It's almost time for the
release of Season 2 of our AWAKEN podcast hosted by
Raveena Aurora! The first two episodes will go live on
Tuesday, October 4.Subscribe now in theApple Podcast App, Spotify, or wherever you listen
to podcasts to get notified of the release.
The new season is inspired by the Mandala Lab and explores the
transformative power of emotions by using a Tibetan Buddhist mandala
as a guide. In seven episodes, Buddhist teachers, writers, artists, and
activists wrestle with five difficult feelings: anger, pride,
attachment, envy, and ignorance. We take a fresh look at how emotions can
influence our day-to-day experiences and what they might be able to teach
us if we get curious.
On Friday, October 7,we'll be
celebrating the new season with a special K2 Friday Night AWAKEN Launch Party
with Raveena Aurora. The night will feature specialty cocktails, music
by DjLoga, a special tour of the Mandala Lab, a meditation moment,
podcast listening party, temporary tattoos, and free admission to all the
galleries. Join us!
