This Was No Coincidence: A Reading & Tea Hour with Mitra Mostofi

This Was No Coincidence: A Reading & Tea Hour with Mitra Mostofi

Nov 15, 7:00pm - Nov 15, 8:30pm

Bookwoman
5501 N Lamar Blvd, Ste A105
Austin, TX  78751 Map

Tea brings us together. Tea allows us to pause and reflect. In our hurried lives, tea can be our companion to stimulate with serenity.

Come join us for tea and a contemplative discussion on the importance of self-awareness. Mitra will read an excerpt from her first book This Was No Coincidence. Books and tea will be available for purchase. Bring paper and pen if you would like to journal!

Mitra Mostofi is the author of This Was No Coincidence. In her self-help memoir, she narrates her journey on what it takes to survive an identity crisis as a white immigrant raised in a non-affluent black neighborhood, not rich enough to be cool enough with her royal like ex-pat family. She’d had many life-altering events, but it wasn't until she reached a quagmire of life-and-death thoughts through her own journey with breast cancer at the age of 27 that she found the courage to set out on a self-awakening path.

Her contemplative practice of self awareness has enriched her creativity rather than reactivity to life events. Her second book, Reflections to Enlightenment, is a collection of adages she collected through her own reflections.The path of mindful awareness has untethered self actualization in helping her reach her highest potential.Her background is in the medical field and plans on utilizing the knowledge of the physical health in bridging mind-body awareness.

She visions building a self awareness community through her website, www.mitraship.com.

A SYMBOL OF PEACE & GLOBAL FRIENDSHIP
The Boulder Dushanbe Teahouse is nestled against the Rocky Mountain Foothills in Boulder Colorado. Sitting alongside Boulder Creek in Central Park, the Teahouse is considered one of Boulder’s most attractive and popular tourist attractions, as well as being a local favorite for great food, tea, and atmosphere.
Completely built by hand without the use of any power tools, the Teahouse was constructed in Dushanbe, Tajikistan as a gift to their sister city, Boulder. It was disassembled, crated up, and sent halfway around the world to be rebuilt in Boulder as a symbol of friendship and cultural exploration. The elaborate and creative teahouse now sits as a reminder to the citizens of Boulder to value cultural diversity, global cooperation, and international friendship.

Houston, TX   Map

In association with the "rebirth of nature", extensive spring cleaning is a national tradition observed by almost every household in Iran. This is also extended to personal attire, and it is customary to buy at least one set of new clothes. On the New Year's Day, families dress in their new clothes and start the twelve-day celebrations by visiting the elders of their family, then the rest of their family and finally their friends. On the thirteenth day, families leave their home and picnic outdoor, as part of the Sizdah Be-dar ceremony.

Sizdah bedar celebrations stem from the ancient Persians' belief that the twelve constellations in the Zodiac controlled the months of the year, and each ruled the earth for a thousand years at the end of which the sky and earth collapsed in chaos. Hence Nowruz lasts twelve days and the thirteenth day represents the time of chaos when families put order aside and avoid the bad luck associated with the number thirteen by going outdoors and having picnics and parties.

At the end of the celebrations on this day, the sabzeh grown for the Haft Seen (which has symbolically collected all sickness and bad luck) is thrown into running water to exorcise the demons (divs) from the household. It is also customary for young single women to tie the leaves of the sabzeh before discarding it, so expressing a wish to be married before the next year's Sizdah Bedar. Another tradition associated with this day is Dorugh-e Sizdah, literally meaning "the lie of the thirteenth", which is the process of lying to someone and making them believe it (similar to April Fools Day).
