Artists and meditators from around the globe are gathering in celebration of our awakening world. In the presence of the sacred Piprahwa Relics of the Buddha, inspiring art and heartfelt speakers, we engage our hearts and minds as we pave a path to Peace. Hosted by the University of the West located in Rosemead, CA, we are inviting everyone to participate in this week long festival celebrating our expanding consciousness.

I have the honor to share my work among many talented artists from around the world. The exhibition will run all week from Sept 16-21. Opportunities to participate in blessings, guided meditations and interactive art experiences are available to the public.
Sunday afternoon, September 17, I will personally be participating in a collaborative art project followed by a lively discussion:
Colors of Music: Artist Collaboration
Artists are painting music, musicians are playing colors and forms… A three-hour musical art meditation done by celebrated artists and musicians is a truly spectacular sight. Nikolai Makarov, Sherab Khandro, Ola Hikari, Izabel Raa, Liana Moon and other Budart artists will create a collaborative piece together with the SAMHEY band. Witness the incredible art performance and see how the dividing lines between people, sounds and images disappear.
A panel discussion with distinguished artists on why and how meditative techniques can expand, deepen and illuminate one’s experience of art and reveal the ultimate nature of existence.
Wednesday evening you are invited to join me as we empower our lives through the Wisdom of our Hearts:
The power to uplift our world and all the people in it lies in the palm of our hands. Like the power found in a single atom, the ability to create great change can be found in the smallest of acts.
Each one of us is a vibrant, pulsating center of creation, every thought, every word, every deed setting energy in motion.
How do we harness this magnificent creative power to pave a path to Peace?
