Join Dr. Robert Holden, following his appearance on the PBS Special Shift Happens!, for an intimate evening in which Robert will talk about the people, the principles, and the practices that have changed his life and inspired his work.
In his inimitable style, Robert will mix storytelling, inquiries, meditations, poetry and music in a way that is inspiring and entertaining. There will also be plenty of time to ask Robert questions.
