Wednesday, March 11 

Reading at Kramerbooks with Asali Solomon, Author of  Disgruntled
"A coming–of–age tale, a portrait of Philadelphia in the late '80s and early '90's, an examination of the impossible double-binds of race, Disgruntled is a novel about the desire to rise above the limitations of the narratives we're given and the painful struggle to craft fresh ones we can call our own."... "Disgruntled, effortlessly funny and achingly poignant, follows Kenya from West Philadelphia to the suburbs, from public school to private, from childhood through adolescence, as she grows increasingly disgruntled by her inability to find any place or thing or person that feels like home."

Opening Fiercely; Transformation through the Power of Opening Meditation event at MLK Library
"And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud became more painful than the risk it took to blossom." - Anais Nin "Opening is a cornerstone to transformation... Opening releases the grasping of our mind and emotions, creating an emotional fluidity where grief, sorrow and pain just don't really stick. Through opening to those who challenge us the most, we experience compassion and empathy. Through opening to the dark and hurt parts inside, we release the power they hold on us." Join Alev Gunay in a talk on the power of opening and how, using meditation-based techniques, opening brings you closer to the depths of your true self, creates a more fluid emotional arena, improves relationships and unlocks pathways to experience spiritual realms. Alev recently moved to DC after spending a year doing full-time meditation practices at the Clairvision School's retreat center in California.
