Happy Hour Event: "Stumbling Toward Samadhi" - a world premiere movie event
Jason Magness & Team YogaSlacker

Saturday, September 20 — 5:45pm - 6:30pm
Special Events


India is arguably the most vibrant and chaotic country in the world, where the extremes of humanity all mingle and collide in a tumultuous cascade of people, religions, cultures and ideas. Yet somewhere in the middle of it all, the western world searches for stillness and bliss.

Join the YogaSlackers (a bunch of yogic athletes as eclectic as mother India herself) as they embark on a journey to race an "auto rickshaw" smack dab through the middle of it all. Perhaps careening around at 30 mph on a glorified lawnmower isn't the best way to go about finding eternal peace...

Check out the trailer here

Light snacks and wine will be served. Open to all.
