How can we best be present, awake and engaged in this time? Even as our hearts break and our anger and frustration rise, what is courageous action? How do insight and compassion inform our courage?

In this evening of conversation, music and poetry, they will share their experiences and invite you to reflect on your own, as together we explore what it means to be both wise and courageously engaged today.
