with Mirka Knaster
Monday, April 20, 2009, 7:00 p.m.
Admission is $5

Mirka Knaster Those attending Mirka Knaster's talk entitled "Discovering the Body's Wisdom" will not only learn important concepts but also will have the opportunity to engage in simple yet practical body experiences that help increase awareness and ease.

Mirka believes that the body has much to say that is valuable for our physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. One only has to cultivate a friendlier relationship with the body and tune in to its language to discover its message.

Discovering the Body's Wisdom: book cover The information she will share to promote greater health at any age is contained in her book published by Bantam Books that has the same title as the lecture. It is available at Four-Eyed Frog Books in Gualala and has been translated into Portuguese, Chinese, Dutch, and Russian.

Mirka was born in Europe and has traveled extensively, so she brings a cross-cultural perspective to her twenty-five years as an educator and writer in the alternative or complementary health field. She has a master's degree in Latin American Studies from Stanford and a doctorate in Asian and Comparative Studies.

One can learn more about her background and writings by visiting her website - Her "Sacred Flesh" columns on the body and spirituality are also available on-line at
