Russie: Gourmets, Exiles, and Philosophers

March 14, 2017 at Alliance Française de Chicago in Chicago.

tracking.php?code=cpS4vNvax2VSWxprlZ9Bg3

Part of our Festival de la Francophonie 2017

Russia’s affinity for all things French dates back to the 18th century.

Peter the Great employed French architects, engineers and artists to build St. Petersburg, while Catherine the Great entered into correspondence with the greatest French thinkers of her day, including Voltaire and Diderot.

Russian aristocracy turned to France as the center of high culture and progress; travel to France became a form of cultural and intellectual apprenticeship for Russian nobility.

French became the lingua franca of the Russian court and nobility under Catherine the Great, preferred to Russian in everyday use.

Despite the upheavals of the French Revolution and the Napoleonic Wars, France remained a major cultural point of reference for Russia throughout the 19th century – the main source of fashion, cuisine, and culture enjoyed by St. Petersburg high society.

It was therefore no surprise that Paris proved the most popular destination for aristocratic émigrés and intellectuals after the Bolsheviks came to power, becoming home to such famous Russian exiles as V. Nabokov.

Join us for a talk with Irina Ruvinsky, a Professor of Philosophy and Literature at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

Talk followed by aspic sampling and vodka cocktail.

Irina received her PhD in Philosophy from the University of Chicago and she studied French Literature at Sorbonne IV and at the École Normale Supérieure in Paris. She teaches French and Russian literature as well German philosophy at several other institutions, including the UIC and the Graham School at the University of Chicago.

Emotional Mindfulness Meditation Group

March 30, 2017 at World Tree Healing in Chicago.

tracking.php?code=iAzq9JrBODeK5Qjat2q4to

This is a weekly group that meets on Thursdays. The intention of the group is to allow people to get to know their emotions, release old pain and resentments, get in touch with their intuition, release unwanted patterns, and utilize the power of their emotional resources.

Each meeting will start with a check-in, followed by a guided body-awareness and emotional-body-awareness meditation. Elmo is a firm believer in the collective unconscious, and unspoken reasons that certain people step into the same room at the same time. The intentions will depend on what has been brought up during check-in. Sometimes the focus will be a general emotional mindfulness intention. Sometimes it will be more focused, such as on gratitude, or Love, or grief. The meeting will end with another check-in and grounding, centering, and shielding to prepare us to walk out the door feeling safe.

Payment is donation-based, and no one will be turned away for lack of funds. This is a safe space for all gender, romantic, sexual, and personal identities and expressions.

Elmo is currently in the Counseling Psychology Master’s program at The Chicago School of Professional Psychology. She specializes in emotional wellness, which plays a significant role in our lives, including our ability to achieve goals, give and receive love, career success, creativity, community work, and has a huge physiological effect on our bodies.

In 1970, Raquel Welch and her Hollywood cohorts took over the Cypriot village of Karmi, a time recounted with affection in this documentary that alternates between the past and the present with behind-the-scenes film footage and present-day reenactments and interviews. The production of the George Cosmatos film THE BELOVED, a violent story of adultery, dazzled the locals with movie-world glamour and daily glimpses of the gorgeous and demanding star, as well as providing a host of residents with an enduring claim to fame through work as extras. Director Patsalides tempers the nostalgia of surviving participants for those heady days with the political reality that Karmi is now an occupied village on the Turkish side of the Cyprus partition. In English and Greek with English subtitles. Courtesy of Walking Around the World.
