Life After Life - Raymond Mooney

Recommended Posts





Raymond and I love to share great events with you

- especially when they are FREE!

There is so much distraction, confusion, pain and suffering in the world right now it can seem overwhelming. It comes at us from our TVs, our phones, on news and social media, and sometimes it strikes us directly in losses and tragedies in our own lives. 

There is no easy solution to these challenges, but we can try to meet them with greater resilience and empathy. And we may hope to find a measure of peace and times of joy throughout. 

With that in mind, we are happy to share with you a free talk based on the teaching of Brother Lawrence, a 17th century monk who wrote:

"Many things are possible for the person who has hope. Even more is possible for the person who has faith. And still more is possible for the person who knows how to love. But everything is possible for the person who practices all three."

 We hope you enjoy!



Practicing unshakable joy with Brother Lawrence, the friar d’amour

Let Brother Lawrence help you cultivate hope in the darkest of times


Each day, we’re bombarded with stressful news and other distractions — on our televisions and phones, in the conversations around us, and within our own quiet moments of reflection.

The wisdom our world needs right now, affirms Carmen Acevedo Butcher, PhD, an award-winning translator of spiritual texts,  can be found in the teachings of Brother Lawrence, the Friar d’Amour.

Brother Lawrence was a down-to-earth mystic, monastery cook, sandal repairer, and disabled veteran who limped painfully all his adult life. 

He lived through a time that was strikingly similar to our own — marked by authoritarianism, political division, social and economic disparities, climate crises, hunger, plague, global death, and war.

As a result, his writings, found after his death in 1691, are filled with profound yet practical tools and wisdom that apply to our moment in history — equipping us to live more calmly and deeply as we connect with ourselves, others, and God. 

On Thursday, June 16, join us for a powerful event with Carmen to discover more about Brother Lawrence’s gentle, simple practices for returning to love — and feeling more grounded in the midst of life’s biggest distractions and greatest challenges.
