LIGHT Events Winter/Spring 2019

LIGHT is pleased to announce that we will be partnering with McNally Robinson Booksellers as part of their Community Classroom program. The following events/classes will be held in the Winter/Spring of 2019:

“Time Marches On . . . Or Does It?”
Dr. Manuel Matas

The word “time” has an Indo-European root which means “to divide.” We divide time and time divides us. We divide time into hours, minutes, and seconds. Time divides us against each other, against Nature, and against our true selves. Einstein said the distinction between past, present, and future is an illusion. Modern physics sees time as non-linear. Spiritual teachers emphasize the importance of the present moment. What is the true nature of time?

Dr. Manuel Matas is the author of The Borders of the Normal: A Clinical Psychiatrist De-Stigmatizes Paranormal Phenomena. He obtained his medical degree for the University of Manitoba and his Diploma in Psychiatry from McGill. He has forty years of experience working in the mental health field. He has had many experiences which could be call anomalous or paranormal. He wishes to lift the veil of secrecy which surrounds these phenomena..

“Contemporary Western Spiritual Teachers” (3 classes)

As humanity collectively faces unprecedented challenges in these transformative times, a number of gifted Western spiritual teachers have emerged to offer a universal teaching of spiritual awakening and evolution appropriate for the contemporary world. The three-part class will explore the teachings of Eckhart Tolle (author of The Power of Now), the nondual direct path of awakening set forth by Jeff Foster (author of The Wonder of Being and The Deepest Acceptance) and the Fourth Way teachings of G.I. Gurdjieff (originator of the ‘enneagram’). Each class will feature a film presentation, supplementary handouts, experiential exercises and practices, and the opportunity for discussion and reflection.

Friday March 22, 2019, Friday April 26, 2019 and Friday May 24, 2019 2 – 4 pm
