Social isolation, climate destruction, political upheaval, systemic racism protests, and the unveiling of a new normal—these are just a handful of the emotional truths of our world today.

This November join author Elizabeth Gilbert and activist Rachel Cargle as they meet and talk about how to inspire creativity in uncertain times. In this intimate and restorative conversation, listen as the two friends discuss why it is more important now than ever to stay creative, connected, and magical in an uncertain world. Elizabeth and Rachel will discuss the creative and spiritual rituals that they rely upon in order to keep themselves sane and productive, and they will share thoughts on how to push back against cultural forces that sometimes seem determined to destroy women’s spirits.

Don’t miss this rare and personal conversation between two of the leading creative, influential, and spiritual leaders of our time.
