Due to the COVID lockdown and uncertainty as to when we will be able to gather again, we have postponed Elvia Collado’s presentation: ‘The Making of an Icon: the creation, the meditation and the gift they are for us in the challenges of today’s world.’

The talk has been rescheduled for Friday, December 3, at 1:30 pm. However, we plan to have some of Elvia’s artwork available for sale in the bookshop in time for Christmas.

Thank you for your support of Fireside Chats.

We hope we will be able to proceed with the scheduled  November 5th presentation by Dr. Patricia Moroney Jungian Analyst, Psychotherapist speaking to the challenges modern families face with the prevalence of social media.

We will continue to monitor what Fireside Chats we can hold and keep you posted.
