About the event

Love,  Beauty and Desire are all attributes of the Goddess Aphrodite, but so  too is the Femme Fatale - perhaps the most feared personification of  femininity throughout history.

Colette has chosen the world-famous Dutch Exotic Dancer and Spy, Mata Hari,  as an example of a historical woman who embodies all the  characteristics mentioned above, but who also has associations with  Hotel American where the talk/discussion will be held. Mata’s wedding  reception took place in their beautiful Art Deco salon, and her wedding  night was also spent in the hotel.

The  purpose of WeTalk is to discuss a topic, freely ask questions, express  thoughts, insights and doubts while respecting the differences of other  attendees.  No philosophical education is necessary. We only ask that  you listen with respect while remaining open to what others have to say.

Colette  Kavanagh has a Ph.D. in Cultural Psychology and works internationally.  Her special interest is in the diverse beliefs and values of cultures  and how they manifest in today’s changing world. This includes women’s  spirituality. Her role as facilitator is not to lecture, but to  encourage open discussion within the group.

Organised by AIW (Amsterdam International Women’s  Network)

Venue:  Mata’s Hideaway"  Hotel American.  Leidseplain 97,  Amsterdam.

Day:     15th May, 2022.

Time:    3pm – 5pm
