Presenter Series LIVE!

Join us for a continuation of our Wisdom Gathering online... LIVE chanting, conversation, and connection!

Featuring musician Benjy Wertheimer on

Music's Transcendent Magic:
Cultivating Compassion



In this FREE live experience, you will:

  • Chant mantras for peace with a global community for 10 minutes to start off the event, harmonize ourselves, and amplify "the peace channel."
  • Enjoy nourishing conversation with our respected presenters to help deeply embody our peacemaking skills.  
  • Connect by asking questions, adding your voice to the topic discussion, or simply celebrating mutual hope with fellow kindred people.

Music's Transcendent Magic:
Cultivating Compassion

Our dear Benjy Wertheimer joins us to deepen the conversation on musical self-care and compassionate response within a fracturing wellness community.

Benjy Wertheimer is an award-winning musician, composer, vocalist, producer and multi-instrumentalist. One of his peace mantra songs, Purnamadah, has over 18,000,000 plays on Spotify.

We expect the conversation with Benjy to unfold these themes:

  • Maintaining a sense of listening and intellectual humility
  • Being an instrument for music (or other creative/devotional modalities) to flow through, channeling the timeless balm for our hearts and spirits in a way that nothing else can.
  • Asking, where can we go from here, as a community? How can we cultivate musical and devotional moments of unity, especially when we're unable to share physical space?

We can't wait to bask in a moment of unity with YOU in real time online! We hope it'll be a breath of fresh air, music to your soul, a warm welcome hug for your precious, tender self!


Please note that registration and a few minutes of preparation are required for this free online event.
