This week a brief departure from my usual theatre and food musings.

I would like you to know about a very exciting virtual summit that I am moderating.

All of us have experienced incredible trepidation, fear, and concern in the past year.

Life always throws us challenges, but no one could have anticipated a worldwide health crisis.

How have you reacted during this time? Have you been frustrated and angry by the changes in our world? Has fear of the unknown kept you from living a joyful life?

Please consider attending “Getting Past Fear and Trusting the Path Towards an Evolving World, ” a virtual HEALING SUMMIT on Sunday March 28 from 12 -1:30 PM EDT, presented by the global hospitality brand, Healing Hotels of the World.

I will be joined by two fabulous experts who can speak about the “not bad, but ​different” world we are walking into, and how to reject fear and embrace joy.
