Getting to Center--Marlee Grace in conversation with Sarah Faith Gottesdiener

Event date: 
Tuesday, December 1, 2020 - 7:30pm to 9:00pm

Charis welcomes Marlee Grace in conversation with Sarah Faith Gottesdiener for a celebration of Grace's highly anticipated collection, Getting to Center: Pathways to Finding Yourself Within the Great Unknown

Picking up where How to Not Always Be Working left off, Getting to Center is an empathetic offering to those who are looking for a roadmap for finding their way back to equilibrium. This book meditates on endings, grief and joy, ease, hope, addiction, and beginnings, pairing Marlee's own experiences and wisdom with practical exercises and tools for creating balance and understanding within the natural changes of life. 

Essential for anyone who feels overwhelmed and anxious about these unpredictable times, this gorgeous, thoughtful book is a hand to hold to feel less alone, and a guide to cultivating resources we can replenish and depend on in ourselves.

This event is free and open to all people, especially to those who have no income or low income right now, but we encourage and appreciate a solidarity donation in support of the work of Charis Circle, our programming non-profit. Charis Circle's mission is to foster sustainable feminist communities, work for social justice, and encourage the expression of diverse and marginalized voices. https://donatenow.networkforgood.org/CharisCircle?code=chariscirclepage
