    Prolific artist, musician and lover of Mother Earth, Lonnie Holley treasures the discarded and nurtures the neglected, finding healing in the transformative power of art. This short documentary is not so much a portrait of the prolific artist and musician, as an experiential reflection on art as a way of life.

  • Yoga in Juvenile Detention (2020/06/11 10:00)
    Leslie Booker teaches yoga and meditation to youth in detention facilities in New York City through the Lineage Project. The youth at Horizon Juvenile Detention Center have been convicted for a range of offenses, some quite serious and violent. But as Booker points out, they are 13, 14, 15 years old -- little more than children -- and many of them have grown up in extremely trying circumstances. Before Booker introduced the teens to the practice of meditation, aggression and withdrawal seemed to be among their only options for managing the insurmountable stress of life both at home and in the detention facility. With this program, the youth experience relief, if even for an hour, and learn skills to make better decisions in their lives.
