Opening Reception: Nov. 7th, 7:00 PM - 11:00 PM

Studio Bongiorno, 500 Lincoln St., Santa Clara, CA PH: 408 217-9346
The "Healing The Planet, Healing Ourselves" exhibit addresses the problem of human suffering as well as environmental issues that result from this suffering. Our current ways of living need to change. Through action, education, and meditation, we can all be part of the solution. Greed and loss of connection, due to grasping at self, has led to a new awareness. It is crucial to have a balance of nature in order to continue feeding the world and us. First, we must heal ourselves of this grasping to become a strong voice for change. As a part of this healing we must realize our true nature as compassionate beings, and remove the delusions that cause us to be unaware of this nature. It is the process of learning how to see clearly that we have this nature.
Nature needs no lessons on how to survive: we do. Today, as we work towards healing our differences, and ourselves, more of us are becoming a positive catalyst for change. We are starting to move in the right direction!
As artists we have a responsibility to bring awareness of these issues to the public. The arts have always been important to world history and we are proud to be part of this exhibit.
