By Karon Winzenz

On Wednesday August 3, starting at 12:30 pm, Karon will host and lead the discussion of The Possibility of Everything by Hope Edelman, a memoir describing her family’s search to heal her three-year-old daughter whose curiously disruptive imaginary friend, Dodo, becomes increasingly dangerous and disruptive. After all else fails, Edelman and her husband take her to Maya healers in Belize, hoping that a shaman might help them. Their experience transforms Edelman from a person who believes only in the visible and the “proven” to someone open to the idea of larger, unseen spiritual forces. Ultimately the journey is about the health of a troubled family and the things that can destroy and heal us all.
