Evening Introductory Lecture: Your Soul’s Compass: What is Spiritual Guidance?  Friday January 16, in the Great Room 7:30 – 9 pm & booksigning.  $22.  Why am I here?  What does a life worth living look like? What is the higher intelligence trying to express through me?  In this time of global change and uncertainty, of spiritual indirection, Americans are asking these age-old questions with renewed curiosity.  There’s a thirst for meaning and purpose—a dawning realization that happiness isn’t a commodity that can be bought with a gold card.  Fulfillment and joy arise naturally from creative and compassionate action-- from the understanding that all life is interconnected and guided by a higher intelligence.  Our personal choices make a difference, and when they are spiritually inspired even the smallest action serves a larger whole.  Special pricing for attending Friday Introduction ($22).  Saturday Workshop: $122.  Fri. & Sat. Both: Special price $99.  To register call The Energy Extension, Inc. 928-284-3703, Fax: 928 284 3704,  Email: register@emfworldwide.com.  Visit www.EMFWorldwide.com.

Sacred texts ranging from the Torah to the New Testament, the Tao Te Ching to the Buddhist scriptures, the Vedantas to the Koran, speak of making life-enhancing choices where a force greater than the individual flows through us and informs our thoughts and actions. In this introductory evening based on the book Your Soul’s Compass: What is Spiritual Guidance? www.hayhouse.com/details.php?id=3242&ref=JBWB  we’ll focus on the three classic aspects of living such a spiritually guided life: (1) alignment: maintaining a direct and personal connection to the Source of our Being; (2) discernment: distinguishing the movement of Spirit in our lives from our own wants, fears and social conditioning; and (3) action: making our best, most inspired contribution to the evolution of life.

About Dr. Joan Borysenko, Ph.D.

How did a Harvard trained medical scientist become a mystic?  In reality, it was the other way around.  At the age of 10, Joan experienced 6 months of an alternate reality, what modern psychiatry would label psychosis and obsessive compulsive disorder.  One day, while praying fervently for help, all fear and confusion parted to reveal a luminous reality of exquisite love, surpassing peace, and practical wisdom that guided her to an almost instantaneous recovery.  Her journey to hell and back birthed a lifelong fascination with healing, the roots of consciousness, and the realm of Spirit. Weaving together biology, psychology, and spirituality in a credible, accessible way is her soul's purpose.

Joan's doctorate is from the Harvard Medical School where she subsequently completed postdoctoral fellowships in cancer cell biology, psychoneuroimmunology, and behavioral medicine.  In 1987, her New Times bestseller, Minding the Body, Mending the Mind (revised in 2007 for it's 20 year anniversary edition) described the program of mental and physical healing that she and her colleagues pioneered at a leading Boston hospital.  She has authored or co-authored a dozen other books about healing, inner peace, and the spiritual journey, along with numerous audio programs and guided meditation CD's.  Joan is also a licensed psychologist, a journalist, a renowned inspirational speaker, and a television personality.

Her lifelong interest in mysticism and the world's religions culminated in co-founding The Claritas (Latin for clarity and illumination) Institute for Interspiritual Inquiry with her husband, organizational psychologist Gordon Dveirin, Ed.D.  The Institute has programs to train spiritual mentors, offers spiritual guidance to individuals and corporations, and hosts seminars and retreats.  Joan and Gordon's new book, Your Soul's Compass: What is Spiritual Guidance? reveals how we can co-operate with the living field of possibilities to align with the emerging good in any situation.
