Improvisation is impossible without this affirmative commitment. What can we learn about the spiritual life by looking more deeply at what jazz players do and consider how we can integrate these principles in our own lives? Suggested Donation: $20

June 17 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm PDT
Incarnation Monastery, 1369 La Loma Avenue
Berkeley, CA 94708 United States
