"If you can behave with compassion for yourself, for those you care about and for the whole world — even while knowing you are going to die one day and this is the only chance you get to show and experience love — then you are truly wise."

Greg Epstein

"In the Sikh tradition, wisdom flows from a deep and profound experience of love — love that frees us to “see no stranger.” Those who see through these eyes are called gurmukhs — oriented toward the truth of Oneness rather than trapped within the illusion of a small separate self. Each of us can walk this path, no matter our age, faith, race, gender, country or creed. Such wisdom is our birthright."

Brazilian artist Henrique Oliveira recently completed work on his largest installation to date at Museu de Arte Contemporânea da Universidade in São Paulo. Oliveira uses the repurposed wood pieces as a skin nailed to an organic framework that looks intentionally like a large root system. Because the space provided by the museum was so immense, the artist expanded the installation into a fully immersive environment where viewers are welcome to enter the artwork and explore the cavernous interior.
