- Who We Are
- What We Do
- Social Action
This presentation will first explore the relationships between music, especially improvised music, and Buddhist meditation with an emphasis on how music and meditation affect consciousness. These ideas will then be discussed in relation to the Brazilian educator Paulo Freire’s concept of critical social consciousness, (“conscientization” as translated from Portuguese). The presentation will conclude with a discussion of the ethical imperative in the age of Trump for consciousness-raising on both the personal and societal levels and how Freire’s “bottom up empowerment” mode of activism can achieve that end.
