Workshop: "Meditation as a Path of Spiritual Awakening" with Dr. James Finley


The Center for Religion & Spirituality invite you to this public workshop with sprituality scholar and author James Finley, Ph.D.

The Christian mystics teach us that meditation lays bare our true nature and in doing so lays bare God’s nature given to us as our own true nature. In our time together Jim Finley will offer step by step practical guidelines in meditation practice that draws us into this deep, transformative experience of God’s presence in our lives. Time will be given for discussion of the themes presented.
