**Talks at Google*** series brings the world’s most influential thinkers, creators, makers and doers all in one place. Previous speakers include Eckhart Tolle, Thich Nhat Hanh and Sharon Salzberg.

"Wisdom is sometimes unexpectedly found in raw human emotions. In those parts of ourselves that we feel uncomfortable to look at. In this talk we will explore how meditation can be a tool to unlock that wisdom and aliveness. 

"Meditation is not only about stress-reduction. Nor is it about taming the mind, suppressing desires, or about becoming better or superior. It is surely not a grand self-improvement project. 

"We meditate not to get rid of parts of our personality that we do not like. Instead we meditate to relate to these parts with an even greater intimacy and compassion.

"As our relationship with our emotions and internal energy transforms, we experience a change in our perception of reality. We become available to ineffable beauty. We may experience our relation with the earth and nature in a new light. This practice helps us get in touch with our wild, primal and untamed creative force, and enables us to express itself in skillful ways." - Nirali Shah
