The Tree of Life – The Form of Creation

Alternating Tuesdays at 7pm (April 14, April 28)

A talk by Dovid Krafchow explaining the common configuration shared between the Earth, the solar system and the human form.  

Questions about life will be explored:
Who is Creator? Where is the Creator? What is creation? Where are we? Why are we here?

The Tree of life is composed of ten luminaries depicted as the Sun and the nine planets, the seven continents plus the three oceans and the human being made in three triangles: head, torso and hips plus the power of speech in the mouth. 
Within the Tree of Life is the answer to all questions.
Dovid Krafchow has been studying the ancient Jewish mystical secrets for fifty years and has written 15 books, including Kabbalistic Tarot published by Inner Traditions.

Memoir-Writing Presentation & Workshop: Sponsored by Storyflect

POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

Have you ever wanted to share your life story? Are you searching for a way to capture your legacy and leave a mark on the world?

If so, it’s time to write your memoir!

This event is designed to help you begin the process of translating your identity into a self-defining book. Whether you want to create a record of your life, share past experiences with others, or capture your love story in words, we’re here to make the process of writing your book viable and engaging. After all, everyone has a story to tell.

In this workshop, we’ll cover the central ideas pertaining to life-writing. That includes:- Defining the memoir
– Discussing the importance of theme
– Making memoirs accessible
– Incorporating personality into the text
– Finding a structure
– Confronting outlines
– Examining components of the memoir (introductions, dialogue, chapter breaks, etc.)

We’ll also have an interactive discussion that invites you to discuss your own story. The only requirement is interest; no need to prepare materials beforehand.

Memoirs allow us to reclaim the past so we can live a better future. Let’s get started together!
