The Call to Passion with Gregg Levoy - Sunday, May 6th - Workshop 1:30 - 4:30 PM/$25

The Call to Passion

Callings are urgings from the deep self that tell you what it will take to make your life literally “come true.” They're signs and signals pointing you toward awakenings, course-corrections and powerful authenticity, as well as toward what inspires passion in your life. 

This presentation (sermon and hands-on workshop) is designed to help you clarify what the signs and signals in your own life—and your life-force—are calling-for from you at this juncture. The goal is to get a snapshot of what wants to emerge in your life, whether in the arenas of creativity, vocation, relationship or spirituality. 

(Please bring writing materials to the workshop.) 

About Gregg Levoy: Gregg Levoy is the author of Callings: Finding and Following An Authentic Life (Random House)—rated among the "Top 20 Career Publications" by the Workforce Information Group—and Vital Signs: The Nature and Nurture of Passion (Penguin). He is the former "behavioral specialist" at USA Today and a regular blogger for Psychology Today.

He has presented at the Smithsonian Institution, Environmental Protection Agency, Microsoft, National Conference on Positive Aging, American Counseling Association, National Career Development Association, and many others, and been a frequent guest of the media, including ABC-TV, CNN, NPR and PBS.

Meditation for the Love of It - facilitated by Gayle Ray - Tuesday, May 8th, 6:30 - 7:30 PM & Wednesday, May 9th, 12:30 - 1:30 PM

Join Gayle Ray as she offers “Meditation for the Love of It” twice a month.   This is the title of a book by Sally Kempton that will be used as a guide.  We’ll discuss ideas from the book and do guided meditations.

Every 2nd Tuesday evening and every 2nd Wednesday afternoon beginning in April.

We will explore different ways of going within and connecting with the Divine Self and living from that place of connection and awareness.    Also we will explore the loving devotional heart and the objective Knower – Awareness – and fusing these two aspects of the Self together.   

This class is for beginners and seasoned meditators.  We will cover posture, mantra, breath, grounding, quick centering techniques, and do a number of guided meditations that lead us further into a state of oneness with the Beloved.

These monthly events are given on a love offering basis and all are welcome. 

For more information, please contact Gayle Ray at: gayleray@bellsouth.net
