How do we escape the Matrix? How do we find freedom, encounter the real, and know what's real? And what does Buddhism have to say about it?

With the new Matrix film, the rapid growth of virtual reality platforms, and the recognition of the infinite silos of human experience, the questions of "How do we get free from the Matrix" and "What is reality?" seem more pertinent than ever. As we start questioning some of our assumptions, everything can seem "constructed" and "imaginary.” What's really going on? Can Buddhist thought shed light on these questions? How do we find true freedom?

Join us for an evening to look into these timely issues! Professor Doug Powers of Dharma Realm Buddhist University will be leading the conversation. Expect a fun and lively dialogue.
