Seven Pillars offers you this free gift from our Vanishing Art Festival held last August.

As the wind and rains of Hurricane Irene were upon us, a small group of 20 or so participants remained to weather out the storm. We sat quietly together, listening to Pir Zia give this heartfelt and timely talk on Agency and Beauty.

What is our capacity to act intentionally and creatively considering the state of the world in our own time?

At the Abode of the Message in New Lebanon, New York on August 28, 2011.
