Reawaken the Joy, Meaning, and Sacredness of Being Alive

Join Terry Helwig and Sue Monk Kidd in conversation about Terry’s new book,
Shifting Shorelines: Messages from a Wiser Self

Imagine the profound impact of meeting yourself at a younger age. You have changed and the world has changed. You have experienced life, not only through the eyes of your younger self, but also through the lens of time. What wisdom would you impart?

Terry Helwig and Sue Monk Kidd, friends for more than thirty-five years, will explore this intriguing question in a wide-ranging conversation about awakening, solace in nature, the mother/daughter relationship, and the deep abiding friendship of sisters/girlfriends.

Terry’s new book Shifting Shorelines: Messages from a Wiser Self is an ode to nature, the passage of time and the ripening of wisdom. Terry writes, “The tides of time continually shift the shoreline of who we are and, more importantly, who we will become.”

Join us for this virtual hour-long conversation with a brief question-and-answer period afterward..
