The Shubert Theatre of Minneapolis
Produced by Dixie Treichel

The Sam S. Shubert Theatre opened in Minneapolis in 1910. An historical landmark and the oldest legitimate theater in Minneapolis, it has had many incarnations and monikers: as the Shubert, a broadway style performing theater; the Alvin, a vaudville/burlesque theater; the Minneapolis Evangelistic Auditorium; and the Academy, a cinema house.

In 1999 the Shubert was uprooted and relocated to Hennepin Avenue, and is now in the Guiness Book of World Records as the most massive building ever moved on rubber-wheeled dollies. Now called the Goodale Theater, it is currently under renovation and is part of a new, three-building complex, including the Historic Hennepin Center for the Arts. The complex, which includes an atrium, has been dubbed the Cowles Center for Dance and the Performing Arts. It is slated to open on September 9, 2011. Produced by Dixie Treichel.

Buddha’s Brain – Author, Researcher Rick Hanson

Jesus, Moses, the Buddha, and other great teachers were all born with a brain built essentially like anyone else’s. Then they used their minds to change their brains in ways that changed history.

With the new breakthroughs in neuroscience, combined with insights from thousands of years of contemplative practice, you, too, can shape your own brain for greater happiness, love, and wisdom.
Written with neurologist Richard Mendius, M.D., and with a Foreword by Daniel Siegel, M.D. and a Preface by Jack Kornfield, Ph.D., Buddha’s Brain: The Practical Neuroscience of Happiness, Love, and Wisdom joins modern science with ancient teachings to show you how to have greater emotional balance in turbulent times, as well as healthier relationships, more effective actions, and greater peace of mind.

Kinshasha shared an invigorating conversation with author and researcher Rick Hanson.
