Frank Warren had an idea...by sharing a burden we carry, anonymously, we could reduce shame and cultivate freedom, serenity and compassion for others. PostSecret is a collection of those revealed secrets. Shared on over a million postcards to date; part art project, part cultural storytelling, Frank will share his wisdom, humor and grace. Join us on November 7, 2019 at the Jackson Theater in Santa Rosa to hear his talk, see the postcards and say hello to the people who may have a secret just like yours.
This event supports Buckelew Programs mental health and addiction recovery services including the suicide prevention hotline and programs for 4 counties in the North Bay. Buckelew Programs helps people with mental health and addiction challenges lead healthier, more independent lives by providing treatment tailored to their unique needs.
