Sundays @ 4:30pm

Join Grace Minnesota on select Sundays from 4:30-6:30pm. In a casual setting, we discuss spirituality, art, and other big ideas after listening to recorded lectures and interviews. Programs are grouped by theme and are drawn from Krista Tippett's On Being, TED Talks, Aspen Ideas Festival, and other sources. Upcoming themes for 2012: happiness, play, Islam, China, the brain, technology, parenting, and nature. For a list of past topics, click here.

Unless otherwise noted, all discussions will be held at Clouds in Water Zen Center (308 Prince St., #120, St. Paul - map). Street parking in the neighborhood is free on Sundays, but due to construction in the area, please allow extra time to find parking. It's also free to attend the discussions, but please consider a small donation to support the use of the space.
