Only we can make our community and our relationships stronger, more integrated and more supportive!
And we have just the person to help us: Meg Cox!
Finding ways to keep us connected as a community and in our relationships to those we love is more important than ever in a world of tweets and constant electronic noise. Our neighbor Meg Cox is a former reporter for the Wall Street Journal and a national thought leader who will inspire us with what she knows about creating unforgettable rituals that deepen our connections and enrich our lives and our communities. The author of four books on tradition and celebration, she will help us, as women of all ethnicities, religions and ages, develop new rituals for breaking bread together at the Potluck Society. She will also teach us how to build rituals, ceremonies, and celebrations for our families and friends.
Meg will share examples from women all over the country, as well as from her own life, including those that commemorate important life events and tender moments. As a mother, stepmother and widow, Meg has applied what she’s learned to her own life in interesting and creative ways, just as one example, making a quilt of shirts to memorialize a beloved husband. She’ll also talk about designing rituals around friendship, healing and problem solving. What’s missing from your life? There’s a ritual for that, and Meg will show you how to find it. In a time of challenge and numbing chatter, let’s come together for something healing and inspiring.
This event will take place on Sunday, September 17 at 2:00 PM. We will meet at the Bramwell House behind the YWCA, located at 59 Paul Robeson Place in Princeton, NJ 08540. On Sundays, you may park in the lot behind the YWCA. This will be a pot luck gathering, so please bring a dish or beverage of your choice to share, or make a $10 donation to the food kitty. We will be sure to have a halal dish at our table. We hope you’ll be part of our communal ritual.
