Chicago Chapter Event: Writing as a Grounding and Restorative Practice

Chicago Chapter Event: Writing as a Grounding and Restorative PracticeTuesday, August 11, 2020, 5‑6:30pm CDT
Location: Zoom link provided with registration – Please save to your calendar!
Restricted to members and their guests
Members and Guests: FREE
Do you long to write, rest, and deeply connect to yourself in these difficult and challenging times?
 
Writing can calm and ground you. Sometimes it’s by using it to directly face, name and express the truth of what’s happening and what you’re feeling, and other times it’s to write a story, a poem, a blog or something that simply gives you a sense of creative joy.
 
This writing experience is a unique opportunity to go deep into the sanctuary of your soul to discover what's written there and what is needed for you and our world at this time.
 
It could be the beginning of your book, a new business or creative idea, or simply a renewed understanding of yourself and a way forward in these strange and unprecedented times.
 
Writer and writing coach Samantha Wallen will lead you through a writing exercise designed to ground and restore you and connect you more deeply to the courageous conversation our collective circumstance is inviting you into.
 
Writers and non-writers alike are welcome. Please bring a pen and notebook/journal.

Chicago Chapter Event: Rediscover Self-Compassion, Reignite Self-Care, and Add Sparkle to Your Joy

Is the new normal wearing you down? Do you need a fresh perspective to recapture the excitement you had when you were “you”?  Join us at the Comfort Club Sampler, a TTN event hosted by its founder, Deborah Wood Holton, where together we’ll explore a few of the themes, practices, and activities that make the Club so engaging.
 
Think of The Comfort Club as an exclusive “oasis” where smart, savvy women “walking their walk” rediscover creative ways to nurture self-compassion, reignite self-care, and add sparkle to their joy. In other words, it’s a place where we renew our commitment to our self-preservation.
 
This is the spirit we cultivate in The Comfort Club. As the poet and activist Audre Lorde once said, “Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare.” ― Audre Lorde  And Martha Beck, in Finding Your Own North Star, puts it this way: “If you want to … make the world a better place …, you have to start by becoming whole yourself.”

Philadelphia Chapter Event: Telling Time – The History of American Timekeeping

Time:

Location: Online via Zoom
Registration Deadline: Friday, August 14, 2020
Members: $5, Guest: $10


The history of timekeeping is incredibly fascinating! This is a rare chance to hear from expert Bob Frishman as he provides a great overview on this topic. Keeping track of time was one of mankind’s earliest developments and it has come a very long way since antiquity. The measurement of time was one of man's earliest obsessions, and the desire for ever greater precision in time-keeping has inspired generations in the fields of mathematics and science. Each advance has produced accompanying works of great craftsmanship that have turned objects of sober function into things of outstanding beauty.

A HISTORY OF TV COMEDY: From Milton Berle to David Letterman

BRIAN ROSE, former professor at Fordham University's College and author of several books on television history, has interviewed over 100 directors, actors and writers in the motion picture and television industry.
