Still & Moving Center Book Club: “Elephant Whisperer”
February 25, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
This book club meets in person at Still & Moving Center and online via GoToMeeting (a free service to participants).
Nourish your soul in community through insightful, uplifting literature. With our collective reading and conversation, we gain greater insight on the human experience.
“We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience.” – Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
Our theme for 2018 is derived from the 2018 Still & Moving Center Almanac: The Art of Living.
Led by Krista Hiser, with support from Malia Helela and Renee Tillotson, this book club is a participatory event. Members help by suggesting reading material and sparking conversation at each meeting with personal reflections and initiatory comments and questions. Participants join with an open mind and heart, aligned with John Wooden’s advice: “Listen if you want to be heard.”
The book club meets once a month, Sunday afternoons at 5 pm. Subject matter can include fiction, essays, biography, poetry, playscripts, scientific or religious or metaphysical texts, and more, dependent on the group’s interest and the alignment with the theme for the year.
Our book for February:
“Elephant Whisperer” by Lawrence Anthony is the true story of a man who heroically undertook the protection of a dangerous, wild herd of elephants in his animal sanctuary. It tells his art of living in harmony with the animal kingdom as well as human bureaucrats and poachers.
