Please join us for this special night with visiting senior teacher Acharya Arawana Hayashi in the final countdown to her three-day Social Presencing Theater workshop at our centre on October 18th – 20th.

Creating an enlightened society encompasses many aspects of life, including art and culture. The arts can express fundamental beauty, help us appreciate our everyday world, and awaken us to the world’s potential. Acharya Hayashi, a dancer and choreographer, will speak about various forms of contemplative art—such as flower arranging, photography and movement—and their role in society.

Everyone is welcome.

6:45 PM: Welcome. Meet people and get your bearings.
7:00 PM: Meditation instruction and practice. Abbreviated introductory instruction will be available at 7:00 PM. (To learn about meditation instruction see our Meditation page.)
7:30 PM: Talk and discussion. “Art and Enlightened Society,” with Acharya Arawana Hayashi
8:30 PM: Social. Mingle with others who share your curiosity and interest.
We provide meditation cushions, benches and chairs. Bring your friends!
