1. "Honoring Tagore: Sacred Earth." a performance by Ragamala Dance Company at On Being on Loring Park on June 14, 2014.

    A riveting performance by Ragamala Dance that remembers and lives forward the poetry and the art of Rabindranath Tagore through the Indian classical dance form Bharatanatyam.

    My life has been one long secret,
    all of it flowing towards you:
    lost hopes, hidden love, everything
    a way to whisper in your ear.
    Whatever else you are,
    you are also the coolness of that dust
    which lies quietly under the long shadows
    of my small hedge.
    One final look from you
    and I'll be gone.
    Like a bride,
    I will leave my home and meet you,
    alone, in the huge solitude of night.

    (Excerpt from Gitanjali by Rabindranath Tagore, tr. by Jim Moore)

  3. September 6, 2011 ~ St. Paul's Chapel (New York, New York)

    In the days and months after 9/11, St. Paul's Chapel became the hub where thousands of volunteers and rescue workers received round-the-clock care. It was a moving setting to explore how 9/11 changed us as a people — and to ponder the inward work of living with enduring grief and unfolding understanding. From a live conversation at the edge of Ground Zero, The New Yorker's Hendrik Hertzberg, journalist and novelist Pankaj Mishra, and theologian Serene Jones.

Krista and Paul look at the transition from "Speaking of Faith" to "Being" through this lens, and share segments from the program including listener-generated stories and interviews with special guests.
