Spirituality and The Resistance Panel

Sunday, 4-5:30   Rm 7

The 2016 election made it clear that America is a nation deeply divided along racial, cultural, gender and class lines. The resistance to Donald Trump is unprecedented in volume and scope but millions are still trapped between denial and disaster. This much-needed discussion will explore Deepak Chopra’s powerful statement that Trump’s victory “has stripped away the façade” and forced us all to face our country’s collective shadow. Selected from the fields of spirituality, personal development, and social justice, our diverse panel of experts will discuss self-care in this Trumpian age and how to best use this time as a magnificent opportunity for spiritual growth.
