About The Talk & Meditation

We look around and may wonder, Where is this world going? Or, How can I make a difference? There is hope! In reality, we live in an interconnected world from which it is impossible to separate ourself. By realizing this we will feel truly connected to others, deeply appreciating the world in which we live, and the people within it.  By recognizing and living within this reality of interconnection we can purify our mind of all negativity and develop the courage of compassion. From our positive pure mind we will be able to purify our world and everyone within it! Join us for this enlightening and inspiring lecture in honor of Earth Day.

Everyone welcome!
