The Ties That Bind Us

Exploring the Underlying Oneness that Connects Us All

with Paula D’Arcy and Craig Hella Johnson

Come be with two of Austin’s greatest treasures as they weave a tapestry of connection through stories, reflections, and music.

Politics, the media, and civic unrest can cause us to focus on our differences and the seemingly wide gap between how each ‘side’ views the world.

Paula and Craig will remind us through powerful stories and music that no matter the surface differences, we are all connected. Grounded in and strengthened by their wisdom, we will leave more compassionate and open to new ideas to help our world flourish. Please join us for this inspiring virtual experience!


Sunday, September 27th


2:00PM – 4:30PM


$50.00 (partial scholarships available)


Virtual, via Zoom


Craig Hella Johnson and Paula D’Arcy
