You won't know for sure until you have read this book." Most of us spend our lives steering ourselves toward the best of all possible futures, only to find that tomorrow rarely turns out as we had presumed. Why? As Harvard psychologist Daniel Gilbert explains, when people try to imagine what the future will hold, they make some basic and consistent mistakes. Just as memory plays tricks on us when we try to look backward in time, so does imagination play tricks when we try to look forward. "In a book that is as deep as it is delightful, Daniel Gilbert reveals the powerful and often surprising connections between our experience of happiness and how we think about the future. I confidently predict that your future will be happier if you read this path breaking volume." "A lucid, charmingly written argument for why our expectations don't pan out" This is a brilliant book, a useful book, and a book that could quite possibly change the way you look at just about everything." "If you stumble on this book, you're guaranteed many doses of joy." "This book is brilliant. It's a book that will be talked about by people everywhere. Trust me on that." Date: Tuesday October 9th at 6:30pm R.S.V.P: Lindsay (firstname.lastname@example.org or ext 236) Cost: Complimentary Are Guests Welcome? Yes Contemporary Dance Performance and Discussion Claudia Moore, performer, choreographer and artistic director of MOonhORsE dance theatre, is one of Canada's most celebrated contemporary dancers. She will perform a short solo by Canadian dance icon, Tedd Robinson, and speak about the effects of physical expression on our health and wellbeing in all aspects of our lives. Claudia will then engage in an open discussion with Verity Members on how dance impacts all aspects of our lives- physical, emotional, spiritual and creative. Trained classically at the National Ballet School, Claudia emerged as one of Canada's foremost contemporary creators and performers. She was muse to Robert Desrosiers and also performed with Toronto Dance Theatre and Les Ballets Blaska in France. Her most recent work, EVER THUS, was presented at the Young Centre for the Performing Arts. "Now in my fifties, Dance continues to be my passion and my ally- a source of challenge, strength and great pleasure. Communicating through Dance, with my bones, muscles and skin, connects me to others, stirring our mutual curiosity, mystery and delight in the human experience."
