The Art of Purpose

True Nature Talks


The Art of Purpose

with Emmanuel Jal

We build community by coming together to share our stories. It’s an essential human need.

Please join us July 19 for the first installment of True Nature(talks), a conversation series in which teachers, leaders and visionaries share their stories in hopes of helping others to live more connected, conscious and creative lives.

We are thrilled to welcome the inspiring and multi-talented Emmanuel Jal as our debut guest. 

At the age of eight Emmanuel was a child soldier in South Sudan. He is now a world-travelling musician, dancer and poet, who has performed for more than 500,000 people with the likes of Alicia Keys, Lauryn Hill and Peter Gabriel. He is a TED fellow, an actor, a philanthropist and a peace activist.

What carried him from the suffering of war to the international stage? PURPOSE. Everything he does is aligned with his purpose, which is to be part of the solution to the problem of war in his homeland and around the world. Through storytelling, collective reflection and conversation, Emmanuel will lead us on a journey to connect with, and begin to define our own personal purpose.

This event is especially suited for young creative leaders who are looking to find deeper purpose and meaning in their work. However, all are welcome!
