In this episode, Tricycle’s Editor and Publisher James Shaheen sits down with Sharon Salzberg and Succession actor Arian Moayed to discuss the power and practice of both theater and meditation. Arian is the co-founder of Waterwell, an organization working to tackle society’s issues through theater, art, and education. Arian also speaks about loss and growing up as an immigrant in the United States—as well as the hard choices immigrants must make in this country. It’s part of Tricycle Talks’ Real Change podcast series based on Sharon’s new book Real Change: Mindfulness to Heal Ourselves and the World, which offers a new perspective on how activism and meditation practice can uplift each other.
Their conversation is the final installment of the five-part series featuring Sharon’s book and the people in it who are creating change in their communities. Make sure to check out our episodes with Sharon Salzberg, Shelly Tygielski, and Michael Kink, and Daisy Hernández.
