+++November’s First Friday Speaker+++




With Catriona O’Curry

Friday, November 7, 2014 at 6:30 PM
Open to the Public–Suggested Donation $5
Unity of Tucson, 3617 N. Camino Blanco, off River between Swan & Craycroft

Did you know that we create our experiences in the world by how we inhabit our bodies? Join Catriona O’Curry for humor-filled conversation about how we create our own problems with other humans, animals, and even objects. Come prepared for an interactive evening, filled with energizing exercises that will teach us how to be in “Neutral” when relating to our partners, children, co-workers, strangers, and of course, the Universe! As Catriona explains: “Once aware of our emotional attitudes and how we hold them in our energy bodies, learning becomes embodied knowing. When this happens, an expansion takes place in our hearts, enabling us to feel the support we have always had from the ‘web of life’. Nothing is too great for the Life Power to accomplish.”

Catriona (pronounced ‘Catrina’) is an Irish-American with the gift of the gab! Raised in Europe, she was a Family Systems Therapist in Seattle and British Columbia before she moved to Tucson in 2008. She has been facilitating women’s groups and teaching for over 20 years, both privately and at various community colleges. She is a Reiki Master, an Ordained Minister, a Certified Spiritual Healer, and an Energy Medicine Teacher. Her proudest accomplishment was earning a four-year diploma in Energy Healing from the Northwest School of Healing in 2000, based on teachings from an Ancient Mystery School.

+++December’s First Friday Speaker+++



With Dr. David Sadker

Unity of Tucson, 3617 N. Camino Blanco, off River between Swan & Craycroft

Life can set us off our intended course. Turbulence and distractions abound and we may find ourselves a bit lost, aimless, overwhelmed, and even burned out. Such disorientation is an indicator of the gap between who we have become, and who we intended to be, between our role and our soul. We can choose to ignore this tragic gap (many do), but at a potential cost to health, well-being, and ideals once held. It takes courage to come face to face with the tragic gaps in our lives, the wounded places we fear to enter. In our Courage & Renewal® time together, David will help you rediscover your internal GPS. David will share life stories, insights from poets, storytellers, lessons from various wisdom traditions (and some humor as well). Come aboard as we set sail on a courageous voyage to help guide you to the treasure beneath those tragic gaps: your hidden wholeness.

David Sadker is a Courage & Renewal facilitator in Tucson. He is professor emeritus at The American University (Washington DC) and is the author of eight books and more than seventy-five articles.
