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.
