When the Heart Speaks, Listen: Discovering Inner Wisdom

Event date: 
Saturday, February 23, 2019 - 5:00pm to 8:00pm

Join Charis in celebrating the release of Dr. Lerita Coleman Brown's book When the Heart Speaks, Listen: Discovering Inner Wisdom.

When Lerita Coleman, a 41-year-old single, African-American psychology professor, learns she has only 18 months to live without a heart transplant, anxiety overwhelmed her. The daunting challenge of medical procedures, medications and the unknowns of losing an organ that symbolized her core being haunted her. In desperation, she turned to her diseased heart for guidance about whether to live or die. What emerges are a series of remarkably wise and witty conversations with her old heart and the one she ultimately received during a transplant in 1995. The talks guide Lerita through a journey of transformation, which she shares in When the Heart Speaks, Listen--Discovering Inner Wisdom and offers as instructions on how to enter into your own heart dialogues. The revelation of her remarkable journey is that courage, wisdom and inner peace are available and can be experienced by anyone who chooses to listen to their heart.

Gather at 5pm to socialize, program with introductions, reading and interview begins at 6:00 pm. 

Charis will provide books for sale at the event and Dr. Brown will sign copies of her book

This event is free and open to the public.
