In an uplifting conversation, actor and author Rainn Wilson and USC Dean of Religious and Spiritual Life Varun Soni will discuss the importance of spirituality during these socially distant times.

Wilson is best known for his Emmy-nominated portrayal of Dwight on NBC’s The Office, and has acted in JunoStar Trek: Discovery, and Six Feet Under. Today he is equally well known for his millions of Twitter followers and the philosophy website he co-founded. Launching a New York Times bestselling book of the same name, SoulPancake urges audiences to explore spirituality, creativity, love, truth, and science, and rethink our approaches to personal expression and happiness.

The THRIVE series of dialogues on wellbeing is part of USC AMPLIFIED, a new, campuswide speaker series that highlights diverse perspectives from some of today’s most engaging and dynamic figures in entertainment, business, politics, sports, science, the arts, and beyond. In this unprecedented time of struggle and isolation, THRIVE will provide critical opportunities for the USC community to feel connected, inspired, and empowered.
