LIGHT Special Events

Wednesday, May 16 - 7:00 p.m.
Manny Matas and Douglas Staley: "Time Marches On . . . Or Does It?"

The nature of time is one of the greatest mysteries of life and has been a subject of reflection, study and creative expression in poetry, art, literature, music and film, as well as in the fields of science, religion and spirituality. This multimedia presentation will explore our personal experience of time, cultural viewpoints and expressions, the discoveries of science, and the understanding of time and impermanence in the world's great spiritual teachings.

Manny Matas is a retired psychiatrist with a lengthy interest in spirituality and the paranormal. He is the author of The Borders of Normal: A Clinical Psychiatrist De-Stigmatizes Paranormal Phenomena.
Douglas Staley is the president of LIGHT and has a lifelong interest in the mysteries of the universe, especially the nature of time. He has not worn a watch for more than forty years.

Location: Robert A. Steen C.C. 980 Palmerston Avenue - Fireside Room (side entrance off the parking lot)
No admission charge - donations gratefully accepted.
