EMET is the Hebrew word for truth, but its deeper meaning is the realization of one's

ultimate potential. I see the promise of human potential all around me, which was the inspiration

behind the women's salons you'll find below. The only way for us to truly open our hearts

and minds is to start learning about each other in ways that encourage open dialog,

curiosity and understanding. We can only start where we are to play a part in creating

a more peaceful world, so I'm starting by bringing women together to learn and share wisdom.

Join us to experience the power of flowers! Jen will break down a beautiful compote arrangement using local, eco-friendly flowers and show you the ropes of sustainable floral design. Afterward, get ready for a dollop of holiday magic as she demonstrates how to create a tablescape from everyday items.

Plus, you'll experiment and create your own masterpiece too! (Hey, we don't want you to leave empty handed.) No need to worry about tools – we've got everything covered.

Finally, throughout the afternoon, I will guide us through a few grounding meditations that will connect us to the natural world, adding a touch of serenity to our floral afternoon.

Healthy lunch, flower arrangement demo, supplies to make your own masterpiece, tools, meditation and joy. Private address provided upon registration.

The Critics Daughter: A Memoir

I don't know anyone who wasn't impacted by their parent's opinions, worldview or criticism. Honestly, for many years, so much of my own identity was wrapped up in what my parents thought — I was confused about where they ended and I began. Who was I, really?

As the Washington Post said, "The Critic’s Daughter is about the complex love between a parent and a child. To every child, every parent is, at some point, a titan — their first god, as Pricilla's famous father was to her. Gillman explores tales of becoming, of breaking free, of learning to ​“direct” one’s own life."

HEARTBREAK: A scientific and personal journey

"Being heartbroken is one of the hidden landmines of human existence. That's because feeling alone and rejected literally changes our cells. And our immune systems. We sleep terribly. Our digestion changes. Pain feels more painful. Heartbreak can open us humans up to become more empathetic and more open to new experiences. I wanted that. So I studied how to get there and here's what I learned." — Florence Williams
