Registration is free.

This is a panel discussion exploring the transformative power of contemplative practice, toward addressing the critical situation of our twenty-first century global society. Panelists representing Buddhist, Christian, and secular traditions of contemplative and meditative practice will engage with the audience on various aspects of the theme, and present examples from their own life journey and experience. In cooperation with the Office of Spiritual Formation, it will be held in celebration of the 25th anniversary celebration of the Maria Kannon Zen Center in Dallas, Texas.

Parking is available for $5 in the lot under the Meadows Museum of Art.

If you or a member of your party need to be dropped off close to the entrance of the hall, please stop at 5901 Bishop (Elizabeth Perkins Prothro Hall) before parking.
