馃憠 Arouna Lipschitz: Living love instead of dreaming about it!聽

Arouna Lipschitz, a woman of letters, writer, philosopher, spiritual teacher, and director, wears many hats but follows one single guiding principle: love!聽

Join an exceptional conversation with this inspiring woman. This event will be preceded by a test screening of her film La Nostalgie de l鈥橝illeurs, a film without filming made from over 700 extracts of mythical or forgotten films, archival images, artworks, and post-production. An homage to the genius of filmmakers as much as to the magic of actors, La Nostalgie de l鈥橝illeurs is a journey into the heart of cinema as well as a modern metaphysical tale in which everyone can find themselves.聽

Arouna Lipschitz has just published Aimer 莽a s鈥檃pprend ! 7 chemins de d茅veloppement relationnel, a book she will be delighted to sign for you after this meeting.聽
