Chicago Chapter Event: Boundaries: Live Your Life as a “Hell Yes” by Learning How to Say No!

Chicago Chapter Event: Boundaries: Live Your Life as a “Hell Yes” by Learning How to Say No!Thursday, October 14, 2021, 5:30‑7pm CDT
Location: Zoom link provided with registration – Please save to your calendar!
Members: FREE, Guest: $5

Can you think of a person or situation that is consistently a source of frustration, that leaves you feeling unfulfilled and powerless? That is likely an issue with boundaries. Your boundaries.

Without boundaries, people may take advantage of you because you haven’t set limits about how you expect to be treated.  Boundaries help put the opportunity of relief and freedom squarely in your control.

Personal boundaries are the limits and rules we set for ourselves within relationships. A person with healthy boundaries are able to say “no” to others when they want to, but they are also comfortable opening themselves up to intimacy and close relationships.

In our workshop, we will:

  • Define boundaries, what they are and what they aren’t
  • Explore ways to set, communicate, and hold your boundaries
  • Identify obstacles to setting up boundaries
  • Reflect on where it’s best for you to begin to incorporate boundaries for yourself

Philadelphia Chapter Event: Restoring Philadelphia’s City Hall- An Insider's LookMonday, October 18, 2021, 2‑3:30pm EDT
Location: Virtual Event via Zoom
Registration Deadline: Sunday, October 17, 2021
All Attendees: $5





Philadelphia’s City Hall, topped by the iconic statue of William Penn looking down at his “holy experiment,” is one of the city’s most familiar sights. It is reported that there are over 250 sculptures and bas-reliefs that were also modeled by Alexander Milne Calder, the grandfather of Alexander (Sandy) Calder, who worked out of a south basement studio space in City Hall. Calder modeled the sculptures in plaster to represent the people and animals of the world, elements, human goals and endeavors, as well as additional themes related to the city of Philadelphia; business, industry and the arts. Our expert presenter, Nan R. Gutterman, has personally inspected (along with a structural engineer and stone conservator) all the pieces, over a period of the nearly 12 years for the restoration and conservation.

You won’t want to miss what promises to be an insider’s look at the history of this beloved building and the stories behind the patriarch of one of the city’s most famous artistic families.

Mostly women, black and British, they tell the stories of their families, friends and lovers, across the country and through the years.” (Goodreads Review.) Evaristo won the Booker Prize for this novel in 2019, making her the first black woman and the first black British person to win it.

Conversations on Loss & Resilience - Three Online Sessions

Conversations on Loss & Resilience - Three Online SessionsWednesday, October 27, 2021, 4:30‑6:30pm EDT
Location: Online
Restricted to members only
Members: FREE
Wait, wait, we know what you’re thinking! You’ve had enough! No more doom and gloom. We get it!
 
That’s why we are focusing these conversations on how loss shapes our experience, and how it teaches us what matters, how can we turn wounds into wisdom and pain into purpose. Instead of sadness, we are aiming for joy. 
 
In this three-part conversation series, we’ll look at all kinds of losses, especially those that often go unacknowledged like relationships, identity, safety, mobility, or jobs, and talk about lighter, happier ways to move forward.  
 
We’ll share nourishing insights, information and resources, all with humor and grace.

Philadelphia Chapter Event: National Gallery of Art in DC- Behind the Camera

Philadelphia Chapter Event:  National Gallery of Art in DC- Behind the CameraThursday, November 18, 2021, 11am‑4:30pm EST
Location: National Gallery of Art, Washington DC
Registration Deadline: Thursday, November 11, 2021
All Attendees: $5





Join us for a trip to the National Gallery of Art to enjoy, among other exhibits, its new special exhibition Behind the Camera. Women actively participated in the development of photography soon after its inception in the 19th century. Yet it was in the 1920s, after the seismic disruptions of World War I, that women entered the field of photography in force. Aided by advances in technology and mass communications, along with growing access to training and acceptance of their presence in the workplace, women around the world made an indelible mark on the growth and diversification of the medium. They brought innovation to a range of photographic disciplines, from avant-garde experimentation and commercial studio practice to social documentary, photojournalism, ethnography, and the recording of sports, dance, and fashion.
