For our August gathering on the theme of Critical, writer & speaker Enuma Okoro will speak to the value & power of questions. Putting our desires for answers aside, & remaining open & receptive to questions, where they come from, to whom they are directed, & what they seek to access, Okoro suggests ways we might open or block pathways for more expansive living with ourselves or one with one another. Join us on August 5 to discover how questions can guide, transform, & challenge us.
