Storytellers: Devotion

Storytellers is a riff on story slams. While eliminating the competitive aspect, we invite to each Storytellers event three individuals to tell a brief story on a specific topic.This month, the topic is "Devotion."  Entry to the event is $15 per person to cover the cost of the event and it includes light bites and (non-alcoholic) beverages. The storytellers featured this month are Kay Sidahmed and Cheri Lemieux Spiegel. The third storyteller will be announced soon. Kay Sidahmed:Kay left Europe and her career in science 13 years ago, when she followed the call of love across the pond. Enjoying life as an Alexandria resident ever since, she is the founder, former director and musicianship teacher of The Alexandria Kinderchoir. As a devoted yogini she completed a 200-hour teacher training and teaches at Ease Yoga & Cafe.

Singing is her second nature and she enjoys the community and fellowship of the choir at Westminster Presbyterian Church.Kay will tell the story of how the—somewhat terrifying—decision to commit to homeschooling her children helped her discover herself and healed her family.Cheri Lemieux Spiegel:Cheri is Professor of English at Northern Virginia Community College. Outside of academia she is an avid board gamer, collector of vinyl, and burgeoning baker. She has long prided herself on being devoted to her college, her field, her research, and her students. In this meditation, she weaves a historical look at the term "devotion" into collection of her own experiences to ask: when did devotion become self-sacrifice? and how can we cultivate devotion to ourselves? Ilkim Boyle: Ilkim was born and raised in Ankara, Turkey.
As a young adult, she traveled quite a bit and then moved to the Washington, DC area where she has lived for the last 18 years. Ilkim will tell the story of how her devotion to a rescue animal saved her and made her dreams come true.
