Let Your Light Shine: Book Signing & Discussion with the Authors

April 11 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

$6 – $15

Naropa University in partnership with Holisitic Life Foundation are honored to host the Colorado book launch of Let Your Light Shine: How Mindfulness Can Empower Children and Rebuild Communities by Ali Smith, Atman Smith and Andrés González, founders of The Holistic Life Foundation in Baltimore, MD.

In the book, Ali Smith, Atman Smith, and Andrés González describe their experience teaching yoga, meditation, and breathwork to thousands of at-risk kids in Baltimore schools, helping them to develop deep reserves of patience, empathy, resolve, and—when needed—the righteous anger that fuels deep structural change. Twenty years in the making, this story details their work helping traumatized kids in one of America’s most underserved cities, and reveals how mindfulness tools can help children and communities not only survive but thrive. The book also shares hands-on mindfulness and meditation tools to empower readers to bring this same work to their own communities.
