Love reading? So do we!
Join Artist Reads @CharlotteStreet monthly book club. Each month we have invited an artist to recommend a book that has inspired them, brought them joy or has been pivotal in some way. You will have one month to read the book. Artists will share their relationship and interpretation of the book and facilitate the monthly discussions which will be hosted virtually. As we’re unable to meet in person feel free to enjoy your own refreshments as we zoom into your living room. Readers who register will be provided a zoom link.
Let’s read with Nika Cotton, Wednesday, March 17, 2021, 6:00 – 7:00 p.m.
This month Nika has chosen Bill Plotkin’s Nature and The Human Soul: Cultivating Wholeness and Community in a Fragmented World for us to discuss. Here are questions she would like us to think about as we are reading:
1.Which of the Eight Eco-Soulcentric Stages of Human Development resonate most with you in the present?
2. In what ways do you embody the developmental task of that stage?
3. Where can you see the gifts of that stage playing out in your tasks?
Want to purchase the book? Support our local bookstore Bliss Books & Wine, where you can find several copies of Nature and the Human Soul
