and provocative ideas, starting with an unforgettable evening that will glow with the radiant wisdom of Ram Dass and a visit with Krishna Das, live on stage.

Programmed by Brian Ackerman, Karen Sloe Goodman, and Sharon AvRutick
