About the Event

In this conversation, we will see that premodern wisdom can coexist with modern ideals and postmodern freedom. I want to make stories that dare not to know their endings, that help us to understand our interdependence and to rethink our outlooks on life. I want to take part in creating stories where paradoxes are accepted, mystery is celebrated, and soulful living is integrated, with everyday practicalities. In these stories, we are the protagonists and the supporting cast, the writers and the fictional characters. The stories are not random, and they do not resolve neatly. They combine playful chaos with harmony, the rhythms of life with the inherent balance of the universe, systemic thinking with radical acceptance. Our stories are always part of a bigger story, which is itself part of an even larger, always evolving story. No matter how truthful your story is, it is partial. This is also true of the stories I will tell in this book, and of your reaction to them. Our stories expand as we evolve, and the hardest thing to do is to admit to ourselves that we are wrong or limited when the siratives that we hold to dearly do not align with the ever-dynamic nature of reality. In my own life, I have sometimes felt resistance to change when someone offered me a perspective that was different from my own.
