There are times in all our lives when we experience a sense of wonder, a moment of awe, when time stops and the world in and around us opens up in brilliance. We don’t need extraordinary circumstances to experience awe but we might need help discovering our personal gateways for connecting with awe. Science now shines a brighter light on the benefits of awe, illuminating timeless methods for accessing it by exploring the mind through meditation, creativity, and the arts. 

How does the experience of awe and inquiry into its nature help us feel fully alive and able to cultivate kind connections in our global society?

Be part of a journey

The program will open on Thursday, August 3, with a teaching and exploration of awe by Mitra Mark Power, our host for this interconnected series of six conversations with authors, artists, actors, meditation instructors, explorers, storytellers, and more. Each guest will talk about their diverse and personal connection with awe, exposing similarities that might awaken curiosity about our own individual connection. 

Throughout the series, in conversations with our guests, we will explore the themes of Awe, Creativity, Joy and the Present Moment, Curiosity, and Tender Heart. To support your inquiry, we will offer contemplations and practices, a chance to create your own Book of Awe, and provide time for your questions. 

Our aspiration is for Be Wise Go Kind 2023: Awaken Awe to be an opportunity to deeply inquire into the nature of awe, going beyond hope and fear, and inviting you to make it a lifelong path. 

Please join us on this experiential journey!

About Mitra Mark (presenter and host)

MARK POWER will open our series with an introductory talk and then host the following conversations with our guests. He is a longtime student of the Buddha’s teachings, studying with his teacher, Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche, since the early 1990s. Like so many, he came to this path seeking to engage a larger, kinder, more playful sense of being. His compassionate care for others shines throughout his leadership roles at Nalandabodhi and his work as a chaplain and life coach. Today, Mitra Mark joyfully explores the interplay of dharma, relationships, leadership and the arts, encouraging  generosity of heart, humor and wisdom in every area of life.
