Eros At Your Table
Julie Sgarzi, Ph.D.
Friday, 8:00 pm, November 4th, 2005
Welcome Eros, god of relationship and life-spirit, into your home as an invisible yet inspiring guest. Through this evening together, we will: expand an understanding of the "erotic" to include the fully integrated awakening of all the senses infused with the intentional cultivation of hospitality, relationship, and beauty. We will explore the evolving myth of Philemon and Baucis as a grounding thread for the evening, including the alchemy of entertaining and how cooking, imagination, generosity, and ambience combine to transform ordinary moments into rich, sensuous opportunities to feast with the gods, when inspired by the presence of Eros and Psyche.
