What once began as a meditation on mortality after the loss of her husband has led NPR reporter Margot Adler (All Things Considered) into a deep dissection of our cultural fascination with vampires. Reading more than 270 vampire-centric novels as part of her research, Adler found herself exploring issues of power, politics, morality and identity -- coming to a number of fascinating conclusions about our obsession with these undead creatures along the way. Her resulting book, Vampires Are Us: Understanding Our Love Affair with the Immortal Dark Side, is a literate, thought-provoking and imaginative piece of work. Following the evening's conversation, Adler will be available to sign copies of her book, which will be available for purchase at the event. Learn More
Are you one of those people who have been looking for love in all the wrong places? Or perhaps you are someone who has found love, only to find that it fizzles out faster than a lit match in the spring rain? Have you genuinely tried your best to leave behind your pattern of unfulfilling relationships, only to find that you keep on going back to them, again and again?
Dr. Srini Pillay will spend an evening with us to unravel the mysteries of love and help us make wiser more informed choices about the loving relationships in our lives. He will address the following questions with cutting-edge scientific answers:
1.Why do so many people look for love in all the wrong places? What can you do about this?
2.Why you end up doing all the wrong things in love despite your best intentions? How can you change this?
3.Why does loving someone else require that you love yourself first? How can you achieve without the hype of a contemporary tabloid?
4.Why do you repeat your destructive patterns of falling in love? How can you escape these patterns?
5.Why does love become so boring so quickly? What can you do to lead a more sustainable fulfilling romantic life?
Dr. Pillay will also explain in everyday language how our fears complicate finding and forming loving relationships that last. By helping us understand the science of love, Dr. Pillay will help us move through the roadblocks that prevent us from living a satisfying, fulfilling and magical life.
“The secret to living life successfully is to recognize that you can be different from what is happening to you.”—Srinivasan S. Pillay
