Pictured is the wall at the Institute featuring our 2012 "Great Teachers" in our Thursday afternoon Great Teacher Lecture Series. Each lecturer has his or her photo and a description of their talk along with other information about their lecture. This was a profound series with wonderful speakers such as Jeffrey Kripal, head of the department of religion at Rice U speaking on "Everyone Needs to be a Comparativist" in which he presented an introduction to his upcoming book. Another lecturer was Jon Allen, PhD from the Menninger Clinic talking on "Mentalizing God." Rabbi David Lyon gave an inspiring talk on "Psalms for Spirituality and Health." Andy Achenbaum spoke on "Rumi as a Spiritual Guide." Rabbi Sam Karff spoke on "The Healing Power of Story." It was a literal feast with topics ranging from "Guided Imagery" (Ginger Clarkson, M.A.), to "Professional Burnout" (Warren Holleman, PhD), and "the Health Effects of Sexual Trauma in Women" (Anne Koci PhD). I cannot thank our featured lecturers enough. This was truly a rich offering to our community. We were blessed.
