What would it mean to think, speak, and act from the heart?
How would such a reorientation affect one’s way of life, relationships, emotions, and identity itself? Through conscious breath, sacred sound and movement, prayer, and meditation, the transformational implications of focalizing consciousness in the heart will be explored.

Also with Pir Zia:
Ethics as a Nexus between Islam and the West
A Talk by Pir Zia Inayat-Khan
Followed by dialogue with Pir Zia Inayat-Khan
and Tenzin Priyadarshi of the Dalai Lama Center for Ethics and Transformative Values
Friday, November 30th, 7 PM
Stata Center Auditorium ( 32-123 ), Massachusetts Institute of Technology
Whereas religious systems differ markedly in their theological views and ritual practices, the world’s religions and enlightened philosophical traditions find themselves in perfect accord on the essential importance of ethical integrity. At a time when the Islamic world and the West seem locked in an interminable symbolic conflict fraught with global peril, the ethical values that unite Islam and the West are a timely topic for exploration and celebration.
All are welcome to attend this free event.
Sponsored by the Dalai Lama Center for Ethics and Transformative Values.
