On Saturday night Reality Sandwich had its first major event, Evolver: Wake Up and Dream, produced in partnership with Jivamukti Yoga School. I'm RS's Community Director, and now two days later I have nearly caught up on sleep and regained my voice. I want to express my thanks. I'd also like to share some of the intentions, inspiration, collaborations, problems, and magic that went into producing what was a remarkable event – in some ways staggeringly successful, while in others challenging and instructive.
