Thanks Be to the Sea

PRESENTED ON APR 22, 2019
IN PORTLAND OR @ VOL 29

This is a declaration of interdependence. Through a group of 20 images and a single "poetic science" poem, Duncan Berry will reveal that whatever you do, wherever you live, each of us is deeply connected and dependent on the waters of the sea...With every breath we take, every thought we think and with every beat of our heart. Really.

The Past is Present

BY MEGHAN GABRIEL
@ VOL 29 ON APR 22, 2019

Despite all the modern advances of technology, we are still operating from reptile brains. Like an old iphone, there is a point where the new updates stop working. Our brains, nervous systems and bodies can only take so much. So how do we adjust and evolve as a species? The answer lies in the past, ancient teachings of mindfulness, yoga, meditation that are now resurfacing to teach us how to cope with the new hyperconnected world we are living in.
