Artist Talk & Book Reading with Dorit Brauer

Free
Author Dorit Brauer

Join the Spiritual Adventure and learn the Art of Everyday Pilgrimage from award winning author and artist Dorit Brauer.

Bring the sacred into your life as Dorit shares the adventures and lessons she learned during her travels, and how this sacredness is expressed in her art and the new oil paintings of her solo-exhibit Unwinding.

See the creation of  the Unwinding Series through the artist’s eye and enjoy the reading from Girls Don’t Ride Motorbikes – A Spiritual Adventure Into Life’s Labyrinth. Then learn how it is all connected.

Dorit Brauer’s spiritual adventure started early with a life-shattering experience at age 15. She began asking questions: Where do we come from? Where do we go? What is our purpose?

From that moment on she knew that she couldn’t live the life that others wanted for her and was catapulted onto a search for meaning.

In her award-winning autobiography Girls Don’t Ride Motorbikes – A Spiritual Adventure Into Life’s Labyrinth she shares her very personal journey and the answers she found, as she embarks on a modern day pilgrimage, a 7,430-mile solo motorcycle adventure across the US. In her book, she recounts poetic life stories spanning her youth on a dairy farm in Germany, a 10-week solo-backpacking trip in Brazil, the turmoil of living in Tel Aviv, to her most recent chronicles in the United States.

One of the spiritual transformation power tools Dorit uses on her cross-country adventure are labyrinths. These ancient walking meditations originated in a time when body and mind were not separate. The sacred circle mends body, mind and spirit back to oneness and connects you to your true self.

Dorit’s intimate stories are woven together intricately to provide insights allowing you to reflect on your own spiritual journey.
