Special Inauguration Day Event: Finding Trust in a Changing World

In a rapidly changing world dominated by divisions, illusions and deceptions, it is more important than ever to increase the quality of trust so we can continue to grow. Join us for this special event with Sister Jenna on inauguration day as we learn how to use our innate spiritual powers to increase self confidence and trust in ourelves, God, and others.

Sister Jenna is a radio and TV personality, renowned speaker and founder and director of the Meditation Museums in Silver Spring, Maryland and McLean, Virginia. Selected by Empower a Billion Women 2020 as one of 100 Most Influential Leaders of 2015 and served as a principal partner with the Oprah Winfrey Network and Values Partnerships on the Belief Team, a community of individuals from diverse spiritual, cultural and faith backgrounds, and as an influential connector, she coordinated bringing on-board organizations and thought leaders to engage in this global dialogue on Belief.

Sister Jenna’s voice of influence is particularly needed in the wake of tragedy and increasing violence in our world. Friday, January 20th, 6:30 PM – 8:00 PM. In Maryland, at the Meditation Museum, 9525 Georgia Avenue, Suite 101, Silver Spring, MD.

Free Event – Contributions Appreciated. RSVP at http://www.MeditationMuseum.org/meditation-events.

FREE Post-Truth Comedy Game Show @ The Fridge

WHAT
It’s official people: we live in the post-truth era. Look it up, I’ll wait. So how do you determine what’s real and what isn’t? How do you sift through the information overload? Well, here’s a good place to start. We’ve got six highly knowledgeable and funny people. Each of them is going to inform you a little bit on ten different topics. You, the audience, decide what’s reality and what’s horse bologna. If you guess correctly, they have to face the consequences. And you can bet the stakes will be high.

Hosted by Pete Musto (Win a chance to shave off his glorious beard!)

Featuring the combined brain power of:
Sam Levine
Kasha Patel
Alli Hanley
Max Wolfson
Shelley Kim BoSlice

AND IT’S FREE!!!!!!!!!!
