Virtual Event: Rebecca Winn

Tuesday, August 4, at 7:00 p.m., available through August 18

 In conversation with Sarah Hepola

Promotional Partners: The Dallas Institute of Humanities and Culture and the Women's Council of the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden

 Award-winning landscape designer Rebecca Winn takes readers through a journey of self-discovery in her book One Hundred Daffodils: Finding Beauty, Grace, and Meaning When Things Fall Apart. After the abrupt end of her 25-year marriage, Winn felt untethered spiritually, physically, and emotionally. She then embarked on a quest for meaning, identity, and purpose through gardening, a study of Jungian psychology, and a deep dive into global spiritual practices. Repeatedly compared to poet Mary Oliver, Winn transformed heartbreak into wholeness through communion with the divine in nature.
