Join us for a celebration of life in community with Sheikha Maryam Kabeer Faye, a world-renowned spiritual teacher.
ABOUT THIS EVENT
This event is to celebrate the season of new life — spring! What a time of joy after days of cold and hibernation. Let's come together and help our community grow as we meet, greet, and eat. We'll reflect on the meaning of the symbol of the tree of life, and we'll be exhibiting absolutely beautiful one-of-a-kind handmade Kashmiri tapestries of the tree of life symbol. These are art pieces that honour the craftsmanship of Kashmiri artisans who uphold an ages-old tradition. Your purchase of a tapestry will help us sustain the programming and community space of the Lotus, a project that is a tree of life for the community here in Beacon Hill, Ottawa.
