SAM is designed on an original architecture, with meditation as the common thread. Lively stage and audience interactions bring new perspectives, weaving scientific and humanistic panel discussions with sensations and emotions inspired by art and meditation. Topics include: philosophy, history, business, education, health, and science.
“The art of wholeness comes from the idea that our human potential can flourish through caring attention to ourselves, to others and to the reality in the moment. Wholeness is as far away from the mainstream view of well-being as it is from malaise. Many of our social conditionings and erroneous perceptions of reality lead to unhappiness. The awareness and discernment cultivated with a meditation practice can lead each of us towards wholeness through our unique mindful and embodied presence. It balances body intelligence, heart intelligence, and rational mind to reach the source of wisdom, strength and love, to guide our decisions and everyday life actions. The art of wholeness invites us to change according to our ability, to better answer humankind’s profound aspiration for happiness, therefore contributing to sustainable environmental engagement and societal transformation, which are more urgent today than ever before.”
