Tricycle's 25th Anniversary Gala Celebration

Uncork the champagne: it’s time to celebrate! This year marks Tricycle’s quarter-century milestone. “What began in 1991 as a modest effort around founding editor Helen Tworkov’s kitchen table,” writes editor and publisher James Shaheen in our 25th anniversary issue, “is now an internationally distributed publication with an online presence reaching hundreds of thousands of practitioners.”

In honor of this special occasion, we invite you to join us on December 1 in Brooklyn, New York for a gala celebration. We hope to see you at what will certainly be a memorable evening.


Laurie Anderson

Laurie Anderson is one of America’s most avant-garde creative pioneers. She is best known for her multimedia performances and innovative use of technology. As a writer, director, visual artist, and vocalist, Anderson has created groundbreaking works that span the worlds of art, theater, film, and experimental music.

Philip Glass

Philip Glass is an Oscar-nominated American composer whose notable works include Einstein on the Beach, The Hours, and Notes on a Scandal. Glass, founder of the Philip Glass Ensemble, is acclaimed for his distinct minimalism and wide-ranging musical repertoire, including scores for opera, orchestra, dance, theater, and film.

Dr. Richard J. Davidson, PhD

Named one of “The 100 Most Influential People in the World” by Time Magazine in 2006, Dr. Richard J. Davidson, PhD, is Research Professor of Psychology and Psychiatry and founder of the Center for Healthy Minds at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Davidson’s research is broadly focused on the neural bases of emotion and emotional style as well as methods to promote human flourishing through meditation and contemplative practices.

C4 Ensemble

A unique, award-winning choral group, C4 is directed and operated collectively by its singing members. It is the first organization of its kind and one of few ensembles in the U.S. to focus exclusively on the music of our time, performing pieces written in the last 25 years. Now running in its 11th year, C4 continues to premiere and commission new choral works and mentor emerging singers, conductors, and composers.

About the organizer

In 1991, the Tricycle Foundation launched Tricycle: The Buddhist Review, the first magazine intended to present Buddhist perspectives to a Western readership. We have grown enormously since then, expanding to include daily articles online, interactive online courses, a podcast, film club, e-books, video dharma talks, live events, and more. For many, we are the central source of non-sectarian Buddhist teachings, practices, and news. We are a small but dedicated team based in New York City.
