A Spiritual Revolution: The Quest To Experience God
LOCATION: New Canaan Library, 151 Main St., New Canaan, Connecticut, USA
A lecture by Giulia Nesi, CSB
Have you ever asked yourself, Is there more to life than what I am experiencing? How do I find a deeper, lasting, and more satisfying peace or happiness that might fill the emptiness inside?
A free talk and discussion, "A Spiritual Revolution: The Quest to Experience God," explores the search for individual meaning in relation to an expansive source of goodness: God. Speaker Giulia Nesi has spent years studying the subject of life and identity for herself and others, first as a psychotherapist and subsequently through cultivating an understanding of spirituality as a practitioner of Christian Science healing.
