Amaris Salon is a gathering of people around the table for mutual encouragement, enrichment, and inspiration to pursue a life worth living. The goal of Amaris Salon is to offer a hospitable, healing presence as well as a place for individuals from different walks of life to feel valued, safe and free to engage in honest and heartfelt conversation about what is and how to live a life worth living.

The gathering will reflect upon some basic dimensions of life, and participants will be encouraged to engage in honest and heartfelt conversation find their own answer to what makes for a life worth living.

This week we will watch ''Anatomia del Miracolo', a documentary film based on three female characters living in Naples, each connected to the Virgin in their own way but who never meet -- Giusy, a girl in a wheelchair who had no right to a miracle; an atheist, free-spirited, and an anthropologist specializing in the worship of the Virgin Mary. Fabiana, a transsexual at the head of a troupe faithful supporters of the Virgin in a popular district of the city center. And Sue, a Korean pianist in search of a new direction for her life, teaching music to children in difficulty in a city far removed from her original culture. Each with their intimate wounds and each searching for a "miracle".

Amaris Salon will host a follow-up gathering in two weeks to discuss and explore the question of miracle.
