This class will be presented by Mark Leary, Garonzik Family Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience, Duke University and facilitated by Brian J. Cowley, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology, Park University. To register or for more information, contact Deacon Jerry Grabher at email@example.com or 816.590.6205.
Heartfulness: Transformation in Christ
Mondays, January 14–March 4

Heartfulness: Transformation in Christ condenses the accumulated wisdom of Fr. Thomas Keating’s many years of teaching and practice into nine essential areas for study, reflection and spiritual growth for our time. The interviewer, Betty Sue Flowers, draws out of Fr. Thomas the importance of silence and contemplative practice as a means of opening the mind and heart and one’s whole being to God, or the Ultimate Reality.

Women’s Bible Study
Luke for Everyone
12:30–1:30 p.m. • Common Room
Women’s Bible Study meets for an hour or so on Tuesdays at 12:30 p.m. in the Common Room. At the beginning of each session, members of the group read a passage from the current selected book or study guide and then see where the spirit takes them. Discussions are lively, thought-provoking, and often irreverent. All are welcome. If you have the inclination, but not the book—come anyway and someone will share!
The group is now using Luke for Everyone by the Right Reverend N. T. Wright, Bishop of Durham (Church of England) as the inspiration for its weekly discussion. The book is available in the Cathedral Bookstore.
6–8 p.m. • Founders’ Hall
