Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic it has been necessary to reschedule many speaking events. Until restrictions on gatherings and travel are lifted, I am available for virtual speaking events. These virtual events include video conferences, retreats, lectures, and meetings with book study groups.

Whether you wish to schedule a virtual event or you are ready to make tentative plans for in-face events, you can contact my assistant Holly Davis (holly@epiwla.org) to get me on your calendar.

Here are some of the themes and topics I’m addressing this year:

  • Everyday Resurrections
  • Growing Beyond Your Past
  • Recovering from Shame and Blame
  • Finding Forgiveness and Freedom
  • Suffering and the Healing Power of Compassion
  • Finding Hope in Life’s Messy Places

Upcoming Events for 2020
