FINDING YOUR BALANCE: Eastern Serenity Meets Western Activity
presented by Mankh
Thursday August 3, 2017
1:30 PM until 3:00 PM
A Cultural, Philosophical and Artistic presentation about what happens when East and West meet. From the East, The Way of Tao advises "going and pausing" on one's life-path. In the West, however, we are often told to "keep going and going and...", however Native Peoples’ ways bear many similarities with the East. Through Zen stories, music, poetry, current events, discussion, and more, this presentation will share ways to help learn about and balance East and West within. To read Mankh’s essay on the topic: East and West, More or Less.
