Welcome, friends! Come to Paradise Found on Thursday, February 9th at 5 p.m. for a special evening with Constance McClain and James Walker, well known local luminaries. They will be sharing and signing their book, Mindful Paths: Steps Towards A Living Spirituality . This fabulous work is the result of Constance McClains 30-year exploration into the vast world of spiritual practices and religious commonalities. Her work has evolved into a fully-accredited college curriculum in Holistic Studies the first of its kind in the state of California.Please join her and co-author James Walker in an adventure of the Spirit which will transform you, and which will change the ways in which you perceive yourself, your personal possibilities and your relationships with others forever with an ever expanded sense of respect and reverence for a world in need of larger love, compassion and human rights. About Constance McClain: A completely unexpected near death experience in 2013 brought her an increased sense of urgency to become more deeply in service and in 2017, her enduring dream of ministry was fulfilled, and she was ordained as an InterFaith/ Interspiritual minister through the One Spirit Interfaith Seminary. Today, Constance has an unwaivering perspective: that her love of life, all things sacred, holy and divine continue to support her through even the most life-changing of adversities, and it is being mindful of this spiritual dimension of health that is at the very core of Mindful Paths: Steps Towards a Living Spirituality. About James Walker: He began his formal studies in music composition at Boston University, and later as a Graduate Teaching Fellow and founding Director of the Computer Music Studio at The University of Chicago. While today much of his work is best described aspainting with sound, he still finds it a distinct honor to have studied with four Pulitzer Prize winners, as well as many gifted mentors along the way. He was ordained in 2017 by the One Spirit Interfaith Ministry, and today he blends his musical vision, his years of research into generative techniques, and his spirituality into transformative ambient music that has been highly acclaimed for use with meditation, relaxation, therapy for the sleep-deprived, and supportive environments for a wide variety of somatic practices. His newest album, Floating, will be out soon! Today, he and life partner Rev. Constance McClain co-direct Oasis of the Heart, an inclusive InterFaith/InterSpiritual ministry without walls drawing spiritual nourishment from the core tenets of many of the worlds great wisdom paths, and together, they seek to promote a deeper understanding of the beliefs we all share in common, so that we can begin to better embrace our differences.
