Author and founder of The Nap Ministry, Tricia Hersey, will be in conversation with Dean Bryan Brayboy.

    Location: Annenberg Hall, Room G08
    Details: Preston Klik's Ocean of Devotion Gong Meditation is a gentle, often quiet, but at times powerfully intense experience. It's a 90-minute acoustic journey with periods of verbal guidance. Preston plays a 36-inch Heart Gong, as well as crystal and Himalayan bowls, Native flute, monochord, handpan, ocean and frame drums, chimes, and more to provide a dynamic auditory experience. This richly cinematic musical odyssey-meditation is as beautiful to the eye as it is to the ear, heart, body, mind, and spirit.
