Event Details

April agenda for Techno-Activism 3rd Mondays. 
This event occurs every month, held simultaneously 
in different cities throughout the world

Activism can leave many of us mentally and physically exhausted. Join us on on 4/21 for some hip hop performances and mediation guidance to recoup the soul and refresh the mind. Lets take advantage of the amazing art, creativity, and music that exists in our community! 

- We will be collecting a $3 donation which we will donate to the Peace Poets. 

- Feel free to BYOB or BYOW

We look forward to seeing you at the TA3M celebration! 

Hip Hop Performance  
Music will be lead by Luke Nephew of the Peace Poets, a collective of artists that celebrate, examine and advocate for life through music and poetry. Their art can take you on a journey from the Boogie Down to Berlin, from the border to the bodega. Peace Poets' style emphasis lyricism, rhythm, and authenticity. They hail from the Bronx and have been rocking the mic since 2005. A sample: 

Guided Meditation

He is a student of the Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche, and has trained in the Shambhala Buddhist community as a teacher and meditation instructor.
