+++October’s First Friday Speaker+++



With David Wilkinson, PhD.

Friday, October 3, 2014 at 6:30 PM
Open to the Public–Suggested Donation $5
Unity of Tucson, 3617 N. Camino Blanco,  off River between Swan & Craycroft

What do the teacher from Nazareth, a demi-god from Greco-Roman mythology, and an early 20th century French Jesuit theologian/paleontologist/geologist have to do with connections between spirituality and science? Please join us as Dr. Wilkinson explores early expressions of the oneness of all the created universe, as reflected in the teachings of Jesus, the worship of nature personified in the deity Pan, and the writings of Fr. Pierre Teilhard deChardin. Teilhard wrote that within every single thing, including animals, plants, the cells of our bodies, and down to the smallest particles of matter, there is “consciousness” — for that he was condemned as a heretic by the Catholic Church.

P. David Wilkinson holds the degree Doctor of Religion from The School of Theology in Claremont, California. He is a seventh generation United Methodist Minister, and recently retired after thirty-three years as pastor of St. Francis in the Foothills UMC in Tucson. He continues to make his home here in Tucson, between travels and other adventures. He is currently working on a book about Teilhard deChardin, which he has titled Jesus, Pan and Teilhard deChardin.

+++November’s First Friday Speaker+++




With Catriona O’Curry

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.
