From: "HR-Net News Distribution Manager" <>

Originally From: The Society for the Preservation of the Greek Heritage <invite at>

Hello  , You are invited to the following event:

Meteora: A Personal Journey in Physical and Spiritual Heritage

Event to be held at the following time, date, and location:

Tuesday, December 10, 2019 from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM (EST)

Mortara Center for International Studies 36th Street Northwest Washington, DC 20007

With current focus on the living aspects of heritage, SPGH presents the work and experiences of Eva Kosvyra, a young Greek architect who has been living and working in the rocks of Meteora, a unique geographical phenomenon in Thessaly, Greece, whose very name means "suspended in the air" and is the site of a complex of Greek Orthodox monasteries second in importance only to Mt. Athos.

Ms. Kosvyra, a native of the region, begun by studying the construction of the first Meteora hermitages as a graduate student and progressively became one with not only the geographical and architectural, but also the spiritual realities of the site that she calls "so exposed yet also so protected."

SPGH welcomes the opportunity of sharing in the experiences of a person who has born and raised near a treasure of Greek heritage, made a career centered around the monument, and who is becoming herself part of the monument's life and everlasting narrative.

The event will take place at Georgetown University's Mortara Center located at 3600 N St NW.

Dress code: Jacket and tie for gentlemen, business attire for ladies
