The Mind & Life Institute was honored to host this special livestream event with His Holiness the Dalai Lama. The program explored insights for individual and collective healing, integrating contemplation, science, and action, helping us to consider how crisis can be an opportunity to shift human consciousness and embrace our shared humanity.
For viewers in the United States, the livestream occurred on the holiday Juneteenth, the oldest nationally-celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery. It is our intention that the program embraced the spirit of the holiday through its emphasis on reflection, acknowledgement, and hope for the future.
