The Curative Reading June Series

A 4-Week Online Series

4-Sundays in June at 7:00-8:15 pm

Beginning Sunday, June 5th  


Reading Kate DiCamillo's Because of Winn-Dixie as adults reminds us we do not have to live life as if we are alone. Love and connection are available to us at all times. And sometimes it is our four-footed friends who lead the way for us to find it.

Curative Reading transcends a traditional reading experience by teaching new modalities for restorative and adaptive health all sparked from the pages of great literary fiction and companion reading guides.

Each weekly Curative Reading experience will include:

  • reading up to 30-40 pages of the story 

  • answering curative questions about the story

  • opening weekly curative reading prescription emails with health-tips from experts in the fields of medicine, literature, science, nature and more

  • attending 75-minute guided literary-health conversations online
