"Paradoxically, thanks to the virus,

our world's spiritual crisis,

we have time and opportunity to retreat,

to live more at home,

to deepen and become more what we truly are—meditating artists.

We can listen like Milarepa to the quality of our own silence.


"From that deep place,

we create in a more spontaneous way

and each in our unique language

can share with like-minded friends

our intimate take on the eternal questions:

Where do I and my family come from?

What moves me now?

Where can I, and we, go from here?"

—Jean-Claude van Itallie
