Ralph Waldo Emerson

You’re invited to join the Emerson Circle led by Barbara Solowey, to study and explore the literary, spiritual and intellectual legacy of America’s great sage and teacher.  The American Transcendentalists, of whom Emerson was the leading figure, were among the greatest visionary thinkers in our history and their work is still profoundly relevant. His words are both inspirational and fortifying and always address a love of freedom and a deep abiding need for Self-reliance.

For the first meeting, we will begin our studies with Self-reliance, the essence of these Transcendental teachings.

The Emerson Circle will meet on Saturdays
from 1 pm to 3 pm
We will gather once a month
1st Term – October 8, November 5, and December 10
2nd Term – January 14th, February 11th and March 18th
at Shetler Studios
244 West 54th Street
12th floor, NYC

Please bring a printed copy of the essay with you.
