Let Your Light Shine: A Fellowship Forum with Ali & Atman Smith and Andres Gonzalez (Webinar)
October 17, 2022
Monday, October 17, 2022, 3:00pm-4:30pm (PT)
Hosted by the Garrison Institute. This special Forum invites you to co-explore with authors Ali Smith, Atman Smith, and Andres Gonzalez as they reflect on how mindfulness tools can help children and communities not only survive – but thrive.
The Garrison Institute Fellowship Forum is a series of conversations with extraordinary leaders with expertise and experience in awareness-based contemplative wisdom, the science of interconnection, generative action, and collective healing. Co-facilitated by the Garrison Institute Fellows and Fellowship Director Dr. Angel Acosta, this discussion will be an insightful and generative experience to process this current moment – in community. Audience members will have a front seat to this compelling discussion and have the opportunity to engage in the dialogue by asking questions.
In their new book, Let Your Light Shine: How Mindfulness Can Empower Children and Rebuild Communities, the founders of The Holistic Life Foundation describe how they have spent the past twenty years teaching yoga, meditation, and breathwork to thousands of at-risk children in Baltimore schools helping them to develop deep reserves of patience, empathy, resolve, and —when needed—the righteous anger that fuels deep structural change. Their work has received wide national attention due to their remarkable results: The schools that have participated in their programs have seen suspension rates plummet and graduation rates go through the roof.
