Recording: Featured Session: The Revolutionary Power of Creativity, Mar 16, 2023

What happens when two dreamers come together to discuss the power of creativity? How do the dreams we wish and work for help shape the world around us?

From poverty to wars, bombs, and shootings, the reality of suffering surrounds us every day. Whether our personal suffering or the suffering of others, somewhere at every moment, there lives a tragedy. There lives poverty, sickness, heartbreak, racism, hatred, injustice, and loss. In the face of such a chaotic world, to be an artist, musician, writer, or creative is a revolutionary act.

Join the discussion between two dreamers about cultivating community, awareness, and harmony with our surroundings. Find out how a Grammy-nominated musician, singer, songwriter, poet, illustrator, actor, certified yoga and mindfulness meditation instructor--Valerie June, and entrepreneur, author, label president, record store owner, and musician--Nabil Ayers use an array of artistic paths to inspire and create sunshine in a sometimes shadowy world.
