Hauntings: Dispelling the Ghosts Who Run Our Lives

April 25, 2014 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Friday Talk:

Our ancestors believed in ghosts, and perhaps they were not far off the mark as so much of daily life is driven by invisible psychic forces, archaic agendas, and imperious admonitions and prohibitions, all the more powerful because they operate unconsciously.  What are the features of such “hauntings,” and how might we gain some further foothold on a more conscious conduct of life?
