Stories of origin & the question before the Church today

After centuries of being depicted as a repentant prostitute, Mary Magdalene is acknowledged today as a leading disciple of Jesus, faithful to the bitter end at the cross, the first person to encounter the risen Christ (John’s gospel), and commissioned by him to preach the good news. This lecture places the recovery of her true gospel story in the wider context of women’s key actions during Jesus’ ministry and the years of the founding of the church. Far from ancient history, these memories offer glimpses of new ways of being church in the 21st century.

                        RIDING THE DRAGON
  Strengthening Your Inner Life in Challenging Times
   March 6th 2015 | Fordham University | Rose Hill O'Keefe Commons

presented by  Robert J. Wicks, Psy.D.
One of the greatest gifts we can share with others is a sense of our own peace.  However, we can’t share what we don’t have.  By discussing spiritual and psychological approaches to maintaining perspective and inner strength in challenging times, Dr. Wicks, an expert on the prevention of secondary stress (the pressures experienced in reaching out to others), offers insights into how we can live in peace and, in turn, extend our warmth to others without losing our own inner fire in the process.  Topics will include: “unlearning,” maintaining a sense of perspective, ordinariness, chronic and acute secondary stress, developing a self-care protocol, knowing the “voices” we need in our circle of friends to have balance and courage in life, depth self-awareness, inner darkness, and improving mindfulness.  Practical, illustrative, lively, this rich presentation will provide essential information on professional resilience and personal well-being.
