Next Brisbane speaker
If you ask Sandra Kafrouni what she does for a living, she’ll tell you the honest truth - every day she’s attempting to do the work of the soul, living true to her values and her heart. Sandra is an artist who teaches painting and works at The School of Life, founded in London in 2008 by renowned writer and psychologist Alain de Botton. Since graduating with a Law and Journalism degree from QUT in Brisbane, Sandra has worked as a Solicitor, tutor/guest lecturer, public speaker, and for BBC Children’s TV in Manchester, UK.A few years ago when work began affecting her health, Sandra had to reassess her path, away from the ‘shoulds’ and expectations, and toward healing and truth, where she finds herself today. Our place of gathering this month is The Third Quarter Gallery, Brisbane’s newest contemporary Art space, opened by a CreativeMornings/Brisbane alumni Emily Devers.Register at 11.00am on Monday 15th to attend.

AUGUST THEME ANNOUNCEMENT: CommunityA community is a reflection of what we crave: belonging.Belonging is the heart of human connection. Our hardwiring is to be social creatures, to need one another. We cannot become our best selves without feeling like we belong to a tribe that sees us, respects us, and lifts us up.A sense of belonging can be fostered in many ways: food, music, volunteering, a cause. You can scan a room and see a diversity of backgrounds, ages, and skill sets—yet the common thread is shared desires and aspirations. It’s magnificently profound how simple this connection is, how deeply we all crave it, and how it changes the trajectory of our lives.The work of community is when a person walks into a room with fear and self-doubt, only to leave with a new narrative and a feeling of possibility and hope. We can give that experience to one another. It’s the work of being human. This month’s global exploration of Community was chosen by our Philadelphia chapter and illustrated by James Olstein. #cmbne #cmcommunity
