09:00 - 11:00 PDT on Sunday, 1 August

This social event will offer a shared art experience followed by a spirit-centred dialog. Dr. Kanniks Kannikeswaran, an internationally known music composer and music educator, will engage us with a two- part video presentation. Part one is for celebrating the connection between the monsoons and Indian ragas, to show how the ancient music is connected to the ‘Elements’. Part two is based on the Rivers of India, to trace the erosion of the reverential attitude towards rivers, and the consequent shift in our ‘water awareness’. After the shared multi-media presentation, we will reflect on our work, share ideas, and discuss the future of water and other global challenges.
