Wholeness of Spirit
The River Falls Public Library presents an exhibit and programs on a wider view of our connection to our fellow man. “WHOLENESS, UBUNTU: Through the Lens of Africa” shows, through photographs and writings, how the concept of Ubuntu is essential to African’s spiritual and social life.
Beautiful images show the three tenets of Ubuntu – human, environmental, and spiritual. These and the accompanying writings suggest how we too, as Americans, are inextricably bound to other people – I am what I am because of who we all are.
Meet the exhibit’s creators photojournalists Thomas Lindfors and Michele Hermansen at a public gallery reception from 5-7 p.m. Thursday, October 9. Refreshments will be served.
Plan to stay for a presentation by Hermansen, The Drive to Do Balanced with the Benefits of Being. Her talk is intended to promote thought and discourse on the philosophy of sufficiency, the inherent potential in rural communities of east Africa, sustainable development approaches, and the cultural propensity of Americans to seek and implement solutions to problems.
Hermansen’s talk begins at 7 p.m. in the library’s lower level community room. For more information call Katie at 715 426-3496 or email at
