The Nexus of Science and Spirituality by Rev. Kimberly Hawkins and Dr. Alan Ackroyd
August 9 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
FREE ADMISSION – 1757 Ashland St., Ashland, OR. One mile west of I-5 Exit 14
There has been a revolution in the nature of reality as perceived by physics- from a purely physical, unconnected Universe, to a connected, Conscious Universe. Quantum physicists have discovered events such as downward causation, signal-less communication, and quantum leaps. All these scientific principles seem to correlate with long-held spiritual principles.
In any case, the intersection between science and spirituality is supporting what many faith traditions and spiritual teachers have espoused for eons. We live in an apparent self-aware universe, where everything is connected. Some would posit we are finding God in science
Dr. Alan Ackroyd and Rev. Kimberly Hawkins will explore the evidence of what is called by many different names- Cosmic Consciousness, the Ground of all Being, Divine Intelligence, God. Come for an expansive evening with lecture, shared videos, and discussion.
Rev. Kimberly Hawkins is an ordained Religious Science minister and the dynamic Co-Spiritual Director of Center for Spiritual Living Rogue Valley in Medford, Oregon. For the last seven years, in her role as sole senior minister, she has been delivering a positive and practical “New Thought” message each week during the center’s Sunday morning celebration.
Rev. Kimberly graduated from the Holmes Institute School of Ministry in San Diego in 2013 with a master’s degree in Consciousness Studies. Previously she received her undergraduate degree in French from Tufts University in Boston and a master’s degree in Counseling from Arizona State University. In addition to teaching and counseling, her background includes ten years in the TV news industry- as a reporter, morning anchor, and writer/producer of television documentaries and specials. She is the recipient of several national journalism awards.
Dr. Alan Ackroyd has practiced medicine for 35 years, including here in Ashland. He has a master’s degree in clinical psychology and has a lifelong interest in metaphysics and quantum physics.
