The Heart of Who We Are (In-Person & Online)

July 17 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm PDT


Join teacher, author, nonprofit founder, and speaker Caverly Morgan for an engaging book talk from her latest body of work, The Heart of Who We Are: Realizing Freedom Together, published through Sounds True.

When Caverly reentered society after eight years as a Zen monk, she was confronted with a question many of us are asking these days: When faced with the enormity of the collective problems before us, how can one individual’s spiritual practice make a tangible difference in our world?

In The Heart of Who We Are, Caverly explores how meditation, mindfulness, and contemplative technologies designed for the realization of personal freedom can—and must be—applied collectively. She inspires us to put our values into action through connecting with the deepest truth of who we are—then using that understanding to transform our own lives and the world we share.

Join us for a guided meditation and talk with Caverly that will be followed by an engaging discussion that will nourish your practice. She will also share some information about the latest development with Peace in Schools—the nonprofit she founded, which created the nation’s first semester-long, credited mindfulness course within high schools. The program is aiming to expand into Seattle!
