This event is an hour-long dialogue followed by questions from the audience. Registration is required for access to seating before the event starts.

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar is an internationally renowned humanitarian and spiritual leader, an ambassador of peace and human values. Through his life and work, Sri Sri has inspired millions around the world with a vision of a violence-free, stress-free world. His organizations are two of the world’s largest volunteer-run organizations: the Art of Living Foundation, an educational organization with a presence in over 150 countries, and the International Association for Human Values (IAHV), a humanitarian organization which provides trauma relief and promotes societal responsibility and human values in a range of international political, economic and social spheres.
According to Forbes magazine, his organization ’emphasizes meditation as a way to relieve stress and prevent violence, commands an enormous following both in India and around the world, cuts across religious lines, and offers practitioners a tool to deal with urban angst. Sri Sri has also pioneered numerous service projects around the country and the world that include peace initiatives in Sri Lanka, Kashmir and Kosovo; disaster and trauma relief post the South Asian tsunami as well as Hurricane Katrina; prison rehabilitation programs and educational initiatives in India and beyond; rural empowerment programs for women, and much more. His organization is credited with creating an extensive international grassroots, volunteer-based movement for social change. Sri Sri has been an invited speaker at the United Nations, European Parliament, Wharton Business School, Stanford Graduate School of Business and has been the recipient of numerous international honors and awards.
