A Seasonal Offering with Scott & Shanti Medina and Friends.

Prajna is the abiding wisdom of our true nature. Interspirituality refers to our sense of spirit, deeply rooted in the heart and felt as the experience of Oneness. Join us for an evening of Prajna: Ancient Wisdom for the Modern Mind, as we attune to each season by abiding in our true nature, celebrating Oneness through ancient wisdom. Each evening will include music, meditation, mantra and embodied practices that root us in the heart while unraveling the stress and illusion of the modern mind.
