Nurturing Beauty in a Broken World

“In a time of destruction, create something: a poem, a parade, a community, a school, a vow, a moral principle; one peaceful moment,” writes Maxine Hong Kingston. During difficult times, how do we find what is beautiful and allow that to nourish our spirits? Join us to explore how we can be nurtured and healed by beauty.
