34 Tinker St
Woodstock, NY 12498
Moderated by Gail Straub
Best selling authors, visionary pioneers in the field of human development, and all around luminaries, Joan Borysenko and Stephen Cope will discuss the role of spirituality in dark times. Joan’s work has been foundational in an international health-care revolution that recognizes the role of meaning and the spiritual dimensions of life as integral parts of health and healing. She will discuss her many books including the very topical, It’s not the End of the World: Developing Resilience in Times of Change. Scholar-In-Residence, Kripalu Ambassador, and founder and former Director of the Kripalu Institute for Extraordinary Living, Stephen Cope will talk about his seminal new book Soul Friends: The Transforming Power of Deep Human Connection. Examining the six interpersonal archetypes that evoke and sustain true friendship, Stephen will reflect on how genuine human connection manifests optimal states of being even in the darkest of times.
This panel is a rare opportunity to hear two big-hearted and brilliant spiritual thinkers shine light on how to find meaning in the midst of confusing and challenging times.
