Book Talk - When Spirit Calls: A Healing Odyssey
Joan Diver, author of When Spirit Calls: A Healing Odyssey, shares her journey of faith from the congregation of preacher and mystic Howard Thurman to the Episcopal Church and an Indian ashram—and from physical pain to spiritual awakening.
As the executive director of Boston's Hyams Foundation for almost two decades, Joan Diver was recognized as a leader in philanthropy and social justice. A call in the Great Pyramid of Giza propelled her to abandon her career and as a student of diverse spiritual paths and a speaker from the heart, she has since offered healing to seekers, led contemplative and healing church ministries and partnered with her husband, Colin, in his roles as dean of Penn Law School and president of Reed College. Her family's story is chronicled in J. Anthony Lukas' Pulitzer Prize-winning book, Common Ground: A Turbulent Decade in the Lives of Three American Families.
Event includes reception and book signing.
