A discussion group for people who like to think twice before jumping to conclusions. Each month we dive deep into a subject with a presenter and a preassigned set of reading/audio/visual materials. Open and honest inquiry on all topics is encouraged and welcomed. The only investment is your time.
We most often meet the third Thursday of each month from 7:30 - 9:30 pm at Mark & Elizabeth England's home at 1194 South 500 East in Salt Lake City.

Think Again, February 21: Good Grief! The Nature of Lost and Found
Dialogue Leaders: Mark and Lorene de St. Aubin
Mark de St. Aubin works as an associate professor/lecturer at the College of Social Work at the University of Utah. He teaches a class to graduate students on Grief and Loss, which is always well received by the students because of his interactive approach to teaching. Mark also has a private practice dealing with those who have complicated grief issues. He has also spent many years studying and practicing meditation and mindfulness.
Lorene de St. Aubin has worked as a Chaplain in a hospital setting as well as in hospice. She received her training in Clinical Pastoral Education from St. Mark's Hospital. Lorene is also an accomplished artist and custom typographer.
Both Mark and Lorene are also talented musicians, gardeners, and know how to live artfully.
(Can I just say these two are dear friends of mine and some of the deepest, most thoughtful--and thought provoking, genuine people I know. And they know this subject well.)
