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