Summer Book Study
and In-person Speaker Event with Dr. Lisa Miller

In collaboration with Agape Church, Congregational Church of Needham, UCC St. Andrew’s, St. Mary’s, Wellesley Village Church

Sunday, September 15th—2pm

Author of; The Awakened Brain: The New Science of Spirituality and Our Quest For An Inspired Life and The Spiritual Child: The New Science on Parenting for Health and Lifelong Thriving.

We are excited to announce that Dr. Lisa Miller (https://www.lisamillerphd.com/) will discuss her work in person on Sunday, Sept. 15th—2pm, at our church.

Whether meditation, walking in nature, reading a sacred text, or praying, there are many ways to tap into a heightened awareness of the world around you and your place in it. In The Awakened Brain, psychologist Dr. Lisa Miller shows you how.

Absorbing, uplifting, and ultimately enlightening, The Awakened Brain and The Spiritual Child is a conversation-starting saga of scientific discovery packed with counterintuitive findings and practical advice on concrete ways to access your innate spirituality and build a life of meaning and contribution.

Listen to US Surgeon General Vivek Murthy’s House Calls podcast interview on The Awakened Brain.

The program is for you, grandparents, parents, lay leaders, individuals, and those concerned about someone’s mental health.

Whether you’re looking to dig deeper as a parent, educator, or simply curious, our two-part discussion series will enlighten and inspire you. The same topic is offered at two different times on the same day for your convenience. We encourage you to discover a more profound sense of spirituality this summer. Choose one book group or attend both.

We have pre-ordered 15 copies of each of Dr. Miller’s books, which will be available for purchase at the Celebration Sunday Book Swap (cash or check), or you can order online from the Wellesley Book Store at a discounted price.
