LIGHT Events Winter/Spring 2020

LIGHT is pleased to announce that we will be partnering with McNally Robinson Booksellers as part of their Community Classroom program. The following events/classes will be held in Winter/Spring 2020:


“Spiritual Teachers: Real and False”
Douglas Staley

Unlike professionals such as physicians, lawyers and accountants, virtually anyone can call themselves a spiritual teacher. What are the qualities of a real teacher? What are the warning signs which suggest that a so-called teacher is bogus and leading a cult? The presentation will explore these and other themes and identify teachers from both Western and Eastern traditions whose authority has been called into question.

Saturday March 21, 1-3 pm - $20


“Exploring Sacred Art”
Douglas Staley

Throughout history and across cultures human beings have created works of art that have a sacred or spiritual dimension. The presentation will draw from Indigenous, Taoist, Hindu, Buddhist, Christian, Celtic and Islamic traditions, as well as Renaissance, modern and psychedelic art. We will explore the principles of subjective vs. objective art, symbolism, archetypes, colour, light, symmetry, the golden mean and spiritual themes such as love, serenity, innocence, aspiration and enlightenment.

Wednesday April 15, 7-9 pm - $20


“Spirit in the Sky: Spirituality and Pop Culture”
Manny Matas

Explore the pervasiveness of spirituality in everyday life through an examination of popular culture as expressed in music, movies, television, books, magazines, and theatre. We are constantly bombarded by spiritual messages and images which pass right over us and through us, unless we pay attention to the pervasive subliminal spirituality surrounding us. By focusing on spirituality, we can elevate our thoughts, lift our mood, and connect with unity consciousness.

Wednesday May 20, 2-4 pm - $30

The classes will take place in the Community Classroom inside McNally Robinson Booksellers at Grant Park Shopping Centre.
Pre-registration is required. To register visit www.mcnallyrobinson.com/classes or call 204-475-0483 or visit the bookstore during regular opening hours.
