Nasr and Gilbert to Discuss Magical Adventures
Jul 14, 2015 04:17PM
Indianapolis author Iva Nasr is known as a brilliant intuitive with clients from around the world seeking her services. Elizabeth Gilbert, the bestselling author of Eat, Pray, Love fame, concurs, stating that Nasr has “The Bat Phone to the Universe. She has been a guide to me for years.”
On July 28, in celebration of the mid-month launch of Nasr’s book From Rifles to Roses: Memories and Miracles, St. Luke’s United Methodist Church will host Nasr and Gilbert in a special dialogue about the book and their sometimes wild, often magical adventures of the last 15 years. Special music will be provided by the Salaam Band. The event will be from 7 to 8:15 p.m. (doors open at 6:30 p.m.), and a book signing by Nasr will follow.
As a child, Nasr grew up routinely hiding with her family in a Beirut bomb shelter. Now she both helps others to heal from trauma or tragedy and teaches how to live with grace and create miracles as everyday experiences.
“We’re just going to talk to each other the way we always do, with depth and humor,” says Nasr of the upcoming dialogue. “We’ll probably recall some mind-bending journeys. It’s going to be lively and lighthearted. We never know where it’s going to go, but there’s a guarantee of open, honest, stimulating and sometimes raw conversation. And even when we’re just laughing or not trying to solve anything, we expect to have realizations and epiphanies.”
