Twelve Moments: Resilience
One Year Anniversary: Healing in Community After Hurricane Harvey

For the month of September, the Rothko Chapel presents a contemplative practice and invitation to share stories one year after Hurricane Harvey. Dr. Alejandro Chaoul of Mind Body Spirit Institute at the Jung Center will lead participants in a meditation, and Marcela Brave and Leslie Gauna of Houston Playback Theatre will lead participants in reflective story telling. Come share your story with others who were impacted by the storm. 

About the presenters:
Dr. Alejandro Chaoul, the founding director of The Jung Center's Mind Body Spirit Institute (MBSI), holds a doctoral degree in religious studies from Rice University. He is a faculty member in the Integrative Medicine Program at MD Anderson Cancer Center, where, since 1999, he has used mind, body, and spirit techniques to facilitate healing in cancer patients and their families and reduce stress and promote work-life balance among support staff. Dr. Chaoul is also on the Board and is a meditation and Tibetan yoga teacher of the Ligmincha Texas Institute for the Tibetan Meditative and Healing Arts as well as an advisor for the Rothko Chapel. 

About the series:
Since September 2005, on the first Wednesday of each month at 12pm, the Rothko Chapel hosts a contemplative practice focusing on different spiritual or faith traditions featuring teachers and religious leaders from throughout the greater Houston community.
