Dec 1   Consciousness Beyond the Body  Presentation by Sandy Wiener 

Sandy Wiener is a member, locally and nationally, of the Institute of Noetic Sciences (Ions) and of the Society for Scientific Exploration. One of their major themes is the existence of consciousness beyond the body and brain. Sandy will talk about the wonderful science behind non-local consciousness, and he will tell of some personal experiences in this arena. After degrees at Yale and Harvard, Sandy worked in Africa, Asia and New York City, before moving to Ann Arbor with Sarah to raise their children.

Dec 8   Ancient Mesopotamia Priestesses and Goddesses  Presentation by Weam Namou

Priestesses and goddesses thrived in ancient Mesopotamia.  Their great contributions to the cradle of civilization include poetry, peaceful governance, and beer! Female freedom sharply diminished in that region when secular males acquired more power and religious beliefs evolved.  Weam Namou is an Eric-Hoffer winning author of 12 books, a filmmaker, and the vice president of Detroit Working Writers. 

Dec 15            Buddhist Compassion Toward Self and The World   Presentation by Mike Whitty

A reflection on  the pursuit of emotional healing and self-acceptance while opening our hearts to embrace a possible future of  human unity.  Embracing the challenge of  affirming our civility, tolerance, acceptance of now and the sisterhood/brotherhood of mankind being created by each of us in our lifetimes.  A reflection looking outward towards serving life by shining more light on the path.  Life is a great adventure, we must be brave.  Mike Whitty is a spiritual futurist and student of integral consciousness.
