On the evening of August 19, 2017, New Acropolis Bangalore was host to a Public Talk on “Living a Life of Inspiration”. The Lecture presented ideas from various ancient cultures that relate to the nature of inspiration, and the work that we as individuals can do to connect to inspiration. While many might relate to inspiration to an emotional experience or a mental phenomenon, is there a source that is beyond these levels? From here, the need for inspiration in today’s world was explored – how living a life connected to inspiration can lend meaning to our lives, and enable us to inspire others. The lecture was followed by an interactive guided discussion in the line of a Socratic Dialogue with the audience.
