Blue Bicycle Books Charleston Author Series Luncheon with Heather Lyn Mann and her true story of 6 years on the ocean!
Join us Saturday, December 3 at noon for Blue Bicycle Books Charleston Author Series luncheon at High Cotton, with Heather Lyn Mann discussing her new book, a true story of a 6-year sailing adventure "Ocean of Insight. A Sailors Voyage from Despair to Hope."

Event tickets are just $36 for a delicious three-course luncheon while Heather Lyn Mann discuss her sailing odyssey, or $55 for the luncheon and a signed, trade paperback copy of Heather's book, "Ocean of Insight." $5 from each ticket sale will benefit, a global climate change movement.

Heather Lyn Mann was a battle-weary environmental advocate in Madison, Wisconsin, struggling over what to do about climate change when she and her husband decided to explore the Atlantic on a small sloop.

This memoir of six years living afloat is a chronological unfolding of disasters and discoveries--life-threatening storms, the boredom of isolation, societies on the brink of extinction, sinking ships, colorful Caribbean characters, near collisions, a pirate scare, and more.

Throughout, the ocean becomes Mann's teacher, transforming her with uncompromising lessons on how to harmonize with natural order, the exact moments and ways to let in fearlessness, resilience, happiness, impermanence, balance, compassion, skillful action, and beginner's mind.

Spiritual ecologist Heather Lyn Mann is a practitioner of Buddhism, sailing, and mindful advocacy. Mann founded and led the not-for-profit Center for Resilient Cities  an organization mobilizing inner-city residents to restore natural beauty and function in damaged neighborhood landscapes.

She also co-edits "Touching the Earth: A Newsletter of Earth Holding Actions in the Plum Village Tradition." In 2007, together with her husband and cat, Mann set sail on a 15,000-nautical-mile, six-year ocean voyage.

Her suspenseful, sometimes hilarious, and always heart-warming journey of body and mind, shaped by ancient Buddhist teachings, entertains as it charts reality's depths and danger zones so arm-chair adventurers, spiritual seekers, and the climate-concerned can navigate tumultuous waters and arrive together on the shore of planetary well-being.

Tickets to meet Heather Lyn Mann are $36 for a delicious three-course luncheon, or $55 for lunch and a signed, trade paperback copy of Heather's "Ocean of Insight."

Doors open at 11:30 AM and lunch is served promptly at noon. Limited seating provides an intimate experience with the author. There is a cash bar for your enjoyment.

High Cotton is located at 199 East Bay Street, where the luncheon and discussion will take place. Parking is available at the Cumberland Street Garage, other municipal lots or at meters on the street.
