Creating a Life

December 7, 2001 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Friday Talk:

Can we create our lives, or does life create us?

How is it that we are free but create such repetitive patterns?

How does fate collide with destiny and catch us in between?

What are the sources of those replications, and what are the insights we need to maximize such freedom as we may have?

In this lecture, Dr. Hollis will explore these questions which haunt the modern who, wishing freedom, creates repetition, yet longs for an authentic journey.
